THIS would have been a solid matchup. Both very quick fighters and I think this could have been a very equal matchup, if only they were in the same divisions at the time.
Chris Byrd at the height of his peak was a very difficult fighter to match up with, because of his defensive skills. I would have loved to have seen this.
I,like you,give Byrd a lot of props but Byrd wouldn't have beaten Roy..Byrd's defensive skills were amazing..I'd consider him a master of defense which is something I don't say about many..I also consider Pep and Whitakers masters too(who doesn't)..
Roy would just be throwing too many punches at Byrd and Byrd wouldn't have the power to keep him off..Roy found ways around great defenses..
It'd be a fun fight to watch either way though..I'd be happy no matter who won..
