James Toney Faces Matt Legg as First Prizefighter Foe

James Toney is a marked man in the sold-out Team UK vs. Team USA Prizefighter tomorrow night (November 14) at the York Hall in Bethnal Green live on Sky Sports after his antics at this week’s promo shoot.

The three-weight IBF World champion will face Matt Legg in the second quarter-final and after upsetting his fellow fighters as the eight contenders for the 32nd edition of Matchroom Sport’s eight-man, one night tournament met in London for Sky Sports.

“He was disrespectful and rude to the UK boxers barely acknowledging us and wanting his own changing room away from all other boxers,” said Tom Little, who drew former World Cruiserweight title challenger Brian Minto in the fourth quarter-final.

“I will make him pay for what he said and is saying about us UK boys. The other American boxers were all pleasant and nice guys but it won’t stop me beating them up.”

Hackney fighter Larry Olubamiwo kicks-off the action against Florida’s Jason Gavern in the first quarter-final while Michael Sprott’s bid two become a two-time Prizefighter champion begins against Damien Wills in the third quarter-final.

The action in east London gets underway at 7.30 with Cruiserweight prospect Ben Ileyemi facing Moses Matovu over four-rounds in his second pro bout while Olympic Gold medal hero Anthony Joshua MBE is on the hunt for his third KO win in the paid ranks against Croatian Hrvoje Kisicek, with that clash taking place between the semi-finals and final of Prizefighter.

Quarter-final 1: Larry Olubamiwo 18st 3oz vs. Jason Gavern 17st 1lb 10oz

Quarter-final 2: Matt Legg 16st 6lbs 13oz vs. James Toney 15st 7lbs 10oz

Gonna put a tenner on Sprott. It is looking like easy money.

Matt Legg doesn't have a leg to stand on in this tournament.
