Chris Byrd ... Underrated?
Anyone else think so? His style didn't make him the most appealing boxer to networks like HBO but he was a natural middleweight going up against some of the hardest hitting, most lethal heavyweights in the world.
Nobody wanted to fight him ... he would make guys look completely silly ... it was hard for anyone to each lay a glove on him. His resume is pretty solid as well and his victory against Vitali was huge. There's a reason why he never fought Byrd again in a rematch and let Wlad take care of him. He also fought a great fight against David Tua.
He was definitely among the top 5 heavyweights of the last decade
