I think Joe said "I'd give him a good fight, but my moneys on him"

I also remember him saying something along the lines of "I know where my capabilities end" when asked about a rjj fight

It was basically Calzaghe saying something along the lines of "I would fight him but I'd have to be paid mega money to do it".

At the time he wasn't making huge money while Jones was earning mega bucks so just a wise business decision.

Calzaghe said in his own book that RJJ was the one fighter that may have beaten him in their primes.

Come on, this is coming from a boxer who was dominant about his chances in a fight. He's hardly going to have that mentality is he.

"I could probably give Jones a tough fight, probably the best fight he's ever had," said Calzaghe. "But I know my capabilities and unless I got paid the crown jewels I wouldn't want to risk it."
