VIDEO: James Toney arrives in Russia


By @livefight

43-year old James "Lights Out" Toney arrived in Russia for promotional duties ahead of his impending fight against Denis Lebedev on November 4th at the Khodynka Ice Palace in Moscow.

Toney is an 84-fight veteran who has fought from middleweight right up to heavyweight, with 73 wins and 44 knockouts. But Lebedev is the younger man at 32 and is a fearsome puncher.

Many forecast that Toney is simply taking a payday and point to the fact that making the cruiserweight limit will be difficult for a man whom weighed 257lb only a few months ago. But he insists it's a fight he will win and also in style.
