The weights are in for Friday's big fight at the Ice Palace in Moscow, Russia. Former three division champion James "Lights Out" Toney returns to the cruiserweight division for the first time since 2003. For his last fight he weighed 257-pounds in February, but he came in at 199-pounds at the official weigh-in. The opponent, hard banger Denis Lebedev (22-1, 17 KOs) came in at 197-5-pounds. Toney (73-6-3, 44 KOs) vs. Lebdev will have the vacant interim-WBA title at stake.
In the co-feature, undefeated cruiserweight Ismayl Sillakh came in very light at 189-pounds, while opponent Ali Ismailov was 198.

[QUOTE=JAB5239;11368944][FONT="Tahoma"][COLOR="Navy"] Stamina is the ONLY issue. If he can put up a decent 12 round work rate than he wins this fight with ease.[/COLOR][/FONT][/QUOTE] you dont seem like you know allot about boxingComment by Drunk Punch on 11-04-2011
He dropped near sixty pounds, that's impressive. Let's hope he doesn't ruin Lebedev's good looks.Comment by HW CHAMPS on 11-04-2011
