I am not saying Calzaghe KO's La Motta, but a stoppage on accumulative damage is the most likely scenerio.
Depends on the ref. A modern one, judging from the Manfredo mess, may stop it. Then again, Lacy took more punishment than LaMotta would.

Jake is a particularly interesting case. Like others have said, his strengths aren't the best ones to exploit Calzaghe's weaknesses. On the other hand, his high workrate does make it unlikely that he would be "Lacy'd".
