Ken Shamrock vs. James Toney Delayed Until 2012, Could Be Scrapped Completely

The battle between boxing champion, James Toney and former UFC superfight champion, Ken Shamrock has been delayed until next year and may be off completely.

This was posted on Toney’s official site over a week ago:

“After training extremely hard in preparation, Toney was informed not long ago that his unified rules bout with MMA hall-of-famer Ken Shamrock would be delayed until early part of 2012. Already in terrific shape and weighing near the cruiserweight limit of 200lbs. Toney has decided to instead re-focus on his boxing career and target the #1 cruiserweight contender Denis Ledbedev, who recently knocked out one of his old-time rivals, Roy Jones Jr.”

There has been no comment from Shamrock or additional comments from Toney regarding when the bout could take place or even what caused it to be delayed. The two were set to fight on September 23rd in El Paso, TX, a press conference followed where the two had to be separated.
