Why should we bail out, we'll have a great time here, but im afraid that a lot of the Calzaghe fans will disappear. If Kessler loses i will cheer Calzaghe bc. then he is very good!

I don't think Calzagne retires yet either way. If he wins he wants a big payday vs. an Amrican such as Hopkins, if he loses he'll want revenge, and then a big payday vs. an American such as Hopkins.

Exactly...And even if he does retire, remember this:
Ali retired...Foreman retired...Duran, I think...and now PBF...I think they all came back....eh? ( Dr vooh here..new user )

I think JC want's a rematch if he loses. MK will give him a rematch that is for sure. But will JC do the same the other way around - I SURE HOPE.

By the way - FAT TONY - you will never hear a word about Mads Larsen if MK loses. Because Mads Larsen is so much below MK and will never even be a threat to a #10 ranked boxer.

Hey ManLovin,

Are you perhaps an expert on the 'man-crush' ?

You seem pretty obsessed with old Roy. (Your avatar and all those inane polls).

You remind me of another poster who can't stop posting about Oscar.

And there's a few who can't get Floyd off their mind. With others, it's Klit-hating, etc.

All you obsessive hater types could form a support group, get your own forum on ESB and then just sit aroud and 'bitch' the night away.

The Danes should be supporting Calzaghe. Kessler has abandoned his Danish heritage!



Boxing: Kessler to English boxing fans “Call me Mike Kessler”
August 27th 2007


In a short interview today unified super middleweight champion Kessler urged English boxing fans to get behind him in his upcoming super fight with Joe Calzaghe.

“I was born and raised in the Danish culture but I feel very much I have the blood of my English mother. I have many English traits such as ”

“Joe Calzaghe is of a Welsh-Italian bloodline so it makes sense for the English fans to back me. Call me Mike Kessler.”

Kessler is also planning to drop his nickname of the “Viking” for that of past English champion Lennox Lewis; “the Lion”

The fight on November 3rd is now officially being billed as: Battle of Britain - “The Pride of Wales” Joe Calzaghe vs. Mike “The English Lion” Kessler.

PR is always a powerful tool. He knows he is fighting abroad and hopes for a few cheers from the english.

I can't take the Lion thing seriously. That belongs to me . Besides it doesn't suit Kessler in any way. Sounds more like journalists continuing the train of thought of Kessler.

He can call himself Viking Warrior, Hitman, Left Crook, Sweet Nut, Simply the Simpson or whatever, he will still kick JCs butt


That said, he shouldn't abandon his english heritage either. Guess JC don't do that either. I bet he drives Ferraris

It is a bit far totally dropping the "Viking Warrior" thing.

He could have compromised with something like the "Viking Settler".

Joe's technically English though being born In London. Mikkel's only a halfling because his mums English.

Remember when Lacy wore an England shirt and pretended he had English ancestors? He called them something like Benjemin Disraili Lacy or some crap like that.

Arran said he was going to root for Lacy too at the time because Lacy wore an England shirt.

Calzaghe's dragon slap will cut through Kessler's Lion punch.

In what context? I know he isn't extravagant, but surely he surrounds himself with objects of quality. I would be very surprised if he doesn't have one italian car of some sort, or is somewhat italian in what he does; expensive watches, expensive designer clothes, etc etc. I wouldn't hold it against him, since he doesn't act like a PBF or Paris Hilton in the spending department
