James Toney offers to be the first man to welcome “Kimbo Slice” to the world of boxing

August 30, 2010 All MMA News, UFC  Comments 

Former UFC heavyweight, James Toney seems to have targeted his pound of MMA flesh now that he’s returned to the boxing world with his tail between his legs, telling Gary Shaw that he’s more than willing to welcome “Kimbo Slice” to the ring.

Speaking via FightHype.com, Toney said:

“Wake yo ass up. I heard Gary Shaw was talking shit about me. Tell Gary Shaw I’m down to fight Danny Green or welcome Kimbo to boxing.”

“It would have been like taking candy from a baby for me to fight him [Kimbo Slice] with 4 ounce gloves on. But now, since his promoter wants to talk shit about me, I will gladly welcome him into boxing. I fought a MMA legend in my first MMA bout, so now he can fight a legend in his first pro boxing bout. Furthermore, he is advising Danny Green and I’ve always wanted to see what he can do without the headgear on because I damn near killed him with it on.”

Toney is coming off a first round submission loss to UFC legend, Randy Couture this past weekend in Boston, Massachusetts and has challenged him to a rematch in the boxing ring. “The Natural” has since turned the offer, but it appears Toney has found a different way of attempting to prove his point.

Buying Supplements for MMA Training and Hardcore Workouts
Many people ask what type of supplements they should use for MMA training and hardcore workouts. With each person and training program the supplements will vary.  Anyone exerting enormous amounts of energy with their training needs to have a proper diet, lots of rest and quality supplementation. Some of the supplement staples for MMA and hardcore workouts will include Creatine, Whey Protein, BCAAs (Branched Chain Amino Acids), L Carnitine, Beta Alanine and Glutamine.  You may also need extra pre-workout energy and strength with Ephedrine/Ephedra and Prohormones.  As well you will need to replenish nutrients with Multivitamins, Super Greens, Fish Oil and Joint Support Supplements. Make sure to research what the requirements are for your specific training program, and do as much research as possible on each supplement you are taking. Buy supplements at a trusted source - one company we recommend for quality products and service is CenturySupplements.com.  They have quick delivery to the UK and a wide selection. They have been around for along time and have had great reviews from our customers.
