James Toney Fights On, Joins Prizefighter on 11/14

Three weight World Champion James Toney is among the first names announced for the Britain vs. USA Prizefighter International Heavyweights bill at the York Hall in Bethnal Green on Thursday November 14, with Anthony Joshua MBE topping the bill in his third pro fight live on Sky Sports.

Toney joins fellow countryman Sherman ‘The Tank’ Williams, Prizefighter II winner Sam Sexton and the returning Larry Olubamiwo as the first four names revealed in the line-up for the 32nd edition of the eight-man, one night tournaments.

Olympic Gold medal hero Joshua is in action in Sheffield this weekend (October 26) and will return to the capital for his third pro bout, and he’ll be joined on the card by his cousin Ben Ileyemi, who made his debut at Cruiserweight on the same bill Joshua at The O2 earlier this month.

“Word got out this morning that James Toney was in the line-up and it’s already caused some reaction,” said Hearn. “Heavyweight Prizefighter is always the most exciting edition of the tournament and we are looking forward to selecting the final four participants. It’s also great to have Anthony back in the capital as he continues his journey in the division and we expect a quick sell out for the November 14 event.”

Tickets for ‘Joshua and The Prizefighters’ are on sale now priced £40 (unreserved), £70 (ringside) and £120 (VIP) available from www.matchroomboxing.com and on 01277 359900.

Prizefighter is always a fun tourney to watch. You get hodge podge of gatekeepers, has beens, brawlers, prospects going at it in a neat 3 round format. I'm hoping they add Prizefighter alum Martin Rogan and Audley to the list…

Toney isn't a 3 round fighter even at this of his career...
