JAMES TONEY: "HE CREATED A WAY OUT...BERNARD SCAMMED THE PUBLIC AGAIN"

JAMES TONEY:

"Roy Jones said it best, Bernard is a bottom feeder. He didn't want anything to do with Dawson until Dawson showed mental weakness in a few fights. He thought he was going to get a timid and mentally weak fighter and Chad wasn't going nowhere...Bernard scammed the public again. He tried to do it in the Roy Jones rematch and the ref wasn't having it. He did it again tonight. I feel sorry for the fans who bought that...Bernard Hopkins just did the same thing Victor Ortiz did against Floyd. Maybe it's something they are teaching over there at Golden Boy. He created a way out...The only thing that would piss Bernard off is if they hold his purse, and they should until a doctor says he had a major injury and he couldn't continue. Other than that, he just robbed a ton of fans with no gun," stated future Hall of Famer James "Lights Out" Toney, who immediately contacted FightHype.com shortly after the bizarre ending to Hopkins vs. Dawson. As you can tell, Toney was extremely critical of Hopkins. You don't want to miss what else he had to say. Check it out!

PC: Damn, Ron Frazier just texted me, "I would love to hear what James Toney has to say," and you call me.

JT: Man, I couldn't wait for my phone to charge so I could call you. Put this out there, Bernard Hopkins is a bitch. He didn't look for a way out, he created a way out by throwing one right hand and then charging in like a ram and Chad Dawson got him up off of him. Bernard has no jab no more. He throws one right hand and ties you up. Dawson was just young and strong and Bernard couldn't bully him. People need to stop saying that dude is old school, for real.

PC: I gotta play devil's advocate here. What would you say to the people that say Hopkins had no reason to try to get out of the fight, because neither guy had really landed that shot that would make a fighter want out.

JT: He didn't have to get hit with a shot. It was bothering Bernard how Chad was marching forward. Roy Jones said it best, Bernard is a bottom feeder. He didn't want anything to do with Dawson until Dawson showed mental weakness in a few fights. He thought he was going to get a timid and mentally weak fighter and Chad wasn't going nowhere, so like I said, Bernard created a way out.

PC: What was your initial reaction when you saw him go down?

JT: He's not gonna get up. How the fuck you hurt your shoulder when your ass hit the canvas first and then he rolled over to his elbow? Bernard scammed the public again. He tried to do it in the Roy Jones rematch and the ref wasn't having it. He did it again tonight. I feel sorry for the fans who bought that shit. That just shows how bad of a fighter Pascal is, if you want me to be honest. But when he went down, I knew he wasn't getting up. If this is the best he can do to try to earn a dollar, he should hang it up, man. I truly feel sorry for the fans. Chad had every right to be pissed off.

PC: Man, I don't even know what else to ask you my man. Is there anything else you want to say?

JT: Bernard Hopkins just did the same thing Victor Ortiz did against Floyd. Maybe it's something they are teaching over there at Golden Boy. He created a way out. No true old school fighter would do no shit like that. Then Max Kellerman saying that wasn't a boxing move; I fight with my shoulders, so how the fuck wasn't that a boxing move? Come on, man. Boxers, we gotta go back to acting like boxers. Nah, fuck that, we gotta go back to acting like prize fighters. We give these motherfuckers in MMA something to talk about when you can't even compare the two sports. Then Kellerman said his shoulders looked different. Man, that motherfucker's shoulders looked exactly the same. His shit was probably swollen from all that ice they packed on it. The only thing that would piss Bernard off is if they hold his purse, and they should until a doctor says he had a major injury and he couldn't continue. Other than that, he just robbed a ton of fans with no gun! In closing, Bernard Hopkins is a bitch!
