Roy Jones Jr. (26-0, 23 KOs)
vs. James Toney (44-0-2, 30 KOs)
Nov. 18, 1994, MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nev.
The unbeaten, 26-year-old James "Lights Out" Toney had become a transcendental figure in the middleweight and super middleweight divisions, having already beaten Mike McCallum, Michael Nunn, Reggie Johnson, Merqui Sosa and Iran Barkley. Jones, just 25, was fresh off a second-round TKO of Thomas Tate and saw this as his coming-out party. This classic showdown between two great, undefeated fighters was for Toney's IBF crown. Neither fighter believed he could lose. One of them was wrong.
