I agree with you. I think he can definitely beat some HW's, but I don't think he's even interested in any kind of title run. I think he just wants to make some money and move on. I think he is only doing this because he can't get a fight with Vitali Kilitschko.

it all comes down to the ground game. If Penn cant get it to the ground he will get killed if he can Toney is in troubel

What is your point? This is not Japan.

I would be very surprised if Toney came down to 205, and I am not at all interested in the idea of seeing BJ fight at that weight. Hey, don't get me wrong, it would be a big fight that they could market it well, but I just don't see it happening.

See, I don't think it's that cut and dry. That is no doubt what logic would tell us, but there is one thing we know for sure, and that is that YOU NEVER KNOW FOR SURE

Ya know, the more I thought about it... the more I think this would actually be a great fight to see happen. Toney is only 1 inch taller than Penn, and even though there would still be a bit of a size difference, I think it could actually be a very interesting fight.

Still, it would be wrong of the commission to sanction such a fight (not that it has always stopped them in the past).

I guess that's what makes it interesting, eh? You never know 100%...

I don't pretend that "Lights Out" will ever compete for the belt, but he'll fight Kimbo and maybe Chuck (at HW) and the guys that will thump with him. He'll sell a **** load of tickets and maybe convert some boxing purists.
