He is walking around at 180 and plans on fighting his next fight at lightheavyweight. Your thoughts?

Honestly I have no idea. A heavyweight moving down isnt something you see everyday. When someones moving up you wonder if the handspeed is gonna be there and how far he can carry his power. When someones moving down like him I dont know what to expect

Well the only thing holding him back in HW was how small he was.

The dude has some skills tho and his chin is AMAZING.

Byrd should of moved down a couple of years ago. At this stage in his career, i don't think he'll make much noise.

About time. I guess he finally realized that HW is to big for him. And he'll never beat Klitchko so therefor he'll never be HW champ again.

exactly. if anything byrd should've made this move years ago, but the money he was making fighting heavys was too good. the 168 and 175 division has plenty of names byrd can make some money against, but i really don't think byrd has much left.

If I was him I would ahve tried to fight a few cruiser weight bouts to see if that fit before I stepped all the way down to LH. Then again we will ahve to see what happens.. It would be cool to see him beat the piss out of Tarver.

I agree. I think Byrd is pretty much shot. It's a desperation move that he hopes will revive his career. I don't see it working

at best, the move down in weight might allow byrd to be more competitive being he may actually be able to hurt his opponent. i don't see it happening, but i'm trying to optimistic;)

Yeah if Byrd does not lose his chin in trying to move down there is no chance of him being knocked out. Ive seen him take some BRUTAL shots my man twice his sizde and ate them.

Haha well i doubt anyon wouldave taken that punch but you can see in his fights against both Wlad and Vitali and against Golota that this guys can take a haymaker to the head.
