I think - he was a hard nosed bastard - like a army drill sergant.

Big on fitness , etc

But what he lacked in was professionalism - and class -

So things like nutrition - he probaly never gave a shit about his fighters nutrtion he wasnt professional enough to care

Enzos moobs - were probaly down to shit nutrtion - hot dogs - pizzas - chips

Bradely Price - and Gavin Rees would go for a few pints down the pub after training

Enzo Calzaghe went far in boxing because he was so ignorant - he wasnt daunted by anything

They done no skipping at his gym

Shit sparring - or sometimes no sparring for big fights

And eat whatever junk you want

No question he deserved trainer of the year when he got it. He had a phenomenal year. I think his legacy will be Joe Calzaghe and not much else though and so can't be regarded as a great trainer

A shit trainer and I believe that Joe could have been a lot more if he'd have had a proper boxing coach. The only thing he could do was motivate his fighters to be physically fit. No sparring for fights

Very limited technical coaching ability and ran his mouth far to often. I hope he stays quiet now he's out of the game unlike his son who can't seem to handle not having a limelight.
Do you you actually like any British person who's involved in boxing?, because you only ever seem to criticise.

I only really criticize the Calzaghe's. Can't think of anyone else who I constantly criticize. And for the umphteen time, nationality should play no concept in whether you like a boxer or not.

Professionally - Not really my cup of tea, and not particularly fond of the way he did things, in several aspects as a trainer.

Personally - I've always found him very pleasant and very sincere. Don't have a bad word to say about him as a person. Bit of a nutter, but he has a heart of gold too.


I've not always agreed with a lot of the hype that surrounded the Calzaghe stable, but there's no doubt he played a big part in bringing attention, controversy, and many memories to boxing in Wales.
Thanks for your contributions to the sport Enzo. I wish you well in retirement and all the very best in your future endeavours.

I agree, i was only asking the question. I must have missed the threads in which you actually respected a British person who's involved in boxing.

Nah you got me wrong pal, I love loads of british fighters, I just probably go overboard with the ones I don't like

And even though I dont like Calzaghe I ALWAYS respect him, not just for what he achieved but I respect any single person who steps through those ropes AM/PRO
