Calzaghe can use his footwork to use the ring space, box in ring centre, cut the ring off and fight in the pocket. Hattons got quality footwork at cutting the ring off and he's quite good in the pocket. Not so good at using the ring or keeping a fight in ring centre. He's probably a little too jumpy as well.

I've actually changed my mind on this... Calzaghe's footwork was excellent. Part of the reason he was so good.

Hattons got no footwork? Are you having a ****ing laugh, seriously?

His footwork was one of the main reasons he was so good at cutting down the distance and closing off the ring, people can jump off the bandwagon and slag him off but saying that is just plainly chatting bullshit.

I'd rate him above both of them in British alltime rankings too to be perfectly honest.

Conteh is like a big Napoles.

Me too, but you won't find many that agree. As for the Jose - John comparison, it looks like i'm on YouTube for the rest of the afternoon.
