Over at Eastside boxing, I'd say about 80% of members HATE Joe Calzaghe! They blame him for not taking bigger fights earlier in his career. Since I'm still new, and there always seems to be a general consensus on a fighter in forum whether it's MMA or boxing, and wondering what it is here on Sherdog. Personally I think he's a great fighter. Firstly, it takes alot to go the whole career undefeated, no matter which opponents. Secondly, I think he tried hard to get bigger fights, for some reason America didn't accept him and didn't want to promote him over there. However, he did have some fights which on paper he really should have lost like against Lacy, Kessler and maybe Hopkins. I respect that in the end of his career he wanted some super-fights to end his career, and gave up titles and pretty much guaranteed wins and took the Kessler, Hopkins and Jones Jnr. fights.
