    When he was in his own weight class, he was one of the most skilled boxers in boxing history


    What an incredible talent

    One of the strongest chin fighters in the history of boxing. Hollyfield hit Toney as many as he could but couldn't stop him.

    Pretty crazy really, ATG chin, very, very skilled, meaningful wins from MW to HW, but somehow...leaves you feeling a little underwhelmed? Probably because he underachieved? That attitood.

    He sounds like my alcoholic Uncle. I mean I could have been laughing and nodding at anything but it seem to get him to stop talking to me.

    Speech jokes aside, Toney was an absolutely formidable fighter.

    Bitter know-nothing. Stick to topics you actually know something about. "Butchered". Lmfao.

    Toney was a phenomenal boxer in his prime and at his ideal weight

    He really isn't revered as much as he should be

    I think his ideal weight was at 168lbs against Barkley and Prince Charles Williams but then he choked against Roy Jones due to weight discipline issues. His win and draw vs McCallum were amazing. Beating the Russian cruiserweight Champ then the heavyweight title was crazy. I was shocked when he toyed with a passed his prime Holyfield. A true all time Great. He should have never fought Randy Couture though. He had no defense for a world class double leg takedown and was finished with the bare naked choke hold.
