I'm not even questioning their logic really, because I already know how fucked up it is...but I'm just saying, as a fan, how can someone even support this fight. I mean, to ask what makes James Toney worthy of a shot???? Shit, other than him being a future Hall of Famer who can actually still fight and will draw eyes to the bout just on the strength of his smack talk alone, how about the fact that he's ranked higher than Snoozeski? I mean, don't get me wrong, I'm not saying the KLIT BITCHES are obligated to fight Toney, but damn, as the heavyweight champions of the world, they do have a duty to uphold the legacy of past champions and make the division as exciting as possible by giving fans meaningful fights. James Toney may not be the answer at heavyweight, but the motherfucker comes to fight and he ain't going to lay down the minute he eats the first jab from Vitalia. That's the problem I have with a lot of these heavyweights these days. It's like as soon as they eat the first jab from one of the KLIT BITCHES, they just freeze up and immediately go into survival mode. When the hell have you EVER seen James Toney go into survival mode? NEVER! And I tell you what, if the KLIT BITCHES are THAT good to where they do beat the shit out of James Toney, that's GREAT for the division too. The point is, these two BITCHES need to be put into the ring with someone who's skillful enough and mean enough to FORCE them into a fight...thus far, they've been content to take on every inexperienced or bitch as heavyweight that's out there. Say what you will about James Toney's weight, but the motherfucker ain't a bitch...he's definitely going to make the BITCHKOS fight, and quite frankly, I think that's just something that neither one of those guys are interested in...being in a real fight. I'm just saying. I'm not downplaying their skills, because I do think they're a tough assignment for anyone...but man, let me see what they can do when they're actually standing across the ring from a real dog. There just aren't very many real dogs in the heavyweight division right now. A lot of BITCHES, but very few dogs.
I agree, that the division is fucked right now, and that the Klitschkos tend to fight safe. That said, there's not many HW fighter who are going to be able to do much with them, considering their size advantages. Whether that's just do to them being so much larger than everyone else, or the fact that everyone else sucks, I dunno. Although the landscape does have some bright spots, overall it's not that great.
And I would have ZERO problem with him fighting either one of the brothers, but I just get this feeling from so many people that he's got a fucking birthright to fight them anytime he wants. That just by him talking shit and being "exciting" at press conferences, that they need to drop everything and kowtow to his every whim, and that they are obligated to fight him.
That's where I find fault. Not with the idea of him fighting them. He's paid his dues in this fight game, and while his recent fight history hasn't been illustrious, that too could be a product of just there not being much out there.
I haven't really been excited about a Toney fight since Jirov, to be honest. And for all the "Excitement" that he brings to a press conference and hyping the fight, is anyone really believing that this fight would go differently than any other of their defenses?
I mean Haye's a fairly exciting guy as far as abilities and whatnot. He talks a massive game and then look at his fight with Valuev. No matter how good a fighter is, if you have someone who's that much larger than you, and has decided to fight safe, there's really not much you can do.
Just my opinions anyway.
