It Is Time For James Toney To Hang Them Up

Now that James Toney has suffered a definitive loss to Lucas Browne this past Saturday night, will he finally realize that it is time to hang up the gloves and find something else to do in life?

Toney had a great career, made waves in the world of boxing, and has seen many a great nights. Unfortunately, time has a tendency to make people slower, weaker, and much less energetic than they may have been earlier in their lives. This point in time has arrived for Toney, and his competitive days are clearly over. Sure he can keep looking for fights that earn him moderate paychecks, but by doing that he would unnecessarily be risking his health.

What do you think: is it time for Toney to hang them up and focus on other things in life?

James Toney Fights On, Facing Lucas Browne of Australia

It seems as though James Toney has never been in a position where he had to ponder retirement. Maybe it’s because he simply refuses to accept that hanging up the gloves would be a good thing for him, possibly allowing him the time to pursue other things in life. Another reason could be that Toney fully believes that he could still climb the ladder to the top and earn a few more championship belts.

A more likely scenario is simpler and more probable than any other: it’s that James Toney needs to keep earning money, and since there is nothing else he is good at (at least nothing that we have seen or heard of him doing), fighting is his only way to make a living.

Once again Toney is crossing the ropes on April 28th to face Lucas Browne (15-0-0) of Australia. With an impressive record of 15 wins (with 14 of those by way of K.O.) and 0 losses, and the unimpressive roster that makes up those wins, Toney has a decent chance of coming out the victor, slowly inching his way to a bigger payday.

It is evident that Browne has a decent punch, thus it is not impossible that he could potentially land a bomb on Toney’s chin, sending him to the canvas. As improbable as this sounds, James Toney is not the same fighter that danced around the ring decades ago, and has visibly aged, showing clear signs of diminished attributes.

James Toney was a tremendous fighter in his peak years, and is already a legend as far as boxing is concerned. Unfortunately he is mixing his great years with constant losses and lackluster performances, fogging up the exciting years of his career.
