PS. did you make the Sunday Junkie on mmajunkie.com?
Nope? Sorry haven't read up on Junkie yet. It's just how I feel about the situation overall. Its unfair to me that a master of one aspect of the sport is viewed differently as a master of a different aspect. It just seems ridiculous in my opinion. Both individuals are in the same situation but we choose to view one in a much better way then the other.
But don't get me wrong, I do completly agree with the point you make. Toney is 41 and is most likely going to get humiliated haha. But do you see what I'm saying? I gurantee you that if a younger boxer was coming into the game everyone would be saying the same thing.
"Oh he'll just get taken down and subbed, he has no chance!"
