common...

I will have to watch once again how the great Calzaghe Joe dismantles RJJ with his slaps just because this thread.

Bernard Hopkins- Former two-division world champion

Fought Joe Calzaghe on April 19, 2008 and lost by split decision

Fought Roy Jones Jr. May 22, 1993 and lost by unanimous decision



“Jones by unanimous decision based on his speed and power.”



Lennox Lewis- Former heavyweight champion

"Jones has unbelievable speed and Calzaghe's never fought anyone like him. Jones likes it when his opponent comes to him and unfortunately for Calzaghe, that's exactly what he does; comes to his opponent and is right in their face. I pick Jones on points, but I think it’ll be a very close fight."



Jeff Lacy- Former IBF super middleweight champion

Fought Joe Calzaghe March 4, 2006 and lost by unanimous decision



“It’s going to be a hard fight to pick. If Jones doesn't stay on the ropes and give Calzaghe angles and lots of movement I'm going to go with Jones by decision. Roy can't stay on the ropes and give Joe the chance to throw his slapping punches. This is a great fight for Jones to win and setup a big money fight again with Hopkins!”



Glen Johnson- Former IBF, IBO and Ring Magazine light heavyweight champion

Fought Roy Jones September 25, 2004 and won by KO in 9th round



“Roy Jones will win. I believe Calzaghe fights an amateur style. He throws a lot of slappy punches. Roy throws much more meaningful punches. In general, Calzaghe will throw more punches than Roy, but Roy’s will be harder hitting. Unless the judges are blind, they will see that the harder punches make Jones the winner. They should see that Roy Jones’ hard-hitting punches make the difference.”



Vernon Forrest - WBC welterweight champion

“Roy Jones is still the best fighter in my era and still arguably one of the best fighters period. Roy with his speed can match Calzaghe, and he has power. So the power and speed is with Roy. Roy by decision.”



Paulie Malignaggi- Former IBF junior welterweight champion.



"It's a hard fight to pick. I thought Calzaghe at first because, but maybe he's too much for Roy right now. But based on what Joe just said about the three Brits beating the three Americans (Calzaghe-Jones, Hatton-Malignaggi, Haye-Barrett), I'm pulling Roy home.....Jones by decision."



Winky Wright- Former world junior middleweight champion



“I think Roy is going to win. I think that his punches are going to be sharper than Calzaghe’s and I think that Roy is a harder puncher. I think it might go all 12 rounds, but if somebody gets stopped I think its Calzaghe late in the fight.”



Dan Rafael- ESPN.com



“Although Calzaghe is the favorite, I think Jones' style and speed -- he's still fast -- are going to give him problems. I think it will be a tough, close fight but I'm going with the upset special. I like Jones to pull it out on a close decision.”



Gordon Marino- Wall Street Journal



”Jones over Calzaghe. This is a fascinating fight. Jones is still quick and with his awkward style and dangerous punching power is able to freeze very active opponents like Calzaghe. I'm picking Jones by a decision.”



Tim Smith- New York Daily News



“Roy Jones has good power and I think that will offset the volume of punches that Calzaghe throws. Calzaghe has a good chin so I don't see him getting knocked out. I like Jones in a decision.”



Franklin McNeil- Newark Star Ledger

“On paper, Calzaghe should not have much difficulty getting by Jones. Calzaghe is a southpaw, and Jones has had his most difficult outings against non-orthodox fighters. And though each man has quite a few miles on his tires, Jones has logged a bit more. The physical edge goes to Calzaghe, but stylistically Jones’ constant movement could prove to be beneficial. If Jones can control the pace, make Calzaghe miss, score with counter shots and his stamina holds up, he will win. Jones wins by decision.”



Bobby Cassidy- Newsday

“I like Roy Jones in the 11th round TKO. Calzaghe does not have the power to keep Jones honest. I think by the second half of the fight Jones will be picking him a part. Calzaghe looked so good against Hopkins because
Hopkins didn't have the firepower to slow him down. But Jones has both speed and power. In other fights, Calzaghe has been able to adjust to one of those assets; he won't be able to adjust to both, especially from a fighter like Jones.”

Hi mate,


What's with the picture of Kell? It doesn't seem right. Ha!

I always expect to see Tommy.


This is the 3rd time this week, that I've seen that list.

It doesn't alter the fact, that Roy was 9 weeks from his 40th Birthday, he hadn't fought at elite level for 3 years, he'd been knocked out twice, more than 4 years EARLIER, and Joe had dismissed him TWICE leading up to the fight.


Also, the following people all picked Joe to win.


Shane Mosley

Ricky Hatton

John Ruiz

Oscar De La Hoya

Peter Manfredo

Manny Pacquiao

Freddie Roach


Sugar Shane said "I'm going with Joe now, he'll outpoint him, but back in the day, Roy would have destroyed him!"

Joe deserved to lose to Robin Reid who was blown away by an inexperienced Froch who at his bes lost to one handed Ward.
Ward beats Joe.

Groves ducked Stieglitz who was beaten by King Arthur who got shutout by Ward. Ward beats Groves

Calzaghe beat Reid when unwell, damaged hand and after someone had tried putting glass in his drink and still won.
Now if you think Reid won, tell me which rounds.
So lets see your scorecard

Ask yourself this. How could you not score rounds 2, 3, 4,7, 8 (Reid also had a point deduction in that round), 12 to Calzaghe? Remember Reid had a point deducted also.

I thought like 2 judges that Calzaghe was a clear winner and except for McCrory who scored a draw and later seemed to agree all of the other studio guest scored wide for Calzaghe including Mcguigan and Eubank. I also think damaged handed (damaged his hand in round 4) Calzaghe won and felt he won rounds 1, 9 (Reid did land the punch of the night in round 9 though) & 11.

Good away win for Calzaghe

Reid wouldnt fight Calzaghe when he was champ
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

Reid was shot when Froch beat him and had been blasted out by Lacy, before Calzaghe beat Lacy.
So Dino doesnt have a clue what hes going on about, so to cheer him up... Heres another

De La Hoya - who lost to Trinidad, who lost to Jones, who lost to Calzaghe

Hi Loudon, haha I'm really looking forward to the Alexander-Brook fight next month, I really hope Kell can pull off the upset in Detroit. I've got a lot of respect for him going over there, and taking on a good champion in Alexander, it's a hard fight which I think is 60-40 in Alexander's favour (hometown advantage). What do you think?

After though I'll find another Hearns avatar

My word that is truly amazing.
What about Tyson losing to Lewis, this shows that even Iron Mike has a loss that dates back to the great Calzaghe

What a stunning observation - We can safely conclude that all roads lead to Joe Calzaghe. Though it's been proven scientifically, I'm sure many will become insecure at this conclusion
