Vitor Befort Asks Dana White For Permission To Box James Toney (Update)

James Toney always said there weren’t any mixed martial artists willing to box him. And while technically he was right — it’s not like there was any reason for someone to seek out a boxing match with Toney — he’s not anymore. Vitor Belfort wants to get in a boxing ring with Toney, and he recently took to Twitter to ask Dana White for permission.

Dana let me fight James Toney in a six round boxing match. I think I can catch him with my speed. Dana, it will be the first boxing match in the UFC. I promise he will feel my power and we will show the world the a UFC fighter can do better.

I’d say there’s about a zero to zilch chance of Dana White letting Vitor box Toney, but if he did, does anyone think Vitor Belfort’s notorious fast hands would be enough to beat a boxing legend like James Toney at his own game?

Update: For what it’s worth, James Toney has already accepted Vitor Belfort’s challenge.

“Tell Vitor Belfort let’s make it happen. I like that because he ain’t no scared little bitch. He wants to come to my world and I’m more than willing to welcome him into my world.”
