Default Re: Was it Johnson's workrate or his power that caused Calzaghe to duck him?

Ok boss have a look at this article

http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/boxing/2992148.stm

Now in the article team Ottke accuse no show Joe and his camp of ducking them, what we've always heard from Joe's promoter is that it was Ottke who wanted no part of Calzaghe but this account differs and says it was indeed Joe and his camp who were terrified of Ottke hence prefered the mando bums instead of the big unification fight the division needed. Now if it is true (which it looks it is) that Calzaghe did indeed duck Ottke then we can say it's consistent with what his former promoter had to say about him.
