Default Re: better top 5: Ward or Calzaghe?

The fight takes place in Es***, it is very much Delaneys home venue, Delaneys fans abuse Calzaghe and spit on him.

Calzaghe responds in kind to Delaney..

Yep. I remember. He was game but outclassed. There were some really terrible opponents (old, untalented, fat, etc.) before and after this fight (pre-title) but this fight at least had some tension as Mark came to fight and as he was undefeated had a belief it was possible - for a bit.
