On a more serious note, he does have several flaws for Kessler to exploit.
  • He gets hit with too many right hands (can attribute this to his being a southpaw)
  • A lot of the time he circles left instead of right against orthodox boxers
  • He is wide open for a big counter whilst throwing his combos - is far too relient on his opponent not punching back
  • He's slower than he used to be
  • Can "lose his head" if he gets emotionally involved (See Bika)
  • Can switch off during the fight causing him to lose a round here and there
  • Hand injuries
  • Will stand toe to toe after getting tagged - suicide against a guy like Kessler
  • Going back to emotion, he'll be pinging with adrenalin with the massive crowd behind him. The pressure won't get to him but the atmosphere could make him open up too soon.

I'll probably cry if Calzaghe loses.

How can you say his chin is a weakness? You are a cretin

He slaps... if he hits, it still hurts.

One dimensional! Idiot.

Yeah, Amsterdam, are you growing a little worried about this?

I mean, even with your confidence level regarding a Calzaghe victory, you have to have at least a tiny bit of doubts or some anxiety.

Sounds enough to underpin a Kessler victory

Actually, there is one weakness:


1. Inability of the boxing public, mostly Americans, to properly appreciate Joe's talents


Not really sure if you can put that on Joe, but it is a 'weakness,' I guess.

I've a feeling it's going to be a dark lonely journey back to Denmark, without a current World Champion THN.

I need to stop posting when I'm dead tired and listening to sad songs, actually. Calzaghe will win by domination tonight, I am fully confident.

If he were to lose, it would do nothing to his H2H status for reasons I'll only discuss afterwards.
