Not sure what you are on about? But yes I think Jones chose not to fight Calzaghe when he was called out, but as said dont blame Jones when he could win a HW title
Hey B, Jones didn't go after Calzaghe, because who was Calzaghe at the time to be gone after by a guy of RJJ's status? The onus would have been on Calzaghe to go after Jones, who wss the moneymaker. Joe had nothing to offer Jones.

Hadn't Jones previously stated that he had looked in on Calzaghe early on, but ended up dismissing him because Calzaghe backed off on his level of opposition?
