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?
He said the Eubank win got his attention.
Calzaghe did call out Jones to no avail. Others who didnt call out got a chance like WBO MW champ O Grant, but Calzaghe was high risk low reward
