    You didn't have any balls to back up any of your guarantees, which is a good thing, I guess, as you were wrong about all of them.

    Looks like around 30% of the forum is from the UK.

    still salty you didn't even make the poll for best mod and other mods had no clue who you were?

    Nah, I don't bet real money over the internet with strangers. I bet with sunfish that I wouldn't post in the boxing forum for a certain period of time and i honored that, I've honored the av/sig bet I lost too.

    Very surprised by this video. Most of the older people picking Joe, the younger guys going with Dre.

    Didnt keep count, but it seemed most picked Joe

    Not sure, maybe PBI could tell us. Seems it was published on youtube a couple days before the Kovalev rematch.

    Obviously the Kova rematch was a great performance. However, Kovalev and Calzaghe are nothing alike, and the reasons why people picked Joe in the video (punch output, southpaw, footwork) shouldn't really be influenced from the Kova rematch.

    I personally think Ward wins, just interesting that all but 1 of the OGs in the video picked Calslappy. That is with these guys pointing out he slaps also, lol.

    Dude you have such a bug up your ass about the idea of Ward possibly losing a boxing match against Calzaghe.

    Why dont you just check when the video was uploaded?

    You want to establish that Ward definitely beats Calzaghe as a fact. You cant.

    If Buster Douglas never boxed Mike tyson, what would say today about that fantasy fight?

    Just Calzaghe vs Ward is more like Holyfield vs Tyson.

    I asked when the video posted here was made because I watched it here, not on youtube. It doesnt show that information here.

    Not sure who you think you are but I dont give a flying fuck if you like my opinions or not lol. Dont read them if thats how you feel.

    Are you too stupid to realize youre arguing your point just like Im arguing mine?

    It would be a competive fight and not a mismatch. Ward is not flawless either.

    Ward would win comfortably. I dont really care if you agree or not.

    I loved calzaghe and was a big fan, but ward would win. Ward has fought the better comp & has better credentials . He fought guys in their prime and won. I think joe probably beats most of those guys too, but not all of them.

    The guy at 7:28 is a dumbass! He calls rocky marciano and calzaghe overated because they beat guys past their prime. Thats the same thing mayweather did. Ward is a true great that beats mayweather & calzaghe

    Ward is too versatile and accurate, Calzaghe too hittable and not quite intelligent enough to outsmart someone that complete.

    Calzaghe would overwhelm Ward and beat the shit out of him after finding his rhythm in the first 4 rounds.

    It's hard to do a hypothetical matchup with two undefeated guys. We've never seen either of them fold and they both always find a way to win. It's easy to say that Calzaghe always finds his rhythm and can outwork Ward. It's also easy to say that Ward has seen better competition and neutralizes everyone. He could pressure Calzaghe and beat him up on the inside.

    I think it's a close fight with Calzaghe taking the decision.
