Default better top 5: Ward or Calzaghe?

Got this idea from reading another one of bailey's discredit this fighter to boost his daddy's status threads. so who's top 5 wins are better? Who won more decisively against better fighters?

Ward:
Froch, Abraham, Bika, Kessler, Green

Calzaghe:
Hopkins, Kessler, Bika, Lacy, Eubank
looks easy enough, but im sure some of you dumb asses will probably get it wrong.

Hopkins, WBA-WBC Champion undefeated Kessler, and IBF Champ Lacy is better than Abraham and Green, Cut-eyed Kessler, and Froch who lost to cut-eyed past prime Kessler.

At least Eubank actually had some Super-middleweight championships in his day, Allan Green and Abraham? come on.

Right now, I have to give the nod to Joe.

Calzaghe's win over Hopkins is still a better win than anything on Ward's ledger.

It's an unfair comparison, though, because Calzaghe's career is over and Ward's is in the early stages still.

Manfredo wasn't one of Joe's top five or even top 10 wins.

Eubank, Reid, Mitchell, Woodhall and Brewer were all better for certain.

As was Omar Sheika at the time, let's not forget he was coming off a win over Glen Johnson.

Others like McIntyre, faded Roy Jones and 2001 prime 30-0 Mario Veit were probably at least as good as Manfredo, who has never impressed me.

Many people like to forget the fact that Sheika just beat Glen Johnson before Calzaghe destroyed him

Calzaghe beat Bika more convincingly than Ward, Green and Abraham have never even won a super-middleweight title..

you guys are so dumb. did you even see the sheika fight? it was stopped from a cut that opened after a headbut. then calzaghe targeted it against the no defense sheika and got it stopped. sheika was still giving calzaghe a good fight. wasn't much dominating at all.

I chose Ward.
It's close, but Calzhghe's win over Hopkins was not defentive while all of Ward's win's were. Eubank was also past his best.
Ward fought better guys at the time they fought and has more clear wins.

Calzaghe's win against Hopkins was close, but the Hopkins win is FAR BETTER than any of Ward's wins, IMHO.

Abrahamn.. Great Middlewieght champ..
Both Have Kessler Ward victory better..
Both Have Bika.. Joe victory better
Eubank Nice win for Joe..
Lacy Good Win Owned by Joe
Froch a former champ with a great Resume Great Win for Ward
Hopkins is a Great Win for Joe

I voted for Ward.. but its clear that Joe has the better Resume but 1 more victory by Ward say Bute, any of the LightHeavyweight champs then Joe's Resume is Trumped by Ward..
