James Toney is outspoken to a fault. He says what’s on his mind, no matter who it alienates. But when we turn down the volume and take measure of Toney the fighter, one realizes what an incredible talent he was. His April 26, 2003 fight at Foxwoods Resort in Mashantucket, Connecticut for the IBF cruiserweight title was one of Toney’s shining moments. He was fighting above his natural weight, and he lumbered a bit more than one might like. But there’s no denying Toney’s ring generalship, his almost sixth sense within the squared circle. And best of all, as this fight indicates, James knew how to turn out the lights when he had to.

A toe 2 toe battle all the way, the sheer number of punches landed in the fight by both fighters made it nearly impossible to score. Toney was confident he had it won on the cards going into the 12th, but so was Jirov. What happened next was the round of the year. Both fighters opened up in the early part of the frame. Jirov appeared to catch Toney early as Toney slipped back across the ring. Thinking he had gained the advantage, Jirov poured it on. It was premature. “Lights Out” still had some gas in the tank. It turned out to be just a bit more than Jirov had left. Toney stayed near the ropes and continued to counter. With less than 30 seconds in the fight, he finally landed the money shot, a left hook to the body that caused Jirov to drop his hands. The combo that followed led to the knockdown and signature on Toney’s thrilling win.
