Former three division champion James "Lights Out" Toney (77-6-3, 44KOs) is promising to punish cruiserweight Denis Lebedev (22-1, 17KOs) on November 4th at the Khodynka Ice Palace in Moscow, Russia. Speaking with reporter Alexander Pavlov, Toney promised to crush the hopes of the up and coming Lebdev and cripple his career. He doesn't believe will be able to sustain the punishment for too long.

"I'll break Lebedev physically and mentally. I'm not sure how much he will take. Maybe [it's over] in four rounds. All these young guys, boxers on the rise, with whom I fought, I destroyed," Toney said. 

"I'm very serious about this fight. If I fight someone, I want to destroy him. Both mentally and physically. So much so, that the last two or three years, other boxers simply refuse to fight me, thinking that I'm too dangerous. And yet they say I'm old and fat. But if I am, punish me for it! Lebedev, after what he did with Roy Jones - is one of the best boxers in this division."
