James Toney-Denis Lebedev is Moved To November 4

By Alexey Sukachev

Contrary to previously reported dates, the fight between top-ranked cruiserweight contender Denis Lebedev (22-1, 17 KOs) and aging ring legend James “Lights Out” Toney (73-6-3, 44 KOs) will not take place on November 5.

According to several well-informed sources, the huge event, which is being guided by  top Russian boxing personality Vladimir Hryunov, has been rescheduled for November 4 but is still intact and will be held at the Khodynka Ice Palace in Moscow, Russia.

WBO #1 Lebedev is coming off a brutal knockout of another American icon of the past, Roy Jones Jr., in a rough and tough affair this past May. Toney, who successfully came back into boxing business in February, has never been stopped as a prizefighter.

Highly regarded light heavyweight rising star Ismayl Sillakh (16-0, 13 KOs) takes on American Chris Henry (25-2, 20 KOs) in what seems to be an eliminator for one of the major belts. Former lightweight champion Nate Campbell (34-8-1, 25 KOs) and undefeated Russian super bantamweight Alexander Bakhtin (27-0, 11 KOs) are other possible participants for the event.

Sillakh/Henry should be the main event...vg bout w/Sillakh winning...Toney is nothing but a rep for Pilsbury as their "dough boy"...

James Toney is not just fat anymore he's shot. His chin isn't the same and he's not as slick. I hope he proves me wrong.

Im wondering who even watched the RJJ fight, he was smacking lebedev around until he got lucky. Prof. Toney is going to make him look silly, and he will stick his tongue out and laugh at him the whole time…

Well I know diuretics are banned so they can't be used to make weight. Do the rules say anything about liposuction?
