James is a classic. That shit is funny no matter what era you're in.

What made James' smacktalk so good was that he always brought it in the ring too, the dude would literally fight anyone. The problem with Mayweather is he only trash talked to overcompensate for his boring-ass style once he went north of 140 pounds and with Tyson as soon as someone stood up to him he crumbled. James on the other hand brought a perfect synchronicity between what he said outside the ring and what he brought within it.

I'll still never forget how much he antagonised Iran Barkley before their fight. Iran literally had the veins popping out of his head and eyeballs during the referee's final instructions and then James just coolly went and beat the shit out of him lol That and his punking of Evander during their fight have to be my favourite fight moments of his.

The funny thing about the Barkley fight is Toney said Barkley really hurt him at one point, but that he (James) stayed in the pocket. He said he always stayed in the pocket when he got hurt, because he didn't want them to know he was hurt.

James Toney was all man.

James always refers to his fight with Barkley as one that defined his career. Michael Nunn too.

Toney. Toney had better wins throughout his career than Mosley.

Prime for prime and p4p who would win?


If you could expand Mosley's 147 frame to 160 (or 168 depending where you think Toney's prime was), who would win a straight up match?

Toney.

His defense, counter punching, and ability to create tough angles would've been the deciding factors. Shane's workrate wouldn't have the same affect on him as it did others earlier in his career. Shane's inability to find a way to crack Winky's shell is more evidence that Toney would've been too complex for him to figure out.
