James Toney net worth & biography:
James “Lights Out” Toney (created August 24, 1968) is an American professional fighter. Toney won IBF world titles as a middleweight, super middleweight and cruiser weight. He made nine successful title defenses. His fashion is made up of technique called the shoulder roll, which he reproduced from old school fighters and he could be recognized as among the best defensive fighters of the current era. He maintains he took the drug to treat a shoulder injury from an earlier fight.
Toney stayed among the very most lively fighters in the sport, winning five mark-time fights throughout 1993, then getting the better of Tony “The Striking Postman” Thornton in his 1st title shield in October, via a landslide stages success. In his second defense, Toney defeat the 24–0 Tim Littles by a 4th round KO. In this bout, Toney endured a poor wound which caused the referee and ringside physician to intercede before round 4, enabling him one more round to make an effort to stop the fight. This triumph paved the way because of his fight with Roy Jones, Jr.. The fight was the largest and most anticipated fight of the entire year with Jones and Toney rated highly in the pound-for-pound positions going to the fight. Toney was visualized to win by many specialists as a result of his exceptional degree of competition he had faced up to the stage. Jones won a landslide decision over Toney, an upset at that time, taking Toney apart and briefly flooring Toney for the very first time using a flash knockdown in the 3rd round. (Jones used among his “cockfighting” feigns to entice Toney in, and as Toney mocked Jones, Toney got caught using a leaping left hook.) Subsequent to the fight Toney attributed making the weight for his level operation as well as the lack of his cherished unbeaten record. It had been his last fight in the weight. His next fight after losing his title to Roy Jones found him lose to Montell Griffin at light heavyweight in February 1995. After subsequently winning some fights at light heavyweight, cruiser weight, as well as heavyweight, he again confronted Montell Griffin in December 1996 and once again lost a close decision.
