I'm going with Moore, but I don't have time right now to elaborate on why.

Physically Moore is the more proven fight so I'll give him the strength and power edge. However speed goes to Joe and they are both skilled operators.

If Moore boxes Joe and stays behind a jab he could edge a win but if Moore starts coming for Joe then Joes in the zone and he can be close to unbetable.

The best thing I'd like to see happen is both of them duke it out in ring centre, on the inside. Joe has a top inside game and when Moore tucks up behind his cross guard, we are going to get some real rough housing.

I'm going with Moore, but if Calzaghe does a paint job on Kessler I will re-think thinks a bit. Calzaghe needs to be tested vs elite level talents. I was impressed at how well he held off a much stronger Jeff Lacy.

Most super middles enter the ring in the high 170's to low 180's anyway, so the weight differential between the two is not that great.

On pure boxing skills to win rounds, I think Calzaghe is better than Moore. The question is could Calzaghe hold Moore off, and if forced to take his punches in route to a decision. Maybe.

Moore fairly regularly lost to any opposition even approaching Calzaghe's level. Unless I have overlooked a stylistic nightmare that may exist for Calzaghe, the result is an inevitable Calzaghe win.

Moore is bigger, stronger, more proven and a wonderful ring general. If there is a weakness Joe's inferior opposition has failed to uncover then Archie will find it. On the other hand a healthy Calzaghe out to win a big fight is the better puncher.

I'd pick a peak Moore to win it by decision. The fact that it would be such a major step up in class for Joe would be the deciding factor for me.

Thanks for that opinion, there, Mr. Objective.
