Lebedev on James Toney: Verbal Attacks Don't Hurt

By Luke Furman

32-year-old Russian cruiserweight contender Denis Lebedev (22-1, 17 KOs) is not paying attention to the trash talk of his upcoming opponent, former three division world champion James Toney (73-6-3, 44 KOs), who is 43-years-old. Toney arrived at their press conference in Russia, to officially announce their November 4th clash. Toney vowed to knock Lebdev out cold. Because the fight is six weeks away, Lebedev expects a lot of trash talk to take place.

"Verbal attacks are just part of his plan. Toney hopes that he can scare me, but that won't happen. Before our fight, Roy Jones was also very confident of victory, but confidence is not enough. I'm training hard on the basis of strength and endurance. On November 4th, I'll show Toney that the Red Army is the strongest," Lebedev said.

I think Toney is shot to fuk but hopefully he still got enough skills to overcome Lebedev. If he loses, he should retire but I doubt we'll see that happen. Either that or fight Roy Jones lol

Toney is an ATG, truly one of the most talented fighters to ever lace up the gloves. He could've competed in any era and Lebedev would've been easily picked apart by James in his prime. Toney's advanced age makes this an even fight but if he's got a decent performance left in him, which is cert...

[QUOTE=Grinderman]Toney's going to take a vicious beating. The only question is, are his reflexes totally gone, or does what remains of his defensive skills save him from a KO? This isn't Damon Reed. Lebedev can hit hard.[/QUOTE] That was a grossly obese nearly 260lb. James Toney that fou...

[QUOTE=GreatestIam]Da **** half bolded is half truths, the **** highlighted is facts.... you have no clue what your saying... it will be a competitive fight definetely no Jirov v Toney... But this aint UFC, Toney has enough wit, charecter, skills left, ring generalship, and quality defense to sec...

[QUOTE=Grinderman]Toney's reflexes are gone. He has no power and couldn't even hurt a bum like Damon Reed. I'm not Lebedev's biggest fan, but he's going to hurt Toney badly. Toney has pugilistic dementia, he mumbles and drools and can barely speak. For anyone who actually likes him, it's trag...
