Re: better top 5: Ward or Calzaghe?
Manfredo wasn't one of Joe's top five or even top 10 wins.
Eubank, Reid, Mitchell, Woodhall and Brewer were all better for certain.
As was Omar Sheika at the time, let's not forget he was coming off a win over Glen Johnson.
Others like McIntyre, faded Roy Jones and 2001 prime 30-0 Mario Veit were probably at least as good as Manfredo, who has never impressed me.
