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

It would have been interesting but at that time Lacy and Kessler were starting to become faces at SMW and Calzaghe was looking to clear up where he had been avoided before
As crazy as it sounds..

I would pick the weight drained version of Roy from the first Tarver fight, to KO the version Joe fought..

Roy's confidence and punch resistance had declined severely since being knocked out...

Roy had no intention to try to take Joe to life and death type of fight that would have happened earlier in their careers.. Roy knew deep down he couldn't keep up with Joe anymore.. He was happy to see the final bell and cash that check.
