Default I shat myself during that fight!

I tell you what, that was one hell of a fight. Kessler really tagged Calzaghe hard in the fourth or something. Jesus, I thought that was it. Kessler punches ****ing hard... This guy beats EVERYBODY else at 168 (including the middleweights moving up) and I'd make him favourite against most at Light Heavy. He's a warrior, has tons of guts and has good skills.

It took someone as good as Joe Calzaghe to beat him. It was 50/50 up until the halfway mark and Kessler must have thought he was going to win but Joe's change in tactics was brilliant and just at the right time.

I for one, thought that it would be a lot easier than it was but Jesus, I've never been so worried during a Calzaghe fight.

Massive massive respect to the Dane and all his fans, of which I now consider myself one of.

Yeah, those uppercuts Kessler caught Calzaghe with...well, I thought Calzaghe was in real trouble at that point. He stepped up the gears and changed his approach and proved how good he really is.

I'm a WAY BIGGER fan of Kerssler now than I was. Big credit to his decent fans and himself for providing a good s****. Kessler should have no shame after this.

Well done Calzaghe

I too was terrified in round four! Kessler is an animal, He is definately the future of smw. But Joe is Undisputed Champion now and I don't have to have a fat chick avatar

Most of my predictions contained that sentiment - I knew the fight wasn't in doubt although Kessler impressed me with the punching ****nal he had.
I predicted more or less the same as the fight turned out but I didn't expect Joe to be rocked as much... Must have been 4 times.

Yo pride, didn't you get the feeling that JC was going to get KO at some point? I always had this tingling sensation in my stomach like Kessler was going to tag him with something big and knock him the **** out. I still get the feeling like he would in fact, KO JC in the rematch but it has to be immediate, no bs fight after JC gets old and slow.

I think Kessler will have alot of new fans. Great fighter and a seemingly level headed guy. Look foward to possible Kessler - lacy/froch/pavlik/taylor/mundaine 2

He must've said it tonight, the universe would implode if he didn't. Duke lost his ****ing mind in Calzaghe-Lacy ''He's gone! He's gone Jim!!!! Come on Joe!!!!''
