Top rated WBO cruiserweight contender Ola Afolabi (18-2-3, 8 KOs), shared his thoughts on the potential showdown between former multi-division champion James Toney (73-6-3, 44 KOs), and hard-hitting Denis Lebedev (22-1, 17 KOs), which is scheduled to take place on November 5th in Moscow. It will Toney's first fight at cruiserweight in several years.

"I think Toney has a huge arsenal of tricks, which he successfully uses in the ring. He knows how to catch Lebedev punches. The question is - how hard is Denis' chin because Toney has a granite jaw. James is a very experienced boxer who has won over 70 professional fights, so I don't think that he's going to stand motionless in front of Lebedev and wait for his punches. I think the chances in this fight are distributed in the proportions of 60 to 40 in favor of Toney," Afolabi told Alexander Pavlov.

Afolabi is talking about a James Toney that hasn't existed for years....Lebedev will destroy him, if the fight comes off.
