What's so hard about SMW anyway??

It's a SLOPPY ..WEAK..division..with no prestige whatsoever..

Taylor has fought Hopkins twice..that alone eclipses Joey's ****ty resume..

Taylor has had ALL 3 BELTS AROUND HIS WAIST..

That is something Joe WILL NEVER ACHIEVE
So recieving two controversial decisions over a 40+ Hopkins eclipses 20 title defences of pure dominative fashion and over solid opposition with two A class fighters in the mix?

You all make me laugh.

Sure, dominate all but 1 opponent he has faced, have very little stylistic flaws at that, only one intangible flaw.

Not to mention, we saw what Taylor looked like vs. a tricky southpaw in Wright and saw how he responded to Spinks' speed. You are absurd if you think the very brutal Joe Calzaghe does not defeat Jermain Taylor.

But, this is the absurdity that boxing fans have to live with, so ride on.

Your nuts, he wouldnt dominate Taylor. Taylor showed he could compete with guys like Wright and Hopkins. Calzahge hasnt faced one fighter on the skill level of those guys. Calzahge just beat a one dimensional guy, which I put in the same category as Pavliks win over Edison Miranda. Lets see Calzhage beat a guy that can actually do some more things before we say he would dominate Taylor.

Taylor has faced the better competition, but Calzaghe's foot speed and hand speed would give Taylor all sorts of problems. Spinks's own elusiveness and speed have Taylor a lot of trouble. Calzaghe's feints and subtle movements would keep Taylor off balance, not knowing when he was going to punch. Taylor wouldn't be able to establish his jab. I think Calzaghe would get on the inside, fire off quick/short/accurate combinations and get right back out. He would control the pace and control the tempo of the fight in my opinion. I would say he wins 9 to 3 or something like that.

Brook -

Joe would take Taylor out in 5 rounds or less with his swarming tactics and speed, Taylor would drop his defence and eat shot after shot and Calzaghe would in fact be the biggest hitter he had ever faced considering he's jumping up in weight.

All of that accumulation... TKO 4 or 5. Taylor would fall apart.

Yeah, he's a real '*****'.

Especially considering that he's grinded out wins with two broken hands.

Broke his hand against Lacy in the 8th, continued firing that left like a madman down the stretch, even came in the 12th to brutalise Lacy further with his broken left. This type of stuff is legendary for this current generation, it was the definitive performance of 2006.

What is absurd is to think that Taylor has a chance in hell against Calzaghe.

What's even more absurd is the constant discredit that one of the best of this generation recieves.

Lets see, Taylor fought Hops to a virtual draw in 24 rounds. . . but would have no chance against Joe "Little hands of Glass" Calzaghe?

Actually they are very similar. Both guys are really tough guys with big wills to win, and both are good solid boxer punchers. I think its a real good fight, but seeing Calzhage fight guys like Charles Brewer the way he did, leads me to believe he wouldnt dominate Taylor.
