Re: OK, It looks like I have to admit it first...
funny I was thinking exactly the same thing looking through the general forum this morning..
'name the fighter who can get closet to Calzaghe from 168-200'
'is Calzaghe the best smw ever?'
'can Joe find the cure to AIDS, swim the atlantic'?
etc, etc. 90% of threads must be about basically the same conversation.
it's all been done to death, a bit boring and some of it cheesy. All this stuff about how Kessler too...how he's 'class act in and out of the ring' as the cliche goes.
didn't we all know before the fight that both seem decent guys and both outstanding fighters?
I'm an ex critic of Calzaghe and what I felt was his comfort zone and hanpicking...I'm happy that I was proved wrong and he fought top guys at 168, but am on the verge of becoming a hater now with all this bandwagon riding and arse kissing going on. No doubt a lot of those kissing his arse now were amongst his many fierce critics as recently as 20 months ago.
