Bryd wouldn't have lasted another 5 rds in there!
Aye, Tua was putting up performances that Peter never proved capable of and Byrd, while he probably improved a little bit rebounding from the loss was rarely ever hurting like that. Ike may get overblown a bit now but he was a proven powerhouse of a contender in a very good era off the Byrd and Tua matches.
