The irony of that fight is, with Hopkins being my favourite boxer, it's one of the few Calzaghe fights I didn't go to (most of them were in my hometown). I would never travel overseas to a Calzaghe fight purely for his reputaion of pull-outs/postponements, couldn't afford the risk of booking flights/accomodation etc
Manchester was my limit for him for the Lacy fight.
