I think you missed my point. Joe Calzaghe can't throw little punches to keep Jake of, he can't slap and expect not to get hit. He is more likely to hurt his hands because he will find himself firing in full-bore punches more and more as the fight wares on, or from round one depending upon strategy. Cal "rests" his hands in most fights. He can't do that here.
