Following his Hall of Fame worthy career at heavyweight, which included wins over Vitali Klitschko, Evander Holyfield, and David Tua, Byrd (47-5, 22 KOs) suffered from severe neuropathy and chronic pain from fighting far above his natural weight.

"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," said Byrd.

"We need to get past Vazquez, he's our main focus. We're not looking past Saturday. If we can get past him, and we're confident that we can, then we'll start looking at those other big names. I think I'll put an even better performance on behind closed doors with no pressure on my shoulders. When I first saw him at the first press conference, I thought he looked massive. Now he looks quite skinny, quite frail, to be fair, but we'll see on Saturday night what he comes to bring. We know that we'll bring our A-game.

Publicist Ricardo Jimenez Passes
 
By William Trillo
It came as sudden and shocking news that long time publicist Ricardo Jimenez had passed s away. Jimenez who spent years with Top Rank was truly one of boxings best friends. He will be greatly missed. Jimenez was instrumental with working with Latino fighters in his years. We could always count on Ricardo to help set up and interpret interviews from the likes of Erik Morales to Miguel Cotto and so many more. His tireless efforts were greatly appreciated in the community. We all will miss his charm and professionalism. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family. Rest in peace good friend.

If you are looking for a fighter who would fail every test The Marques of Queensbury has to offer, then you need look no further than featherweight Emanuel Navarrete (32-1, 27 KO’s). On the contrary, if you seek a fighter with an extensive and pedigreed amateur career, take a look at Ruben Villa (18-1, 5 KO’s). Now throw everything you know out with yesterday’s news. That’s right the awkward Navarrete manhandled Villa, dropped him twice and left The Bubble with the vacant World Boxing Organization World Feather Title in his possession.
