EVANDER HOLYFIELD vs. JAMES TONEY (Showtime) 

Description : Here we have an original full-size 'Showtime' boxing closed circuit fight poster for the heavyweight bout held at the Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas, Nevada USA, 4th October 2003.

Toney, a pudgy 217 pounds after winning his first world title at 157 a dozen years ago, dominated Holyfield. He beat Holyfield to the punch with quicker hands, peppered him with combinations, took the occasional counterpunch without flinching and battered Holyfield, a four-time heavyweight champion, to the body.

Michael Katz, of the New York Times wrote: It was painful to watch one of boxing's great warriors, Evander Holyfield, grow older by the round Saturday night while getting beaten up by James Toney, a former middleweight champion. This was just a hero being brutally outclassed and outpunched.

''I'm sorry I had to do that to him,'' Toney said. ''He's a great fighter, and I have a lot of respect for him.'' Body punches finally put Holyfield down in the ninth round. A left hook to the side, a punch which made Holyfield double up in pain in the sixth round, hurt him in the ninth. Holyfield, a 1984 Olympian, stumbled away and Toney hit him with a lighter hook to the side. Holyfield collapsed. He beat the count of the referee, Jay Nady, but by this time Turner was following the inspector and towel into the ring.
