Toney could floor Calzaghe possibly, which would effect the scoring. But peak/peak, it's going to be a difficult task as I've seen Calzaghe really eat some bombs and not blink, despite the KD vs. Mitchell.

I feel it would be clear, 8-4 like.
Good point...Joe is very good with using his legs and feet....But prime for prime Toney would be in shape, faster and more agile. Those are all advantages against Joe.

I think Joe would still make it a good fight but ultimately loosing to the better fighter overall.

Toney by narrow UD. If both are at 168, though, Calzaghe takes it. Toney was too drained in the lighter weights.
Right! And he was still able to kick most of the best fighters at that weights ass. He was pretty ****ing amazing.

I agree with CUnninghamm over here. Toney UD or late KO.

I am a big Calzaghe fan but i would take Toney by stoppage or K.O. I think joe would win most of the early rounds but i think Toney would have annoyed him so much with his pre fight and in ring comments that the macho Calzaghe would at some point in the fight stand and trade and that would be his downfall.

People just don't realize how much of a beast JT was.

Toney by stoppage.

A prime Toney was an unreal fighter.

Of course he does....when comparing him to Jeff Lacy....but we are comparing him to James Toney and while Joe is very, very good....JT is GREAT and superior to Joe.

They can box each other and I think Joe is the more dyanmic boxer.

They can fight on the inside and Joe is an EXCELLENT inside fighter.

Toney is a legendary fighter but I think Joe nicks it.

Toney would crush him

IF he could catch him. It could be RJJ-Toney II, if not.

Which of James Toney's classical boxing manuevers would he use to counter a lightning combination of half a dozen slaps exactly -questionmark-

Toney by stoppage is ridiculous. Calzaghe is not getting stopped.

Tony by KTFO. Calzaghe wouldn't land ****, and Tony would bust him up with counters.

Toney. Who the hell has Calzaghe fought that even comes close to a prime Toney?

Toney has lost to fighters that don't even come close to prime or even past prime Calzaghe -fullstop- That is a more decisive fact than "Calzaghe's fought nobody" -fullstop-
