Default Re: Joe Calzaghe

Joe Calzaghe was an all time great fighter IMO.. I am sure many would criticize me for saying that, but when you combine his longevity, natural ability, effective aggression for a full 12 rounds, greatest at his primary weight class, and he does have some quality wins...... How could he not be ATG?

Now, I do also realize his career was very carefully managed, more than most other ATG's. Calzaghe didn't take quite as many risks as I would have liked to see, and I wish he would have done more to get a fight with Roy Jones when they were both elite fighters.. But the same could be said of most...

I can for sure appreciate what he did as a fighter though..
