Goossen Tutor Promotions is thrilled to announce that the James Toney vs Rydell Booker bout on September 23 and televised live on FOX Sports Net's Best Damn Sports Period will be fought not only as an IBA title fight, but also as a WBC Continental Americas championship bout, with the winner to become the #1 WBC contender to champion Vitali Klitschko. Toney, The Ring Magazine, USA Today and Boxing Writers Association of America Fighter of The Year for 2003, was elated with the news. "This only gives me more incentive on September 23 to go out there and brutally destroy Booker. Every punch I throw at Booker will be a punch closer to connecting my fists with the Russian Frankenstein." "We are very much looking forward to this event, where James Toney, a highly regarded former three-time world champion, will fight Rydell Booker, a former WBC youth titlist, for this title and the #1 ranking in the WBC,” stated Mauricio Sulaiman, Executive Secretary of the WBC.
