Default "Bernard Hopkins v Roy Jones farce may tempt Joe Calzaghe back to ring"

"[Only registered and activated users can see links. ], who turned 38 this week, was adamant when he quit the ring unbeaten and wreathed in compliments just over a year ago that he would not be tempted back. Maybe he's having second thoughts.

He will watch the performances of his last two victims, Bernard Hopkins (45) and Roy Jones Jr (41), when they square off for one of the most pointless and delayed rematches in [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] history on Saturday week, and conclude that, if he needs the money – and who doesn't, as they say? – he could beat both of them comfortably second time around.

And he's right. Hopkins – still fit through years of dedication but hardly the great fighter he still thinks he is – and the shot-through Jones...

Hopkins, suffering from delusions of past grandeur, says he will knock Jones out (he will) and then challenge David Haye for the WBA world heavyweight title (he won't).

Calzaghe, meanwhile, has had time to rest his weary body after nearly 30 years of fighting, amateur and pro. He's got more life in him than Jones and Hopkins put together, and "the itch", as Ricky Hatton calls it, is still there for Joe.

While the break has proved physically beneficial, Joe has found life without gloves tougher than he had imagined.

As he waits on his money from Frank ******'s defunct Sports Network Ltd, Joe still has to earn a living.

Joe needs some focus in his life. For nearly 30 years, from a tot to a king, he found that inside the ropes. Like so many before him and so many to
come, that is the home that keeps calling."

Kevin Mithchel is chief sportswriter for OSM. He wrote War, Baby - The Gllamour and violence in 1999, and ghosted Fraank, the autobiography of Frank Bruno, in 2006.

I don't think there is anyway Joe will be coming back, find such speculation a little lazy for an article and really doubt that he'd come back for Hopkins or Jones. Cricky, can you imagine the fuss kicked up though on here if he came back for Jones (if Jones beat Bernard).

Personally I wouldn't be against Hopkins/Calzaghe 2, I enjoyed that fight (yes I know I'm the only one) though it's getting very late in the day now and obviously, Joe's all done and dusted.

I'd love to see Hopkins Calzaghe 2 but I can't see him coming back, even though he seems a bit lost without boxing.

One of the worst decisions in recent times. Hopkins boxed him to pieces.

joe calzaghe is currently modelling clothes for "jacamo" - apparently an online clothes store. saw him today in the paper sporting some camo trousers, and he was interviewed in another paper last week. his colourful and bright personality really came to the fore

What a ridiculous article. Thats not even worth the bandwidth it takes up. Completely based on the wonderfuly stupid musings of the journalist. Utter nonsense.

He's not going to come back, he's obsessed with his 0, he's not going to stay out of the ring for so long then come back and risk it.

He seems to be in the paper every week absolutely hammered in London with his bird. Good luck to him!

It's quite amazing what supposed professional journalist often spout, but I guess much of it is to simply get attention, and in a limp way, I guess it worked, as it got some here.

The artical is a load of tripe though, I agree.

Having said that, maybe today's NOTW revelations were knocking around the scene, when it was written...
