Default I have not an ounce of nerves

My nerves for this fight weigh less than Mikkel Kessler's pants. I have never been so sure of a Joe Calzaghe win as I have this time around.

The weigh in serves to tell me that Joe's training camp has been nailed. He's lean, he looks furious, intense, confident and up for this. Joe has exactly the same demeanour as when he fought Mario Veit the first time around. Over confidence? Perhaps. I think it's more likely that he's absolutely on the edge... brimming and ready to fight tomorrow night. This is a 100% focused Joe Calzaghe... a rare animal indeed. One that hasn't been seen more than 3 times in a career. Having seen all the shit from today, I have no doubts that this will end early in a Joe Calzaghe TKO.

If he loses then I will be astounded and shocked. I simply cannot see that happening but if Kessler proves me wrong then I will be the first to applaud him.

I don't think you can count out Kessler already just because of a weight in. The way you can count him out if he looked drained. I think they both look good I wouldn't be surprise if Kessler wins tomorrow.

Thats a good sign - However Kessler has stated that he is 200% better than when he fought Andrade. So Joe being 100% might not suffice.

The human form can only ever each 100% of it's own potential.

No two humans are of the same potential.

Kessler's "200%" better may mean that he reaches his own 100% for the first time, or fall short.

I don't think that Kessler's 100% is as good as Calzaghe's 100%.

Boxers state things all the time - half of it is horse-shit (note the hyphen).

I just go by what I see.

When this fight was signed, I thought it would be close on points.

When I watched a couple of Kessler fights, I was impressed but still stuck with my first thoughts.

I then watched some Calzaghe fights and Kessler fights back to back and went for a Calzaghe UD.

Having heard Joe in the last few weeks and speaking to a couple of people in the know who know better than me, I changed to a TKO.

Todays weigh in only serves to add weight to my claim as Joe's in the best shape of his career.

Two boxers who are great mentally and in peak condition. One with home advantage where he thrives and the other with experiance of going in the opposite corner and winning.

Great styles with very ko records and good chins. Both top of thier game and the best in the division.

It looks to be a damm good fight and I am looking forward more the christmas.

JC is Welsh/Italian and Kessler is Danish/English so i'm not nervous, just hoping the best guy wins.

This would be correct, but since either of us haven't seen Kessler at 100% as of yet, it might be too much for Joe(as I clearly stated - might being the keyword). It's fairly safe to say that Joe has peaked, and can only be on decline.

Just like the Indian Ocean rains which have 2 monsoon seasons, Joe will rise again and demolish anything alien in his path.

Could be - if he beats a Kessler, who thinks he is twice as good as in his last fight, then Calzaghe's feat will be even greater.
