BOSTON — The UFC's first trip to Boston played pretty much to script: Fans were boozy, violent, excellent; the sound system blasted House of Pain and Dropkick Murphys; and James Toney's reputation as the fat Fool of boxing remained intact, even if his head did not.
James Toney may get thumped tonight by Randy Couture at UFC 118, but he's already triumphed in the promotional battle in customary fashion — by sounding like a drunk Clubber Lang practicing the dozens inside a dumpster.
Next month at UFC 118, boxer James Toney will take on mixed martial artist Randy Couture, in a bout some are saying will decide which sport is tops. It will decide no such thing.
Former world champion James Toney is fighting a fellow named Samuel Peter next weekend in a title-elimination bout. The winner will be next in line to fight Oleg Maskaev for one of boxing's 342 world heavyweight titles (I think it's the one with the pretty rubies on the belt).
