After taking off his boxing gloves not too long ago and entering the sport of mixed martial arts, it looks to be pretty clear that James ‘Lights Out’ Toney just isn’t fit for the fight sport. At least that’s what his long-time boxing coach and friend Freddie Roach told us.
From Freddie Roach:
“I told James to quit after the second Sam Peter fight. He got hit big shots he never used to get hit with before and it was big heavyweights landing the shots. It’s not just the slurring of his speech. James got pissed off at me, told me to go buck myself but I still consider him my friend. Those shots have taken a toll and I know from experience.”
