An open letter to Dominic Guinn:

"No longer will you be known as the fighter with no heart Dominic,you will now be known as the one with no brain.You fought,like an idiot..."

P.S.-Toney pretty impressive for a 37-yr.old fat guy though...

BTW-What can one say about Byrd-Williamson? It was about as exciting as a game of checkers in a convalescent center.A winnable fight for Williamson,if only he had more of a 'fighters mentality'.At least Byrd-who seems LOST when forced to play the role of agressor-seemed to 'want it' in the championship rounds...

P.S-Word to Williamson;"Look down to your right.Yeah...There is a HAND there..." :-)
