Default What do you think Calzaghe should do now?

What job do you think would be good?

He comes across as big ego, chippy and pretty negative about most other boxers.

Tough one....

nothing-retire and enjoy his money.

he does not come accross as a good ****yst for tv.
i doubt he has any financial skills for business.
just do after dinner talks /take it easy and live life very comfertably which his boxing career has afforded him.

So he has a big ego and puts down other boxers? Sounds like 99% of all other boxers.

I think Calzaghe has always been bitter about the fact that his fellow countrymen, seemed to be far more recognized and revered than he ever was. I remember him complaining about being in the shadow of Naseem Hamed, and that the media/public fail to show him the same support. Also recently in that cocaine flop, he was protesting Lennox Lewis' position as the number one British fighter:

"I should be number one! Look at his record, 42 won and two lost. That's a disgrace. He's been down twice. I'm the only undefeated fighter!"

His **** of a dad Enzo is no better either, when speaking of Khan he said:

"I wouldn't touch him with a barge pole, I don't want him in my stable. I don't think he's a class fighter, he's manufactured.".

His resume for a so called legend is pretty poor, hence the reason why he failed to attain the recognition that he craved so much. He complained about it then, and he appears to be complaining about it now even though he's retired. As a person I never did like, and now it's becoming clearly evident why. He'll be as sour as ever if the likes of Carl Froch (who's no better by the way) and Amir Khan go on to do well in their respective divisions, and earn the respect (that he lacked) from the American public.

Bitter *******

Bingo. He doesn't NEED to go out and do other ****. Just invest conservatively and life is made.

I can see him possibly coming back if there's a big enough fight, he shown signs of being very bored now he's out of boxing. He done the celeb party circuit for a bit but that novelty may soon wear off.
