(Chris Byrd…another great Chris. Thanks for representing Chris….cd)
Chris Byrd is the IBF Heavy Weight Champion of Boxing.
Byrd defends his crown against DaVarryl Williamson Saturday on SHOWTIME (9:15 p.m. ET/PT, delayed on the west coast). In the co-feature on SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING, James Toney risks his IBA heavyweight belt against DaVarryl Williamson.
“I have always been willing to fight anybody, from No, 15 on up, and that is still the case. I just want to fight.
“It is frustrating I have been off for so long because I have wanted to fight. I was willing to go to Germany if that would have been the deal.
“This is going to be a very good fight. DaVarryl has a big punch and I know he will come in determined.
“This will be a great challenge, but I am always willing to accept a challenge.’’
