Toney also says that this is a fight between two heavyweight champions of the world. Well, Couture is a three-time UFC heavyweight champion who last held the belt in 2008. Toney is a zero-time heavyweight titlist in boxing outside of fringe titles with no status and that time he did win the WBA belt from John Ruiz, but had to give it up when he tested positive for steroids.
James Toney is James Toney, though. He's a talker, and Toney's doing some talking.
