The manner of the drubbing Calzaghe gave him absolutely ruined him. Don't think he fought on a major card ever again and he quietly just disappeared. Probably working in library or something now.
Lacy didn't disappear. Fought Manfredo on the Hatton/Mayweather card, fought Taylor who was coming off the 2 Pavlik losses and even ended up losing to a shot RJJ.
