TONEY/RAHMAN: NOT EXACTLY A CLASSIC
The state of boxing’s heavyweight division, it can be argued, has never been lower. Photos are out from this week’s James Toney/Hasim Rahman debacle. The fight was one of the few broadcast on free television (FoxSports Net.)
That fight represents everything that’s wrong with the current state of boxing. Toney (a fighter nobody cares about anymore) picked up a controversial win when he accidentally headbutted Rahman and was awarded the decision.
The fact that a fight of such poor quality is probably the most high-profile match shown on free tv ANYWHERE is a joke. Things are so bad at the heavyweight division that walking tomato can Johnny Ruiz may actually soon receive a mandatory title shot.

WASHED UP “WINNER” JAMES TONEY
