Roy Jones W 12 James Toney

November 18, 1994

With Andre Ward and Carl Froch meeting on Dec. 17 in the final of the Super Six super middleweight tournament, Showtime boxing analyst Steve Farhood looks back at the most significant 168-pound title bouts in history.

Jones retains IBF title. Those who insist Jones ducked the best available opposition conveniently choose to forget this fight. Toney, 44-0-2, is ranked second pound-for-pound, Jones, 26-0, seventh. Toney drains himself making weight, rehydrates until he is a bag of water, and performs accordingly. Jones scores a knockdown in round three en route to a clear-cut decision win.
