Toney Suffers First Career Defeat

Vic Toney suffered the first defeat of his professional career as 6'6" Sebastian Fundora used his reach to keep Toney at distance for most of their middleweight belt held at The Cannery in northern Las Vegas on Tuesday night.

The 19-year-old Fundora improved to 5-0 in his young professional career as Toney see's his record fall to 5-1.

Toney, who was coming off of a 17-month layoff, had troubles stringing any punches together against the much taller Fundora.

Using his height and surprisingly solid footwork, Fundora was able to stick his jab into the face of Toney who saw his left eye swell in the third-round and intensify in during the fourth-round.

Fundora continued to target the left eye but Toney had his best round in the 5th as he was able to string some combinations together on Fundora.

Despite continuing to land some solid blows on Fundora in the sixth round as well, Toney found himself on the short end of all three of the judge's scorecards.

Toney, who graduated from Youngstown's Chaney High School but now lives and trains in Las Vegas, was fighting for the first time in his new hometown.
