Garrus, I understand why you made the thread. But basically, Louis passed his test with boxing cruisers when he knocked out Conn and Walcott who are both better than Byrd to my eye. You have to give him the benefit of the doubt OR provide some deep technical analysis to change minds.

Too much work. But I'll keep it in mind.

I do think Louis will have more trouble with Byrd than he did with Walcott, but a Prime Louis is one scary mother****er to be in the ring with.

Louis gets a SD.

I dont think he gets Byrd to see la la land.

You feeling better DGM?

The other thing I would say - couple of people picking Byrd in this thread (!). Is that really the pick you would make? Louis tearing the division apart, knocking everybody out, and this spoiler comes along and he looks difficult, and you guys would pick Byrd? I'm not that good or that brave.

Im a supporter of Byrds H2H ability....in my opinion he is underrated sometimes, but of course Louis at his best would beat him with ease....
