Losing to such a fighter is no shame and it certainly does not confirm anything other than that PBF is a supreme fighter.
I agree with a point about Floyd, but what I said earlier, is what many people will also say about Hatton. Same boat Calzaghe is in.Once he fights an elite fighter and if he losses. People are going to say the same exact thing. Thay calzaghe is a fraud etc. Thats the way this sport goes
