Triple G today vs Middleweight James Toney

How does this play out and why?

Definitely going to a decision and GGG will keep moving forward and throwing punches and keep getting hit cleanly while doing so.

Best case: looks like Jirov vs Toney
Worst case: looks like Ruiz vs Toney

agreed. I like GGG but Toney's head movement and defense are too much for him.

Toney takes this too IMO. Defense with constant counters as well as his style always worked best when they brought the aggression to him. Although GGG is a smart fighter he doesn't just throw bombs. He varies the timing speed and power on punches to upset your rhythm as well as your defense and offense. He's not a stupid fighter. But I'd give the edge to Toney.

Prime James Toney is ducking Golovkin.




Way too early to tell how Golovkin would do against Toney. Right now you'd have to pick Toney because Toney fought guys similar to Golovkin. There's no one on Golovkins record who comes close to the skill Toney brought to the ring.

Toney as of now. Agreed with Seano, we have to wait until he fights a little more.

I am a huge Gennady fan and follower but he's still got a lot to prove.

I absolutely love GGG but he would get beat badly against prime Toney.

A focused Toney would make todays GGG look silly

James humiliates him.
