Re: Michael Watson v Joe Calzaghe
I agree with the Watson sentiment up to a point. He's going to nail Calzaghe with some flush shots. But then what?
That's the problem with Joe Calzaghe. You execute your plan, and after it succeeds, he's still there letting his hands go in a clever way. His engine, will and chin wins him rounds, even against superior technicians.
I think Nigel Benn would be a more difficult match-up for Calzaghe than Watson. You just have to seperate the man from his senses. Joe is eager to fire back even when it isn't in his best interests, and his oft-injured hands makes him wary of throwing continuous hard shots.
He's still good that way, though.
