Calzaghe deserved to win. Kessler fought well. But against a southpaw with more speed and experience, in front of a hostile crowd, his class boxing wasn't enough.

I'll give Kessler this. He was a gracious loser. He will improve greatly from this fight. He just has to make a few changes and he'll be in great fights at super midldeweight. Oh, and at 28, he's better (& achieved more) than Calzaghe was at 28 beyond doubt.

He lost to a man who proved to be a modern great, and gave Joe some of the hardest rounds of his career.

After the fight Kessler had a bad swollen closed left eye, you couldn't even tell from Calzaghe's face on the Danish tv interview that he had been in a hard fight. I remeber the post Bika fight, Calzaghe's face was cut and swollen all over the place, you could tell he had gone 12 rounds.
And why did the ref jump in??? (As of what I know it's not allowed to hit one in the neck) did you even see the fight

Joe did win and yes Kessler were hurt by the bodyshot in the 8th. but let me ask you this ......if you got someone hurt does that allow you to use illegal punches???

and the Swollen eyes hey you can those from other than being hit by the hands. (that's why Joe was cut in the Bika fight was dirty)

As in the Kessler fight Joe went in clinches with his Head first so cut the **** about the swollen/cut of Kessler and Joe wasn't.

Joe was maybe not hurt but he sure weere stunted by the's not normal for what I've seen that he stops attacking and that what he just did.

Hail the King ...and may the Prince Rise!!!!
