This is seriously funny. Thanks for bringing it to my attention G.
There is legitimate debate as to whether or not Couture has been gifted title shots...but he's won the title 6 times. Whether the shot was a gift or not, the win was all him.
As for Toney being a better athlete. He's done very little of any significance in Boxing in the past several years. He's shown little actual ability as an athlete outside of proper Boxing technique, and has shown a very small gas tank. Couture was the Heavyweight Champion two years ago. The way I see it, being a champion makes you a superior athlete than beating no one of significance, at least thats how my book reads!
