    You are a pathetic pos.

    As long as youve trolled this forum you arent familiar with “‘never heard of him”. Gotcha.

    I dont know if my feelings can recover from this one. Truly heart breaking.

    When is the last time you saw Calzaghe win any kind of poll?

    He was going to get destroyed by Lacy
    Outboxed by Hopkins
    Destroyed by Jones

    People will never learn

    Really?

    I remember Froch calling him out and being a royal pain in the ass about it.

    To be fair he didn’t turn into Calslappy until his hands gave out. He beat RJJ and BHop after his hands were already bashed to hell too. That’s why he had to retire win or lose after RJJ.

    They both get slept on quite a bit. Theyve got some striking similarities.

    Calzaghe was a clear betting favourite over Hopkins and Jones.

    I think Calzaghe would lose to Froch

    Nah, love them both but Joe would win, he'd maybe get knocked down at some point though.

    I just don't see why anyone would pick Calzaghe. "Work-rate" isn't enough. What punches, counters, or traps has Ward shown to be vulnerable to that Calzaghe excels at? What similar fighters to Ward did Calzaghe face and look stylistically suited for? What key adjustments and defensive or offensive skills has he demonstrated that would counter Ward's strengths? What does he do in the ring much better than Ward?

    I have numerous answers for each of the above questions were they to be reversed for Ward, but struggle to think of anything tangible for Joe.

    I think Calzaghe beats Froch. He was really fast and Froch just wasn't that quick. That speed would allow Calzaghe would out land him and Joe had an amazing chin so Froch doesn't even have punchers chance. It would be a points victory for Joe.

    Froch would have a puncher's chance as Calzaghe could be hurt. He recovered well and had a good chin, but he wasn't Hagler. Calzaghe would definitely be the deserved favourite.
