Given the tone of these comments, it's just about enough for me to hope Hopkins wins next month.

I don't think he will, but it would certainly be one of the funniest things to happen in boxing for a while if Enzo keeps this **** up.

What will he say if Rees loses on Saturday? Enzo C. could be in for a very bad run. I'd only pick Joe C. to be a winner in any of the stable's upcoming title fights - and that's no certainty.

Plus, he blames solely Enzo Mac for the loss.

"We'll adjust to the mistakes he made. He's come to terms with it. There's no one to blame but himself. He won't do that again."

So it's nothing to do with the trainer!!!

He's probably right there though.

Enzo didn't follow the gameplan he admitted that himself. Not much a trainer can do in that scenario if he gets knocked out before being given a chance to sort Mac out.

"Enzo didnt follow the gameplan"

I would love to know what gameplan Enzo Calzaghe had for this fight, I rightly picked Haye to win based on his blinding handspeed here on ESB. I just couldnt see how Macarinelli could stay away from Hayes fast hands, & thats exactly what happened.

Exactly. What "gameplan"? The gameplan according to Weasel Face before the fight was based on the fact that Mac was "twice as fast", "hits harder", the "better boxer" and that Mac also had the better stamina and chin.

If you are faster, more skilled, fitter, more prepared, have a better chin, better ring craft, a better mentality and you hit harder than your opponent, then what ****ing plan do you need? None. You turn up and you win by virtue of being better in every relevant department.

The "plan" was to do what Enzo Mac always does. Jab well, throw nice hard 1-2's, look for the big left hook or over hand right and when the man covers up work the body and yet don't blaze away. Maintain constant and yet controlled pressure without burning yourself out. He always boxes the same. Upright, good jab, good 1-2 and likes to throw the left hook.

Well he jabbed and he threw the left and he looked for 1-2's, he also went to the body when in close. In fact considering how short the fight was he did everything that Mac does in most of his fights.

Problem was that Haye has better reactions and is faster. Haye timed the jabs and avoided almost all of them, he had Mac hitting air and he was the faster, stronger man with more power.
