Personally, I have to give the nod to Toney. The reason being that Roy was a gifted athlete that relied upon reflexes and unorthodox stylings which would be incredibly difficult to apply to anyone other than the top 1% of fighters in the world.Toney seems to be the one that I would go to for fundamentals. To me, Toney’s weight problems and constant fluctuations highlight his skill and defensive brilliance. The ability to stand in the pocket against naturally far larger men seems to be unparalleled. Add in his shoulder rolls, head movement, boxing from the ropes, and counter punching. It’s exactly these textbook old school techniques that I think are badly needed in today’s fighters. I remember assisting in the gym and studying guys like Paul Ingle and Buster Mathis Jr for their bobbing and weaving, as well as guys like Paul Spadafora, Sweet Pea, and Toney. It’s said that legendary trainers like Cus D’Amato required that his pupils studied film on a regular basis. For me, training with guys like Toney or even in the Mayweather gym could provide so much. I just couldn’t see too many guys being able to emulate the brilliance of someone like Roy however. He’s just too abnormal, too much of a freak of nature.
