Perhaps Lois would be ahead on the cards but sustain some kind of injury, forcing Joe to withdraw (quit).

Yeah, that's bullshit. Byrd was a poor man's Jimmy Young (OMG, here comes BE). Young, in case somebody got lucky and got something in on him, could take a punch very well, This can not, I said can not, be said about Byrd.

...an "A" for honesty for you Garrus. I feel the same way. Sometimes I know i should elaborate on a controversial opinion, and I end up going "ah, it's because I said so", or "it's my opinion, dammit"!

Louis had a better left hook than Wlad and a faster jab and right hand, he could also box patiently from a distance and had just as much power as well as better timing. He's really only lacking in physical dimensions compared to Wlad, and even then he's still taller with a longer reach compared to Byrd.

The more I think about this the more I see Louis knocking him the **** out.
I agree with this handsome, refined fellow.

Of course he had a faster jab and right hand he was a very small man in comparison to Wlad no way on earth he even remotely has as much power. In his day sure but it's the usually nostalgia rubbish to compare and modern super heavy with awesome power a guy with awesome power from the 1940s who weighed 50 odd pounds less is madness.
