BoxingScene.com's sister site, Allboxing.ru, revealed earlier this morning that James Toney (76-9-3, 46KOs) is ready and willing to enter the ring against Roy Jones Jr. (56-8, 40KOs) on December 21 in Moscow, at the Dynamo Palace of Sports in Krylatskoye. Jones dominated Toney for a career defining victory back in 1994. Jones has not fought since June 2012, while Toney was recently in action three times this year, including two fights on the same night during last month's Prizefighter tournament in the UK.

Jones is currently scheduled to face 36-year-old French fighter Zine Eddine Benmakluf in a "winner takes all" encounter, where the winner walks away with all of the purse money.

The lead promoter of the event, Vladimir "красивый" Hryunov, states the following on the current situation.

"Tony's manager Steve Tannenbaum came to me with a proposal to organize a rematch between Tony and Jones. According to Steve, Tony is in good shape, his weight right now is at 216 pounds, and he's dreamed for all these years to secure a rematch against Jones Jr., who beat him back in 1994. Jones' promoter, John Wirt, needs some time to think this over and we also need to clarify Toney's willingness to ensure that all of the prize money will go to the winner of battle. The winner is going to take it all."

These two must be making some good money if it's taking place in Moscow. I suppose the Russian public is easily fooled and I bet they can market this thing like it's 1994 and they won't know the difference. I personally would have liked the fight to take place in England. At least there they real...

This is the kind of fight that Jones wakes up for. And Toney wants revenge from the first L he took from RJ mainly because everyone keeps talking about it. I don't see much changing from the first meet up. RJ will be cautious because Toney still has a heavy hand but Jones's speed will be too much...
