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.
