James Toney really digs MMA, even knows who Fedor is

James Toney will forever go down as my…second favorite boxer out there. Anyone that says “I just have this thing inside me that wants to eat and conquer. Maybe it’s egotistical, but I have it in me. I don’t want to be a tycoon. I just want to conquer people and their souls.” pretty much wins my vote as greatest boxer of all time (we love you Tyson and thanks for making me slam my NES controller on my parents coffee table in frustration). James Toney has a ‘Hornilicious‘ record of 72-6 and the dude is still the current NABO and IBA Heavyweight champion. When he was questioned about his allegedy steroid use, Toney slapped the reporter in the face and said “If I’m the poster boy for steroids, steroids is going out of business.” . In an interview with BallerStatus.com (which should have a picture of Lee Murray as their mascot), Toney opened up about MMA and…Brock Lesnar!: 

“[Boxing’s] gone downhill because look at the fighters we got…Everybody is scared to fight each other. That’s the main reason why people are going from boxing to MMA, because MMA is putting on the fights that everybody wanna see … My daddy was one of them MMA guys. I love it. I like watching it. They putting on the best shows. That’s why the boxing people get mad because they getting all the fans. They’re giving the fans all the good matches, which should be done in boxing. I watch it, but they can’t mess with me … I like [Quinton] Rampage [Jackson]. I like watching … not Brock Lesnar. He’s phony. Fedor Emelianenko, he aight. Georges St. Pierre.”

Props go to James Toney for knowing who Fedor is and someone working at the Rumor Mill just gave me a note, Ray Mercer vs. James Toney. MMA Rules. Look out for it. [Source]
