Somehow, this one doesn't seem to have been done before. How does it go? (12- or 15-round fight)
sharkey edges him with more power shots in close fight
Nothing to fear Sharkey in 7
Byrd and it really would not be close.
Byrd was tricky, he could beat Sharkey especially if Jack had an off-night.
50-50 fight to me. Sharkey would probably pressure him, as he wouldn't have to fear about Byrd's power.
Could see it going either way really.
Both are spoilers with lots of good wins.
I would favor Sharkey slightly.
Wouldnt that be Byrd's smallest opponent at heavy by far? Byrd may not have the punch to rock the behemoths he was used to fighting, but his punch might be damaging for Jack.
did Sharkey EVER fight a southpaw? Byrd probably has every physical advantage, then it's probable that he would be the only southpaw Sharkey had ever been in the ring with, it would likely be a mismatch.
No, Byrd faced guys like:
Arthur Williams (6'2, 203 lbs) - didn't stop him
Uriah Grant (6'1.5, 200 lbs) - didn't stop him
David Washington (6'1, 205 lbs) - TKO in 10th round
to name a few.
That's interesting question, I'd like to see the answer for that.
I didn't know that shorter reach is physical advantage.
Byrd stops him in 8. Leagues more talented and skilled. A one sided embarrassment.
Aren't you tired of constant trolling?
I'm tired of denying what my eyes, eyes that have watched 4 decades of boxing, participated in a handful of years, tell me.
This is what I see. Byrd clowning and abusing Sharkey. Too fast, too skilled, too slick, fought far more effective opponents in a head to head sense. Sharkey doesn't bring a thing that Byrd didn't see in the ring. The contrary can not be said.
I can troll with the best, but this isn't a troll.
Are you for real?
Sharkey fought some of the most dangerous punchers in history.
Chris Byrd is not going to look like a formidable puncher to him!
So you truly believe that Byrd would stop Sharkey? Not clown, or school - but stop?
