i agree there. beating kessler will make him the best ever supermiddleweight, but still not an ATG boxer.
this is an awkward time for calzaghe, because there aren't many other fighters out there who are in their prime as well as being established respected champions.
A win against dawson or pavlik or bute will be played down (dawson will get him the most respect out of the three), whilst hopkins, tarver or woods will be seen as past-it.
