I just received this from J Russell Peltz

Tony Thornton passed away last night--check it out. He was in a motorcycle accident a few weeks ago and a bus slammed him into a concrete wall. He had his helmet on but it was not buckled. He was taken to Cooper Hospital in NJ and Ed Derian told me he passed away last night.

Sad news only 49. He gave a peak Chris Eubank a tough fight I remember watching it.

The Punching Postman RIP.

No way, and in an article on the zone just today, relating to Toney, he is mentioned as having the best chin. Freaky and sad.
