James Toney stopped Evander Holyfield in the ninth round of their heavyweight bout on Saturday, possibly signalling the end of the 40-year-old former undisputed world champion's career. Toney had dominated the contest from start of the second round and was clearing leading on all three judges' cards when the bout was stopped. After being hurt several times, Holyfield was finally knocked down by the flurry of blows midway through the ninth round, prompting his trainer Don Turner to ask the referee to halt the fight.
