Hopefully a blue can help me out here, I saw this video posted on the UG a few days ago and thought that people over here might be able to appreciate it a little bit more.

Nice find.

Toney had a lot of cleverness and variety to his game, even as early as 1990. And the power in McClellan's right hand was evident.

Toney was a fantastic fighter. Would have liked to see him at 100% against Roy. Also would have loved to see him fight Benn , Eubank, Watson and Collins.

Toney at 168 was one of the greatest fighters to put on a pair of gloves and it's a shame he will never receive the recognition he deserves.

I agree, one of my faviurite fighters. The Roy fight really damaged his rep

Knowledgable fans know he is an all time great and his place in history. 15 years after having his own video game he was still a champion. Amazing.

Regarding the video itself, it is interesting to see how Toney and McClellan matched with each other at that stage of their respective careers, but it would have been far more interesting to see how they would have matched up 3 or 4 years down the road. At the time that that sparring session took place, Toney was about a year and a half away from winning the title from Michael Nunn. By comparison, McClellan was three years away from taking the title from my boy, Julian Jackson.
