It looks like James Toney is finally starting to take his career seriously again. As seen in the photos above, Toney has dropped a considerable amount of weight since he fought Randy Couture at UFC 118 last year. Toney told that he’s all the way down to 213 lbs. after his wife and dad convinced him to take his career seriously again. Interestingly, the 8Count story and an interview he did with a couple weeks ago only made mention of potential boxing matches, not the proposed fight with Ken Shamrock that still doesn’t have a definitive date or location.
