Re: Potential Calzaghe scenerio and your thoughts.
If he beats Kessler, Pavlik and Hopkins then its comprehenable to argue that he's the greatest Supermiddle in that divisions short history. If he beats Kessler he's unified against the best possible fighter he could fight for all the belts along with his numerous defenses.
Pavlik is also a great name on Calzaghes resume because he's universally recognised Middleweight champion and one of the most formidable fighters currently fighting regardless of weight.
Hopkins would just be a name on the resume which looks good, one of the great Middleweights in his own right too. I don't know much about Dawson so i'll comment on him when I finally get to see him.
Its important to remember that if Calzaghe beats Pavlik and Hopkins, then he has beaten two fighters with ring belts and he also holds that same belt at Supermiddle.
