Why is Robinson let off for fighting in a weak era, but Calzaghe penalised for happening weight 168, an unheralded weight, with no elite names willing to square off with Joe?
I don't understand your answer. Simplify. Why was the 1940s a weak era? Was it weaker than the 1930s? Was it weaker than the 1950s? Why? Why not?
