By Anthony Evans: "No more warm-up fights for James Toney," vows the leading heavyweight contender's promoter Dan Goossen.

And perhaps with good reason. After missing out on a major fight with Jameel McCline through injury last winter, Toney returned from torn Achilles' heel on September 23 in California, only to suffer a ripped right bicep in the second round of his points win over Rydell Booker.

Now Goossen says the Evander Holyfield destroyer's next fight will be a major one in the division and, no, no-one climbed onto the ledge of the Goossen Tudor offices contemplating suicide when James suffered his second big injury of 2004.

Goossen said: "We really weren't that worried about the arm once the medical people informed us that it'd only require two months of rehab. We were planning on fighting on HBO in December but, really, the injury has only delayed James for two months. It isn't a major deal in terms of slowing us down.
