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.”

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.


I (+1) this message. But I definitely think its over for him. Too many years of mistreating himself. I think his muscle memory has expired...

I used to find his interviews nearly as entertaining as his fights...and I'm such a sucker for a "comeback"...but I think it's fair to call the code on this one.
