As reported prior by boxen247.com on the 14th September, former heavyweight champ Chris Byrd at age is 50 to make comeback at middleweight.
“I’m going to win a world title, definitely” said Byrd on his Twitter account.
The planned comeback is not an exhibition.
“Nobody wanted to fight me at middleweight, so I ate my weight up to heavyweight, And I paid for it. I went through 11 years of suffering. A few years ago, I couldn’t even move my feet apart. The pain in my left leg was so bad that some days I just wanted to cut the whole thing off. I had to make drastic changes and choices in life to get where I am today.” “I really want to show people that it’s never too late to accomplish your goals, and live out your dreams. My reflexes are razor sharp, my strength is phenomenal, and I’m more focused than I’ve been. I feel I’m ready to make a return to the ring, and with the help and guidance of Split-T Boxing, I hope to make it a reality.”
Byrd had dropped down from heavyweight at the tale end of his career with not so good results. This will be even further and at an advanced age.
