He definitely wasn't in tip-top shape. Normally he gets stronger as the fight progresses while his opponent get worn out from getting countered by his devastating rights and body-head jabs. This was by far not a top shape Toney and he still squeaked out the W. Still could have gone either way imo.
Oquendo didn't deserve shitt; You can't hold all fight and expect to get the W. All Fres did was hold and land on the break. Toney lost a lot of his speed; he would get stopped by either Klitschko. Wlad would just hold and lay on him until Toney gets less mobile and just pummel him.
I like Foreman's fast side to side style, but he doesn't throw any punches and he holds too much. I'm 2 for 2 today in my PL picks.
Toney needs to get in shape...you don't go from looking great and fighting great against Rahman to just looking like garbage the next fight. We use the term "shot" almost at will nowadays. You want to see a fighter who is shot? RJ and DLH...those fighters are shot. Toney is just fat. We saw a slimmer Toney and he looked great against the Rock. Now he got fatter and his performance was soured because of it. But I agree to a certain degree...if toney shows up fat against any of the klitschko brothers then he will get pummeled and a TKO is possible.
