He is the son of ex-fighter Harold "Honey" Combs, a 2004 inductee into Ohio's Summit County Boxing Hall of Fame Association. Toney was born in Boston and raised in the Georgetowne section of Hyde Park, where he became a local legend as a street-fighting teenager. Toney learned the fundamentals of the Sweet Science at the feet of his father and at the Boston YMCA with trainer Pete Cone. He was a Massachusetts Novice Champion, three-time Open Class Champion, Diamond Belt Champion, and four-time New England Regional Champion in the 165 lb class. In 1992, he was scouted by Terry Norris's handlers to join First Fighters Squadron in Campo, CA.
