James Toney: I'll Kick Povetkin's Ass After Lebedev!

All-time-great boxing champion James "Lights Out" Toney is turning a negative into a positive… As in he’s positive he’s going to Russia to kick Denis Ledbedev’s ass. Toney has decided to re-focus on his boxing career and target the #1 cruiserweight contender Denis Ledbedev, who recently knocked out one of his old-time rivals, Roy Jones Jr.
 
“November 5, I’m going to invade Russia and show this punk what happens when he messes with the USA,” said the always quotable Toney. “I’m calling it ‘Lights Out in Russia’ because he’s just the first one I’m going to whip. After I beat up this Ledbedev, I’m going back to Heavyweight after the one too afraid to fight the Klitchko sisters. Povetkin, I’m kicking his ass too!”
 
Toney was last seen in the ring in February when he pitched a 10-round shutout over veteran Damon Reed. He is the current IBA Heavyweight Champion.
 
“If they think the Roy Jones fight was big over there, wait till I get there and tell them all what I think about European fighters bringing great American fighters over there once they’re showing signs of age and acting like beating them means anything. The Roy Jones that this Ledbedev beat was finished. I’m ready and I’m as good as I’ve ever been. Watch what I do to him. And now I hear Povetkin wants to beat up Evander Holyfield, he's been done since I knocked his ass out in 2003. If Povetkin isn't scared he can jump in the ring after I put his teammate away on November 5th”
 
“I’m going to beat [Lebedev's] ass right at his weight class, so he can’t make any excuses". The last time James Toney fought at this weight he beat the than undefeated IBF Cruiserweight Champion Vasiliy Jirov in what became 2003 fight of the year. "I’m going to do it again in November.” James " Lights out" Toney proclaimed.

Toney is shot. If Toney somehow beats Lebedev it's says a lot about how much Lebedev sucks. Any top fighter should beat Toney today. Tarver vs Lebedev is the fight I want to see. Tarver by UD

[QUOTE=Grinderman;11107272]Toney is in hock to the IRS and desperate for a big payday. He hasn't got a chance against any top contender at heavyweight or cruiserweight. He's punch-drunk, his reflexes are gone, and weight loss ain't gonna help that.[/QUOTE] sit…

James Toney may talk a lot of ****, but the dude backs it up. I believe that Toney will destroy Lebedev, especially with his uncanny skills. Toney is more skilled boxing wise than Bernard Hopkins. He sets you up beautifully…

If James Toney can make 200lbs, then he can easily dominate that division. Make no mistake, he still has so much pure boxing ability and one of the highest ring IQ's I have ever seen. No one else in HW…
