a punch is a punch and a puncher can take out any man...I seen Chris handle Tua with ease and also stayed in with Vitali and he was supposed to the little guys with ease but there are other factors and the 190lbers from the 50's could crack
I agree that the size of guys has changed and the 190lbers from the 1950's would now weight 240lbs but never seen Byrd embarrassed like this
Ridiculous. When a fighter drops 35 pounds at nearly 38 to a weight he hasn't fought at for 15 years, that's what happens - their punch resistance goes out the window.
