    A heavy spar with a prospect will put it to bed, he’ll be hurt

    Not good enough at LHW 12 years ago - it doesnt look good for him. He must have bills to pay

    I really hope he doesn't and was half joking about this. To come back, drop to middle at his age and face a killer like GGG is a very bad idea.
    Facing off against Tyson in a exh type thing is the best way to go imo. He'd probably get a win over Tyson now!

    It's not natural for a 50 year old man to look like that.

    Chris is either broke and desperate for a payday or having a mental health episode.

    Most definitely mental health.

    Unfortunately, I think he will easily find a state that lets him fight.
    Fortunately, I think no decent promoter will pick him up. Meaning there wont be any real money behind getting him a good opponent. So I am hopeful that if he does fight, it will be against someone worthless who isn´t really able to hurt him badly.

    Look at him on the heavy bag and tell me how he beats Tyson.

    He achieved a lot at heavyweight and probably made more money than if he stuck it out at middle.

    Chris had some serious health issues not too long ago. It is good to see him back from all this down time, exercising physically and being in good spirit. mentally.

    I still think it would have been interesting to see him fight at light heavyweight against the likes of Roy Jones and James Toney. He had a style that worked very well at heavyweight though!

    I never thought of it but Byrd vs. DLH actually makes sense. If both want to make a comeback they should fight each other in the masters!
