Heavyweight Champ Hasim Rahman Retains Belt over James Toney

Posted by Jeff Chan Categories: Boxing, Championship,

Hasim Rahman defeats James ToneyThis must be the biggest fight in the ho-hum heavyweight division since Lennox Lewis retired in 2004.  The fight was a snooze-fest resulting in Hasim Rahman defeating James Toney and hanged onto the Heavyweight Championship.  During the fight last night in Atlantic City, N.J., there were no knock-downs and it did not appear either fighter was in jeopardy at any point in the fight.  Toney was predicted by most boxing experts to come out victorious despite the fact he came into the fight at a heavy 237 pounds.  The other heavyweight contenders are Chris Byrd, Nicolay Valuev and Lamon Brewster, all whom do not have the box office appeal as the boxers in other weight classes.  The only bright side of the fight was that it was televised on HBO and not on PPV.
