James Toney is Set To Invade Russia This Friday

By Alexey Sukachev

James Toney (73-6-3, 44 KOs), 43, regarded as boxing's bombastic and eloquent king of trash-talk, was also once known to be one of the game’s soundest defensive wizards. This Friday, Toney will be showcased live in Moscow, when Vladimir Hryunov stages a specifically designated press conference. On November 4, Toney, a three-time/three-division world champion, takes on the WBO's #1 ranked cruiserweight Denis Lebedev (22-1, 17 KOs), 32, in a big main event. The card will be organized by Hryunov.

Lebedev and Toney will get head-to-head for the first time at the Atrium Center, which is located in the heart of Moscow. Accompanying the contestants will be Hryunov, newly crowned WBA heavyweight champion Alexander Povetkin and ring legend Kostya Tszyu. The presser starts at 6 PM LT.

To latinking- That's just coincidence...let me restate my thought, I take back that it's the boxers fault, it was the ref allowing Roy to be hurt like that. Their job is to protect the fighter and that guy obviously didnt.…
