James Toney will defend his International Boxing Federation middleweight championship for the first time today at the Las Vegas Hilton Hotel. Toney was a 17-1 underdog May 10 when he knocked out champion Michael Nunn in a baseball park at Davenport, Iowa.

But Saturday afternoon, at the Las Vegas Hilton, a young Long Beach middleweight named Reggie Johnson will appear in a championship bout for $60,000, hoping that a victory over James Toney will propel him to paydays that may not be on a level with Tyson's, but at least will carry an extra digit.
