Toney: “I’m not playing!”

Photo by Chris Cozzone

“I’m not playing,” former boxing champion James “Lights Out” Toney says about his debut in the UFC, Aug. 28 at UFC 118, held at the TD Garden in Boston, against former UFC heavyweight and light-heavyweight Randy “The Natural” Couture. “These guys were afraid to come to my sport, so I’m coming to theirs.”

Toney hosted an informal brunch at MGM’s Wolfgang Puck’s today in Las Vegas to talk about his upcoming fight. “I’m the greatest fighter Couture’s ever fought,” he said. “And if he wants to stand up and fight, he’s gonna have a hell of a headache the next morning.”

The champ is back

UFC 116 is LIVE on PPV TONIGHT!

Ask Brock Lesnar what he missed the most during a nearly one year layoff due to illness, and he fires back with a typically quick retort. “The paychecks.”

What follows next is a deep laugh that probably wasn’t heard too much in the Lesnar household after a bout with what was eventually discovered to be diverticulitis put the baddest man on the MMA planet in a hospital bed and threatened his career. But once he recovered and got back to the business of preparing to defend his heavyweight title, there was a new Brock Lesnar in town . . . click here for more by Thomas Gerbasi, UFC

Court: King wasn’t defamed

The Florida Court of Appeals has affirmed the 2008 decision of a Florida trial court judge who tossed out promoter Don King’s $2.5 billion libel suit against ESPN. The lawsuit said a 2004 biographic piece aired on ESPN unfairly portrayed King “by creating an inference and innuendo that Don King was dishonest and engaged in illegal activities, including physically endangering others in order to succeed in his profession.”

Decision of the District Court of Appeal of Florida, Fourth District: “After reviewing the summary judgment evidence and the arguments of counsel, we conclude that the trial court did not err in granting summary judgment on King’s defamation claim. ESPN did not act recklessly by relying on statements made by [Don] Elbaum and [Jack] Newfield. Moreover, although it exercised editorial discretion by creating a particular theme for its program, there is no evidence that it published the challenged statements with knowledge of their falsity or with any serious doubt as to their truth. Thus, King did not meet his burden of presenting record evidence sufficient to satisfy the trial court that a genuine issue of material fact exists which would allow a jury to find actual malice by clear and convincing evidence.”

HBO dumps Klitschkos

HBO Sports President Ross Greenburg has again ripped the Klitschko brothers. IBF/WBO/IBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (54-3, 48 KOs) and WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko (40-2, 38 KOs) have both have previously fought on the network numerous times and routinely fill huge soccer stadiums when they fight, but Greenburg says there is no longer any interest in them from HBO. “I’m really souring on the heavyweights,” Greenburg was quoted as saying strangely on ESPN’s website, rather than that of his own network. “There doesn’t seem to be any interest in the U.S. and there doesn’t seem to be any heavyweights besides David Haye who would have any juice in challenging the Klitschkos. We’re out of the heavyweight division. We’re not playing in that sandbox right now. It doesn’t make any sense for us. The fights happen over there [in Europe], they’re on tape delay. There is just very little interest in this country.” Greenburg added that HBO definitely will not televise Wladimir Klitschko against unbeaten Teddy Atlas-trained Olympic gold medal winner Alexander Povetkin (19-0, 14 KOs), nor Vitali Klitschko’s next fight unless the opponent is David Haye or Tomacz Adamek. Previously Greenburg had famously stated that the American public can’t tell which brother is which.

The lightweight main event of the evening opened in exciting fashion as both men met in the center of the ring and threw slick straight punches at one another. While Orji stood confidently in the center of the canvas the fleet footed Salka bobbed and weaved his way from corner to corner in search of an opening.
