Default Hopkins to fight Toney at 190 pounds

Hopkins to fight Toney at 190 pounds
By Dan Rafael, USA TODAY
Undisputed middleweight champion Bernard Hopkins will move up 30 pounds to challenge cruiserweight champion James "Lights Out" Toney.
After three weeks of intense negotiations, Toney promoter Dan Goossen and Hopkins promoter Don King reached agreement Tuesday, Goossen told USA TODAY. King was unavailable for comment. HBO Pay-Per View will telecast the August fight, probably from Las Vegas' Mandalay Bay.

Hopkins, 38, will attempt to move from 160 pounds, where he has made a middleweight-record 17 title defenses, to meet 190-pound champ Toney, 34, a former middleweight and super middleweight champ with skills similar to Hopkins'.

Hopkins is expected to receive about $3.5 million, Toney about $2.5 million.

"We just want to get this guy in the ring," said Goossen, whose personal animosity toward Hopkins stems from a short and stormy promotional relationship that ended in a 2000 legal battle.

"You can say all day that you can whoop me, but you still got to do it," Toney said. "But when the bell rings, I'm going to kick his butt. We were both middleweights, and I should have knocked him out in (1993) before I went up to super middleweight."
