His defence isn't good enough to stop Calzaghe's super fast assault.
He would be considerably smaller and only just as strong.

LaMotta has a lot of positives, but none of them mean he would win this fight. He obviously wouldn't get stopped, but this would be a horrible beating.
Why wouldn't he get stopped? He'd get tatooed worse than Lacy and this is a peak/peak fight, so that means less Calzaghe hand problems.

I am not saying Calzaghe KO's La Motta, but a stoppage on accumulative damage is the most likely scenerio.
