Re: Is Joseph Calzaghe the Greatest European Boxer of All Time?
Without a doubt, one of Britains all tmie best. But tbf, Joe is rated so high partially because he made sure he remained unbeaten, but underated also because he was protected.
If he had taken on allcomers like Lewis he would have lost 2 or 3 fights, thats for sure, but would he have been then so well regarded? One things for sure, he wouldnt be so debated - we'd have a firmer idea of his legacy. Maybe his avoidance of losing his unbeaten record actually did him more harm than good?
