no you're categorically discarding two knockdowns based on a broad assumption that you have nothing to support with other than a generalization which may or may not be true in this specific situation.

but we'll discard them if it makes you feel better. get bent noob.

How Calzaghe will use his hands speed and his workrate when Ward will tie his hands and hit him with inside short uppercutts & hooks ?!

Both have excellent chins.

It isn't as though Joe's never been hurt or dropped whatsoever. Reid, Brewer, shot Eubank, shot Jones...
is that a new ESB saying?

Everyone was supposed to be more complete than Calzaghe, but nobody managed to beat him.
Calzaghe is old, has damaged hands and is well past his best, so at worst would just clearly beat ward by UD.
Prime Calzaghe would get rid of Ward inside the distance without great fuss.

Ward was gassing against Froch and Bika, both were getting the better of Ward at the end of the fight respectively and slow Froch without the biggest workrate was getting to Ward at the end.

Tell me which top undefeated fighters or undefeated world champs has Ward fought?

How would Ward tie up Calzaghe when he would be taking flush shots on the chin and having to take short hooks and uppercuts when in close?

Ward is clearly more versatile.

Calzaghe has more hand speed and throws a higher volume. In just about every other relevant category Ward either tops him or they are level.
nah not stamina, I think that is Ward's weakness and later in his career he will get stopped late by a fighter who has no right to beat him.

he's had some injuries already at his age that could nag him. shoulder surgery is nothing to scoff at. we'll see about the stamina but he's had some not so minor injuries already.

So Ward is slower, has less stamina, doesnt punch as hard, doesnt have as good a chin, has a lower workrate, but you dummies think Ward can beat Calzaghe by holding him and trying to be sneaky who has seen it all, who was successful in 24 world title fights when hardly ever on the back foot in his career. Yeah got it

Calzaghe turned pro injured and had many injuries, yet that didnt stop him winning.
Excuses already being made for Ward

I had it scored a bit wider for Calzaghe but Bika was brought up due to the inside fighting remark. All the infighting for Ward was razor thin action but Calzaghe especially in the last few rounds (been a while since iv watched it) really started to get the better of it inside.

I wasn't catagorically discarding the knockdowns, i was noting the inconsistancy with INTBUTT's comment towards their relevancy. You've once again disregarded the context and as i previously mentioned aren't worth my time. Trying joining the discussion when you have the reading comprehension of a 8 year old.

nah you're getting too fired up already. just calm down. the post i was responding too said ward's stamina was going to be his downfall later in his career. i was saying i see injuries being more of an issue than stamina.
