Im shocked that so many people picked toney. Toney is a great boxer, far better than anyone cc has faced and thats saying a lot for cc coming from k1, but without knowledge of kickboxing, he would get killed now, and a prime k1 cc vs. a prime toney, cc would deliver a more brutal head kick ko than he ever has. picture a guy wanting to stand with him, with doesnt know shit about kicks ( im not including the people who assume in this fight that toney knows how to defend against it, that is foolish, if he does as he says, not really worrying about the other aspects of fighting, cc would kill him.)


    idc who put the top boxers against the top kickboxers and the boxers would get ktfo FAST. I do agree with a lot of boxers saying that the striking level in mma is a joke (for the most part, except for standouts like silva, shogun, machida, jds, aldo, rampage, cc, etc.) but as a always say not only is boxing not fighting, it isnt the highest level of striking. In the interviews following mercers short fight with remy he said he didnt want anything to do with kickboxing and was shocked how quickly a top boxer like himself would get overwhelmed. btw mercer is a boxer who is learning the other aspects of mma and if you listen to his interviews is really educated on what mma is and i wish him the best of luck, in boxing you cant find a tougher guy than mercer having wars with holyfield, lewis, holmes, etc.
    Why not have a boxer, go to mma and than try to use his footwork and boxing style and see how sloppy they would become as well due to the fact that you have to worry about everything thus there is no pure boxing which is what makes boxing look professional and precise becuase they dont worry about anything else. Boxers just box with one another thus they can position themselves to box with great form simply becuase thats all they are doing. Fedor had better hands than Toney, Mark Hunt also. Toney isnt Klitchko or Tyson lol. But im sure in a boxing match the strategic advantage would go to Toney because he actually has experience boxing, Fedor and Hunt would get ktfo in a boxing ring.

    CC got outstruck by JDS and Barry....so I see James out boxing cc
    Thats becuase cro cop no longer is in his prime, thus he has no true heart to fight, he isnt willing anymore. I heard he even thought of committing suicide which proves he isnt at all mentally well. Cro cop has two tools to work with, he can follow up with a punch than a left high kick.

    I think it would take only 2 of those then the high kick. If his legs aren't used to getting a beating it wouldn't take much for him to start guarding the low kick. How funny is it that I keep laughing at the potential idea of seeing Toney getting a kick to the head?

    I know! there must be something wrong with his legs man, he hasn't seemed right since the Gonzaga fight where he landed on it awkwardly.

    The question is if Cro Cop would stand with Toney, or would he just take him down...

    If he stands, he gets ko'd...CC's kickboxing, (sorry to say this, but its kinda true) is non-existing...he only boxes now and it does NOT look impressive, all's he does is get beat to the punch...so he resorts to his wrestling (I know sounds weird, "CC resorts to his wrestling" lol)

    So if he takes Toney down, I see a tko stoppage due to cuts...

    I picked Toney in the poll, but now I regret it because CC would probably not stand with Toney
