Re: Joe Calzaghe: a wasted career?
Yep he wasted it on the WBO, IBF, WBA, WBC and Ring belts he won at Super-Middleweight and the Ring belt he won at Light-Heavyweight.
He got out of the sport with lots of money, lots of titles and undefeated.
What more could you want?
To have beaten Steve Collins for the proper title? To have fought Ottke? To have fought Nigel Benn? To come out of retirement at 40 to fight Andre Ward and Carl Froch?
