Default Re: Marvin Hagler vs. Joe Calzaghe

Calzaghe may win a couple of rounds simply because of workrate, but his punches has no power to keep Hagler away. Hagler finishes him sooner or later... if Calzaghe was floored instantly by old Hopkins and shot RJJ, I have no doubts prime Hagler would KO/TKO him eventually.

Its not really fair for the catchweight to be 164. Hagler never wanted leonard at 154 so we have to say marvin should fight at 168 to be consistent.
Joe C would beat hagler over 12 or 15. The speed,footwork,punch output,size,stamina,adaptability and chin of calzaghe sees him through to a clear points decision. As great a middle as marvin is he gets clearly outpointed here. Marvin has never fought a guy with these skills who is also considerably bigger than him as well. He cant outlast him ala duran,cant jump on him for the stoppage like hearns,nor can he try to close the gap after a slow start like leonard.
Joe C will go down as the years go by as the greatest modern 168er and a superb 175 er.(i know its sacriledge,but this guy is the closest we can imagine what Greb was possibly like.)
