Back onto the topic of Tszyu. He looks to me like one of those fighters other world champions couldn't dream of emulating, just like a Roy Jones. Tszyu's timing and accuracy (especially in that right) are something special justlike Jones speed is.

I'm not sure what Joe Calzaghe does well though.
Maybe more of that IBOGA? root is needed to provide further insite.

I seriously would enjoy that. Especially if it allows you to analyze a fight on a far deeper level.

As for Calzaghe, the thing that impresses me most is that brilliant combination punching. On the inside, I have no doubt that this is the most effective way to fight. I loved watching leonard, de la hoya and even roy at times do similar things (although apart from leonard to a lessor extent). It is almost impossible to mount an effective offense when being bombarded by punches, and I think this is something most opponents of Calzaghe really have trouble coming to terms with.
