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.
