Default i thought jo made kessler look limited

usually when kess fights i leave thinking is there nothing that man cant do in the ring he looks, and is indeed, one of the most complete fighters ive seen but Calz made him look a little limited tonight this crap about kessler tired and stiff is rubbish....

Kesslers style just ran out of things to do against Jo....I guess it is really just jo having his number

Kessler fights one way and tonight that way didn't work.

Calzaghe on the other hand switched throughout the fight from boxer/puncher to brawler to outside boxer and back to brawler late in the fight.

IMO Calzaghe didn't look all that great tonight, and you got the feeling that the fight was in the books after the 6th. Kessler just doesn't have that dramatic aura about him where you think that at any moment he can come up with something big...tonight he showed nothing great about his game.

All fighters under heavyweight are limited by the fact that they can't beat Calzaghe.

I think that both his hands were badly broken, and he looked ill in general.

Perhaps blood tests will reveal something.

I would say that MK soundly beats KP every time.

He did make him look like a basic fighter. Kessler lacked variety and ability to adjust. His body punching was virtually nonexistent aside from a couple good left hook downstairs. His right hand was missing all night and he should have focused his attack down a little more.

I wonder if a different trainer would help. In the middle rounds Kessler's corner said "go get him " ... ? and later in the fight to " knock him out " .... seems to me that they could have given him a little more detailed information. Like move to your right and throw straight rights and right uppercuts and get him backing up.

Kessler wasn't backing Calzaghe up enough. He fought Calzaghe's fight for the majority of the time and no one will beat Joe that way.

You have to keep on Joe and break him down , if Joe has any *****s it is right hands that will get to him. What a great fighter he is .
