Legend and former multi-weight ruler James Toney says he “has the fire back,” ahead of his upcoming (April 28th) Australian adventure with unbeaten giant Lucas “Big Daddy” Browne. Toney is 44-years-old now, and he has not fought since stopping a tough but overmatched Bobby Gunn a year ago.

Yet despite this, and the despite fact that “Lights Out” has not beaten a ranked heavyweight since his 2008 points win over Fres Oquendo, Toney feels he is not only back to his best, but that he is the best heavyweight out there. A big win over 33-year-old Browne, 15-0(14) will, Toney insists, lead to a fight with either “one of the Bitschko Sisters, or David Gay.”

Bitschko Sisters/David Gay<<<<LOL, classic ish talk from James Lights Out Baloney!!

This guy pisses me off so much because to be completely honest, I've always been a BIG fan of his. I LOVE his boxing technique and skill. He just does not take himself serious enough in terms of his dedication to the sport. His disrespecting his own skill and the sport by coming into fights in that condition. Skill wise, he IS better than every single heavyweight in the sport. However, you just can't come in looking like a glazed up Christmas ham and expect to beat any notable fighter...even if it is the heavyweight division. I'll tell you one thing though, I'd like his chances against guys like Mitchell if he got into anywhere near decent condition.

DAAAAMN !! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif) "Tits Out" Toney...

He really is at 220 again ? One would think dropping to 200 and actually looking like a boxer will change his approach...if there is any...

I'm almost ashamed to see what's become of Toney nowadays. Watching an interview of him slur and forget the ass-end of every sentence that came out of his mouth, was painful.

I don't wanna see this dude fight again. I saw his fight with RJJ again last week, and he's damn near the polar opposite of that today. His style is sloppy, to say the least. Watching him flop up and down, arm punch, and shoulder roll his way through a fight is disgusting.

I'm almost certain that he's just looking for that one big payday before he retires...IF that's gonna be enough to cover his debts and his "Gimme tha whole plate" diet.

Remember the Land Of Wasted Opportunities or LOWO???? Well, he has a summer home there, that should be his primary and ONLY residence.

We need to revisit that post and add a few names.
