OK, we're all tired of Ophra's weight watchers.

Here's a contest that gives the winner major bragging rights.

What's Toney gonna weigh in at?

I think he's gonna play a few games and come in around 246 or so. If, and when they weigh him before the fight, it's gonna be mid 250s.

I'd also be willing to bet he's gonna be at 280lbs 2 weeks after the fight.

My guess is 244 at the weigh in, with his shirt on (I hope)

From FightNews:

Rock 238, Toney 237!
WBC heavyweight champion Hasim Rahman weighed in at a solid 238 lbs today in Altantic City. Challenger James Toney weighed in at a career high 237.

I though Rahman would be lighter. That was his only hope.

Toney could very well knock an exhausted Hasim out in the late rounds . ..

Rahman looks to be a very strong and solid 238 from what I've seen. He's more cut than he's looked in some of his previous fights, despite what the scales say. Even still, the extra muscle mass won't be doing him any favors in the 11th and 12th rounds.

Toney looks as flabby as ever.

Rachman was 270 for the second Tua fight and moved well for twelve rounds. At 238 he's in great shape. He'll win.

Four years ago @ 224lbs he could not get a leg up on an aging Holyfield before he grew another head. The way I see it in short, JT will have to blow this fight for Rahman to win. Rahman has none of the essentials needed to beat JT other than lottery luck & he's already spent that on Lewis. Rahman is a every bit and more the heavyweight myth that is JT and I think it will be proven once again.

Tua was asking to be outboxed in that fight, neither fighter looked impressive.

Just because a guy is solid from a muscular standpoint doesn't mean he's fit for 12 rounds. 238 is too heavy for a 6'2 man.

Look at the 1940s black fighters thread in the old timer section, and the pic of a 6'2, 195 lb Elmer Ray . . . now that man was in shape!

Damn, I was too late. Sam, get ready to defend that title. What a great start to what is sure to become a CBZ tradition.

Could not agree more. In Rahman's case I don't think it matters whether he is 238 or 270, he will not be able to maintain the pace needed to beat Toney unless he's in real shape. At 238 he will be musclebound and slow. He should be no more than 220 imo.

Shawn, I'm always ready to defend!
As for the fight; I think Toney is gonna Rock Rahman's world!
Say what you want about Toney being a blowup middleweight, fat, whatever…he totally out-classes Rahman. I’m not saying it’ll be a cakewalk for Toney but I am saying Rahman’s not in the same league as Toney. I picked Toney to totally dominate Holyfield, (see Boxing Digest Sept. 2003 pg. 20-21) and I’m picking Toney to do the same against Rahman. I can’t break it down the way I did in the Toney-Holyfield fight, (I guess Compubox got hip to people using their stats so they break the punch-stats down and write their own articles.) I’m saying James Toney is a Hall-of-Fame caliber boxer and God willing me and the CBZ message board will be around in about 10 years for me to backup that statement.

Well has Toney weighed in yet and if so, what did he weigh??

The answer is right here in the thread.

Don't know how I missed that. I think I was viewing the thread on predictions for the fight and posted on this thread by mistake. 237lbs at 5ft 9/10.....what a monster. Can't be healthy can it, even though he's a boxer. He's not exactly a role model for young teens trying to stay fit and relatively trim....

Did they announce the ring weights? I don't recall hearing it if they did. Just wondering who may have gained or lost.

They never do day-of weigh-ins for heavies.

Hard to believe, but Toney weighed 196 the day of the Jirov fight, which was just under three years ago.

Sam, looks like you'll be defending your title for the Toney-Rahman rematch.

The did for Ruiz/Jones. Roy gained 6 lbs and Ruiz lost a few. It sent up my red flag. I thought they might do it since Toney's weight was such a big subject.

Ah, you're right. I'd forgotten about that one.

I caught the Rock-Toney replay at 5:30 tonight, and there was no mention of ring weights.
