Pretty even stats, but the supernatural element is something you forgot to add in Calzaghe's favour. Calzaghe also may be 6'2 or around there, Kessler may be an inch under 6'1 at 6 even judging from the photo's.

I don't think those stats are very big considering they are supermiddleweight fighters.

You're absolutely certain these are valid?
These are taken from HBOs board - so don't really know...

I've known about the slight reach advantage for a while, you didn't?

All the better for landing awkward angle shots.

Wasn't certain... Knew JCs but had forgotten Kesslers. What is funny though is the fact that Kesslers expanded chest is 2" broader, while at normal state its the same.

I mean, how many times have you seen a guy with an inch bigger forearms having half an inch smaller wrist size.

I think these guys are physically very similar in build, I think Joe is the naturally "bigger" guy in terms of structure and without doubt, the more physically conditioned guy.

Surprised if the fist stats are true, Joe has pretty small hands for a middleweight, which would make Kessler's even smaller.
People tend to be build weirdly... its seen before - like Andrade was bigger in all stats, except waist(i think) and ankles.

I think you're gradually figuring out that MK is not going to win...

Tennis ***** may be understating it, I'd say they're more in tune with a small medicine ball.

No way. If Calzaghe beats Kessler I will first realize it on the 4th or 5th

Those tennis***** are made of granite, since he dared facing Kessler - however, it will be his undoing.

What if Calzaghe beats Kessler supernaturally? Meaning a blowout on cards or just general 1 sided thrashing in beautiful fashion.

What if Kessler gets Lacy'd? Then you would realise it on the 10th!

Yep 10th of November - 2008... But this will never happen... Nor will the opposite happen. This is 90% positive to be a Draw, SD, or MD. Last 10% is TKO Kessler.
