I felt really bad for Byrd. I didn't follow his career a lot, but I did see a few of his fights and knew of his accomplishments.
I agree with Dork, when he got knocked down in the first round, I knew it was all down hill from there. I had a feeling it would be that way before the fight even started. The way he was hoping to make the weight drop be the spark to re-ignite his career, I had a feeling he would be derailed.
I just hated to see him beat in that way with a highlight reel KO. He should retire and hopefully he doesn't take managerial rights away from his wife. He needs to be safe. Another title is not worth permanent damage. But he gets much respect for such a big weight drop and at least trying again.
