Default Calzaghe

Did Calzaghe hold his world title longer than Joe Louis hold his?

I think Hatton held his WBU World Championship Title even longer is that true?

I don't know, but I hear he holds the comp-u-box record for most slaps landed in championship fights.

No. Louis held it longer (though he was largely inactive due to WW2) and made more defenses.

Do not ever put Louis and Calzaghe in the same thread! JC does not equal Jesus Christ

Louis still holds the record for longest title reign. Holmes is up there as well.

Calzaghe was a great champion. Lots of natural talent.

Nobody in the community takes these titles seriously, and yet they somehow play with this concept of "defenses. "

Louis. That was real.

WBO super-middle title doesn't really count as much as UNDISPUTED heavyweight championship.

In fact, Calazghe didn't even beat the WBO champion, he won it vacant from a past prime and late-sub Chris Eubank.
