James Toney weighed what?

29.04.05 - By Jim Amato: I was so sure that James Toney was going to defeat John Ruiz when this bout was signed. I was SHOCKED to see that Toney weighed in a whopping 233 pounds. Holy S___ !!! To me, movement was part of the key in Toney's plan to outbox Ruiz. However, now that he is OVER 70 pounds from his initial championship weight, what will Toney really bring to the table? It may be an extremely boring fight.. Did Toney underestimate Ruiz? That could be a grave mistake for Toney. John's a plodder but he's gamer. Two writers that I have the utmost respect for , Tom Donelson and Frank Lotierzo picked Ruiz to win. Definite food for thought.. I still have to go with my gut feeling. Toney by decision or late KO.
