Default Re: Joe Calzaghe would be more likely to beat Samuel Peter than Sugar Ray Robinson

There is absolutely nothing the record or the video evidence of SRR to suggest he stands a chance against Joe Calzaghe, his only hope is that Calzaghe breaks both his hands -fullstop- Cazlaghe footage shows a strong, fast, skilled fighter who isn't going to lose to a Welterweight (Robinsons optimum weight), no matter how good that Welterweight is -fullstop- And we all know Calzaghe is exceptional and better than any opponent Robinson ever faced P4P -fullstop-
