James Toney making his MMA debut against Randy Couture...good or bad for Boxing??
James Toney making his MMA debut against Randy Couture
We all know Toney is just looking to milk this thing for money.......but I can't possibly think of any reason why he would do this....vs Captain America.....Randy Couture maybe old and waaaaay past his prime....but its exactly because he is old and waaaaay past his prime that this is a no win situation for Boxing....if Toney beats him....so what he beat and old legend....if he gets a beat down....it reinforces MMA's belief that boxers are somehow less than them....I just don't see the point other than this being a circus stunt....no good for either sport....

he is old, fat, past his prime, lazy I could go on.... It was bad for boxing that he was still around never mind going into mma.
Now it would be different if Vitali, Wlad or Haye said f.u.c.k it lets fight Lesner

Boxing doesn't live or die based on an MMA match.
What's good for boxing? To work with what we already have (or should have):
Haye vs Wladimir
Mayweather vs Pacquiao
Super 6 Tournament = good fights
Loaded 140lb, 147lb, 126, 168 etc divisions
Gamboa vs Lopez
Boxing has its own work to do, yes...but Boxing also has its own gems that need to be taken advantage of when the iron is hot (Wlad/Haye, Floyd/Pacman, etc)
