    James Toney vs Sam Peter Showtime sat. night!

    A big ass time heavyweight fight that has been getting an incredible amount of hype. I haven't seen a heavy weight fight get this much publicity in quite a while. Even real boxing fans, who hate the heavyweight division nowadays, are excited for this fight.

    Toney (69-4-3) vs Peter (26-1, 22 KO's)



    Just as a summary though, Sam Peter is a true puncher. Dude has Tyson power. He's looking to KO a James Toney that has never been KO'd in 77 fights. Peter's only loss is to Wlad Klitcho whom he knocked down 3 times but still lost a unanimous decision. Toney is a tremendous Boxer with solid power and the best defense in the HW division. Toney, a former middleweight, is a HOF'r but has been out of shape for his past few fights. For this fight he weighed in at 233, which is better than his 3 previous weigh ins.



    I could do my usual page of prefight hype but its 10am and at school I'm a lot more busy than usual, therefore, I'll let some links do the talking.

    It's not even a PPV fight, anyone with Showtime can see it which is great.


    So who ya got?

    I'm going Toney in a UD . I'm rooting for a KO from either fighter though. I like Toney, and I like Peter. If I had to pick one I'd rather win I'd go Peter though because he could show Saturday night that he is the real future of the HW division. He's actually exciting to watch too, he's not like watching a glass chin jabber like Wlad.

    welp, peter won by split decision. my buddy called me who watched the fight and said Toney got robbed. Poor judging is by far the worst part of boxing.
    i heard it wasnt a robbery. heard it was a very close fight that easily could have gone either way. Also heard that the score margain of 116-111 for peter was way too wide.

    Peter SHOULD win.

    But Toney is much smarter and has enough power to pull this out.

    Toney KO's Peter in the 7th.

    I think Peter will win. Although i thought he was gonna take the Klitchsko fight too. I only have HBO i wish i had showtime.

    Anyone gonna do a round by round?

    I'm at school and due to various reasons I'm not going to be able to watch it. They may track it round by round on espn.com but I'm not getting my hopes up.

    I'd love it if someone did a round by round.

    Whoever wins this fight will without question get a championship match unless it's an all time epic battle that needs a rematch. This fight has been getting a ton of hype!
