On any given day I believe one could beat the other.
Very evenly matched. Who ever is on, on that particular night wins.

I think I would pick B-Hop regardless of the weight they were matched at, I think he is a superior ring general - to much onus on Tunney to force the fight.

Having said that, I do think that Toney is underated following the steroids debicle.

Toney was so weight drained for that fight he was hardly there at all. Not that i'm saying he would have won, just that he was drained.

I agree with you. I've always said it's a composite sport, training etc. inlcuded.

All I was pointing out was that it's not wise to use Roy's victory over Toney as a measuring stick for Roy's talent as Toney was not the guy that is in that video on that particular evening.

I think Toney would win a decision against Hopkins at 160lbs he had it all at the lower weights decent power, great defence, great counter punching, great chin and good hand speed.
