Default Re: If YOU were Joe Calzaghe, would you come out of retirement to fight Andre Ward?

I agree

Jones - Hampered by a cut for the only time in his career

Hopkins - Had a thyroid problem

Kessler - Hurt his hand

Manfredo - Was just about to land a KO shot on Joe but the ref jumped in, damn Manfredo was just about to star winning

Bika - Hadnt gained valuable experience on the American game show the contender, where they have actors pretending to be boxers, one of those actors was going to beat Joe after his training there. See above.

Lacy - Jet lagged and said himself he looked like he was on drugs

Mitchell - The ref saved Joe, he was going to bounce off the ropes and finish the fight

Sheika - Was beaten by a headbutt

The list goes on. Calzaghe was just lucky and fighters just kept having off nights against him, time and time again.

You see im not a troll or nuthugger, Im looking at the fights through your eyes now. Joe wasnt good enough to beat any of those guys, I dont know how he did it all those times. A fake that went 46 -0 with 21 title defences, 24 title fights, won all the SMW belts and held Ring belts at LHW & SMW the only active fighter at the time to hold belts in 2 divisions at the same time. Lucky
