I could dissect every comment and describe how foolish he sounds, but there is no point, right?

This is a purely biased opinion. I love how he did a complete 180. He starts talking about how MMA doesn't require skill, but then he makes excuses as to why he is scared to fight in an MMA fight.

I think we shouldn't pay attention to every person who gives a personal opinion about MMA.
Especially if that person has nothing in common with this sport. And "this Omar" fits perfectly in this profile.
Toney wasn't about MMA vs Boxing. For him...being a boxer passed his prime, with little possibilities to reach the top of the rankings in boxing again, this fight against Randy was a chance to promote himself, start some buzz arround him and make some easy money. He showed absolutely nothing in this fight and still he cashed in. Plus. he was the center of attention wherever he went in the last months. Mission accomplished.

Omar Henry, being this, almost annonymus boxer at this point in his career, can follow Toney's example and try to make a name for himself by talking about atuff he doesn't understand.
And i have a feeling other boxers will do the same.
Boxing is going down these days. MMA is rising.

It's better not to pay attention to everyone who starts talking. If someone has something to prove, they should do it in the ring/octagon.

BELIEVE!
