    Total Legend. Top 20 Unbelievable skills. saw Him fight Booker back in 04' at Pechanga. He tried to take a puff off of a stogie between rounds! Totally Hilarious. Also he called my friend a '****stick' on his way out of the ballroom. LOL.

    Well, not really. Nobody toys with the GOAT.

    Laughable.

    Go and watch Toney in action, then watch Greg...

    We don't have any footage of Greb.

    I gotta say Greb looks very amateurish in that short training clip.

    Tiberi is really not in Toney's class. Greb , we have no footage of him. Quawi, he might beat Toney in a close contest but it is by no means a given

    “Very” would be putting it lightly!

    Didn’t Toney drink Pepsi during training?

    One of the most skilled fighters of all time. Clearly the best mw of the unbelievably strong era of the early 90s. Was amongst the best in every weight class he campaigned in. Greater than Hopkins imo.

    Love to watch the guy, hard to rank, though. His talent was special, but still a bit overrated.

    Definitely an all time great!! Cement chin. His ability to slip roll and counter moving his upper body was beautiful. Dude was old school, born to fight. Mean streak, hella entertaining in and out of the ring. Could be lazy and show up out of shape but always gave an effort. When on and at his best was tough to beat!!!

    I agree that he ranks above Hopkins. But below RJ
