Recently I had the pleasure of talking to former world heavyweight champion, Chris Byrd. A number of topics were discussed which included, the Manny Pacquiao-Timothy Bradley rematch, the possibility of a Manny Pacquiao-Floyd Mayweather match up, Manny Pacquiao’s tax issues. Also discussed in the interview was the decline in the American heavyweight stocks, the Klitschko’s, Alex Leapai, Lucas Browne and much more. Tune in and listen to what Chris Byrd had to say.


Manny Pacquiao-Timothy Bradley rematch.

Manny Pacquiao-Floyd Mayweather saga.

Manny Pacquiao’s tax problems.

The Klitschko’s.

The reasons behind American heavyweight decline.

Alex Leapai and Lucas Browne.


“The joy from just being in the ring with both of the Klitschko’s, having a victory over one, definitely a highlight in my career.”

“To beat a Klitschko you have to be on top of your game and know how to counteract different styles.”

“Boxing is a hard sport, not only in the ring but also in the training. Your dedication has to be there, I think that big guys do not want to dedicate themselves to becoming really good champions.”

“Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley are both under pressure in this fight.”

“Pacquiao gets knocked out by Marquez, comes back beats Rios, everybody thinks Pacquiao won the first Bradley fight, so there is not as much pressure on him.”

“Everybody thinks that Timothy Bradley lost the first fight, so what’s Bradley going to do different, how is Bradley going to prove he can beat Pacquiao legitimately?”

“Timothy Bradley is going to change up some things to prove that he is the better guy and get a convincing win.”

“Manny Pacquiao still wants to prove he’s the guy, Timothy Bradley wants to prove he belongs, I think the next fight should be with Floyd Mayweather.”

“Floyd Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao would be a great fight for boxing, I know that much.”

“Wladamir Klitschko is being a gentleman by giving everyone a shot at the title.”

“You might end up with belts going back and forth, guys are so hungry because they don’t have to face a Klitschko, they think, ‘hey I can really win that title.’”

It was a pleasure talking with former heavyweight champion, Chris Byrd. I wish him all the success in the future.

    You wish he was right.But Floyd will always have a well thought excuse not to fight Pacquiao….and just because Bradley re-signed with Bob Arum and Top Rank this will not happen too. Sorry Chris but saying that made you look like you got hit way too many times in the ring and the cobwebs are still there. I am joining Floyd-Cott(Not paying or participating in anymore PPV of Floyd) until he fights Pacquiao.

  2. artjd says:

    So, Chris, you think Floyd would have found his balls by that time?????

    not a chance

    I agree with both of the above comments. I have to doubt that Duck/Chicken Mayweather will finally find his missing balls and fight the Pacman. Watch him concoct another set of lies and excuses to justify his avoidance of fighting the Pacman. The excuses will never end and the duck or chicken will forever be a duck and a chicken unless Pacquiao will agree to fight with only his right hand. So I’m afraid I will have to go FLOYDCOTT still and encourage others to do the same to put pressure on Showtime and Fraud Mayweather to give us the fight that the whole world wants. It’s Mayweather-Pacquiao or FLOYDCOTT.

    FLOYDCOTT! The right thing to do.

  7. Glen says:

    Maywether would fight anybody not named Manny Pacquiao.

  8. El_Critika says:

    i don’t think so.

  9. angelina says:

    floydcott forever until he fights pacman.

  11. edel says:

    pacquiao should request for stringent test for mayweather if his balls are still intacked .

  12. You people should not comment bad things about floyd mayweather. You must understand he is sick. He’s inflicted with a disease called PACPHOBIA that’s why it also affected his balls.

  13. Anton Asuncion says:


  14. yeah right!! LOL only if its Bradley, Floyd know he can beat him

  15. i’ve Floycotted his ass ever since Delhoya pleaded with him for a rematch and he sat there like a turd

  16. JJ says:

    I think it truly is the most logical fight for the winner. Floyd Mayweather Jr should want to fight the winner as much as the winner wants to fight him. It’s great business and it’s great for the sport.

    I think manny beats tim decisively this time, he looked just as fast and awesome as ever against rios. Yes rios is a big strong slow guy but who else Beat up rios and made his face look like that? Bradley is awesome as well he could easily win the fight but his lack of power and mannys superior speed and footwork, power will be the difference. Hopefully mayweather finally fights ONE of these 2 fighters sept this year. Bradley deserves a mayweather shot and of course the fight the world wants to see mayweather Vs pacquiao.
