More:



The fourth defense of James Toney's IBF Middleweight Championship is another filled with controversy as he struggles mightily with the game Dave Tiberi. Tiberi loses a point for a low blow in the sixth round and ultimately an unpopular split decision. After losing the fight, Tiberi retires from boxing despite an investigation being launched into the decision, which uncovers that the judges scoring the bout for Toney are not even licensed in the state of New Jersey.

Toney perseveres.

I see everybody here except Corey thought Toney lost too, I beg to differ.

rorschach's picture

Toney is absolutely right in his post fight interview, he was blocking most of Tiberi's shots with his arms and shoulders. If that was Mayweather they would say what a masterful defensive performance. It wasn't until years later that even boxing people would give Toney credit or his perfect shell//shoulder roll defense. That's why he had so many SD wins early during his first world title reign.

Left Eye's picture

Toney won by dint of poor low blow call. The referee deducted a point without previously warinng Tiberi and it didn't look like he hit Toney low at that time (though he got away with two big ones in the 12th).

Without that, it would have been a draw.

Toney didn't lose in any case in my view.
