CHRIS BYRD CELEBRATES IBF TITLE WIN OVER EVANDER HOLYFIELD.
Heavyweight fighter Chris Byrd celebrates in the ring after defeating
Evander Holyfield in their IBF heavyweight championship bout at
Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey, December 14, 2002. Byrd
defeated the four-time world champion in a 12-round unanimous decision
to win the previously vacant IBF title. The title was vacated by Lennox
Lewis after the Briton refused a mandatory defense against Byrd,
claiming there was no interest from the public in seeing the fight.
