James Toney follows in the footsteps of Roy Jones Jr. by climbing to the heavyweight division to capture a piece of the title from WBA Champion John Ruiz. Toney beats Ruiz to the punch most of the night and scores a controversial knockdown when stepping on Ruiz's foot and knocking him down into the ropes in the seventh round. The judges award Toney a unanimous decision, making him the second former middleweight to beat Ruiz for the belt.

I believe this decision was later changed to a no contest.

It was. Toney tested positive and Ruiz was reinstated as champion.
