About James Toney
  • James Nathaniel Toney (born August 24, 1968) is an American former professional boxer who competed from 1988 to 2017.
  • Nicknamed "Lights Out", he held multiple world championships in three weight classes, including the IBF and lineal middleweight titles, IBF super middleweight title, and the IBF cruiserweight title.
  • Toney also challenged twice for a world heavyweight title, and was victorious the first time, but was later stripped due to a failed drug test.
  • He competed in sixteen world title bouts, and defeated ten current or former world champions during his career.
  • Stylistically a defensive boxer, Toney utilized the shoulder roll technique taught to him by veteran trainer Bill Miller, who had once trained heavyweight champion Ezzard Charles.
  • Toney was an exceptional counterpuncher and inside fighter, who often preferred to fight off the ropes.
  • He possessed fast hand speed and respectable punching power throughout his career and is also noted for his toughness, having never lost any of his 92 professional bouts via stoppage. In 1991 and 2003, Toney was voted Fighter of the Year by The Ring magazine and the Boxing Writers Association of America.
  • In 2011, The Ring magazine ranked him as tenth on their list of the "10 best middleweight title holders of the last 50 years." He has also made a one-time appearance in mixed martial arts, losing to Randy Couture at UFC 118.
  • In 2001, Toney played the role of Joe Frazier in the movie Ali alongside Will Smith.
