Toney looks alot smaller than Gerald there, he also looks class as ever, I love to watch Toney fight, such a natural.

I wonder if Steward released this after coming on the forums and seeing the interest there was out there

What was the issue Toney had with Steward?

Can you imagine if Toney had dedicated himself like Floyd has?

I remember someone posting this. Great footage.

Toney was such stylistic kryptonite for McClellan, seemed effortless.

I think Toney didnt like the fact that Steward trained wlad. Might be more but I don't know. He had nothing but good things to say about emmanuel steward when he passed away though.

Definitely thought Hearns got the better of the sparring with McCallum. He was popping him at will with the left. McClellan was actually looking pretty sharp offensively early on, then Toney just started turning up the heat, and McClellan couldn't land the long right to save his life. Should've hooked off the jab. Don't think he had that in his arsenal, though, even if he was more disciplined technically early in his career.

I always thought if Hearns fights a technical fight and jabs he would beat Mike easily. In a way Hearns did better when he hurt his right hand a little and had to fight a jabbing fight. When he threw his right he became reckless. I think a younger faster Hearns who fought Benitez outboxes any version of McCallum at 154. The post Hagler Tommy Hearns is the Hearns that Mike would do better against because Tommy got a little slower and reckless. He was not as effective so he did the bombs away approach more. The Pre-Hagler Hearns was the best.

I really like the footage, but don't think it's very much about "who got the better of who?". They didn't seem like they were really trying to get the better of the other, more working on their stuff. Trying things out.

and McClellan was trying to take Toney's head off with that right hand, but for the most part I agree it's just sparring.

Errol Christie was a sensation in the Kronk in the early 80s in sparring, matching and bettering everyone. He did nothing as a pro.
