An amazing fight that has proven to be James Toney's last great performance. The valiant Vassiliy Jirov, a powerful champion prior, was never quite the same after the savage beatdown he endured.

There is a poster for this one under Tarver vs. Montell Griffin if you want to add it here

I could have swore I watched this fight live on Fox Sports Net, what a amazing scrap! Jirov gave everything he had, and Toney turned back the clock one night and gave one last great performance. I remember the announcers thought Toney was behind going into the 12th and said he needed at least a knockdown to have a shot, and Toney came through.

Left Eye's picture

Supreme skill from Toney.

As far as pure boxing ability, Toney is probably the most naturally gifted of all time.
