Even if you give him a pass for not fighting Jones, Hopkins or toney when they were near their primes, there is a ton of other people he could have fought, and beat who would have improved his legacy.
Glen Johnson, Antonio tarver, Kelly pavlik, sven ottke, Anthony Mundine, Carl froch, chad Dawson, jermain Taylor.
You'd back him to beat all of them but he didn't fight them.
Andre Ward eclipsed calzaghes entire career in two years.
Joe has to go down as a huge disappointment
i think the early parts of his career were wasted but he made up for it from 05-08
glen johnson made his name with a win over jones at light heavy in 2004. jc never moved up til 08
dont go there with sven oittke. joke of a champ
froch and dawson were only coming up when jc retired. jc retired in nov 08. froch won first title next month
lacy, kessler, hopkins were the best guys he could of fought and he did
