It's a 90% positive to be a clear JC win. How it happens is up for discussion however.

Hmm. Has a true norseman ever been 'Lacy'd' in the last 1200 years or so? I remember a time when they Lacy'd everything in the way of the journey.

Calzaghe has the thicker wrists, a huge factor. A sign his bones are thicker and stronger.

His legs are bigger, that is where the power and blance is coming from. Kessler is top-heavy.

Neck...Calzaghe. Pencil neck Kessler may have a weak chin.

Calzaghe has the thinner arm and bigger fist. A hammer like shape. Kessler small fists and fat arms, shaped more like a stick or something. Hammers work better than sticks for hitting people.

They only got Lacy'd by Christianity - but other than that, a true norseman such as Kessler can't let a welsh stallion get the best of him.

My visions say there will be a carnage. Maybe both men will die from the clash of the titans...

What does it all matter if Calzaghes hammer breaks on impact? Kessler hands and arms are like spears.

JC also has balls the size of tennis balls, which he will promptly tea bag mikkel with come november.

Tennis balls may be understating it, I'd say they're more in tune with a small medicine ball.
Get off Calzaghes nuts. Literally. This takes nuthugging to a level never previously recorded by human beings.

Hammers a certainly more suitable for slapping. Spears for jabbing perhaps.

What a ****in weird thread

I always thought from the picture Joe was slightly smaller , although I reckon this fight is going to be a about styles not the physical match up. If Kessler can figure out a way to deal with Joes fast flurries and weird angles he's sunk , however if Kessler approaches Joe as if he is fighting the guys he has fought in the past he is going to get his arse handed to him.

I go with Joe ! ( but its with doubt in my heart !)

it seems the lower stats were mixed up accidently. im sure kessler has bigger fist for example.

as for height i still believe kessler has the height on calzaghe because i've seen kessler posing opposite to mundine in their weigh-in, and kessler looked shorter than mundine! now we all know mundine is a shortie etc, and well that goes to show you how the slightest angle on a shot can enlarge/shrink a person.

but at the end of the day, it's pretty academic since they are almost similar physically in many ways.

joe has speed advantage, kessler has power. and don't say is disputable... kessler has i believe 18 clean ko's on his record. calzaghe has 2 ko's! that shows the difference in their stopping power right there.

and considering kessler is 7 years younger, great stamina, superior power and focus. and a few other things, and we have kessler by UD or late KO

I have never seen such an equally matched prime undefeated fighters since the DLH-TITO matchup.

I just hope it doesn't end up as controversial as DLH-TITO though..
