At stake is the vacant International Boxing Association title (whose President Dean Chance attended yesterdays media day) and the WBC Continental crown.

Toney admires the IBA belt
"Rydell Booker is in my way to the heavyweight title, and on September 23, I will physically remove him from my path...period," Toney told the media earlier this week.

The winner of the bout also becomes WBC #1 to Vitali Klitschko. "This only gives me more incentive on September 23 to go out there and brutally destroy Booker,” said Toney.

“Every punch I throw at Booker will be a punch closer to connecting my fists with the Russian Frankenstein."

Can anybody shut this guy up?? Over to you Rydell
