Wait till he gets that fight at 175 and obliterates whomever.
I'm a huge Calzaghe fan but if you don't think Daswon will give him trouble you're kidding yourself. Dawson is a big strong LHW with good movement and power he will give Joe fits especially at LHW.

I reckon Jones can still do it despite being washed up.

Oh I voted for Dawson. I'm a fan from that fight against Adamek.
That would be a tough fight to predict and should be made asap!!!

Then by that logic you must think Joe is utterly shit.

For the last time Jones can't beat Calzaghe. A prime Jones could but not this current version gun shy and with no legs Jones.

Pretty much, and he feels Hatton is an elite P4P talent, capable of defeating Mayweather, when realistically, Hatton won't win a round.

I think it's best to ignore his nonsense, he knows very little about boxing claiming that Jones can still pose a threat to any top fighter.

IMO Calzaghe-Dawson is one of the biggest and best fights that could made in boxing.

I agree with you and it's a fight where Dawson has an excellent chance and it will be very close either way, this is the type of fight a true Joe Calzaghe fan should want for Calzaghe.

Woods, giving Calzaghe the WBC, sets this fight up to more of a reality. Hopkins is far past it and a prime Hopkins loses to a prime Calzaghe anyway, quite handily.

115-113 ish either way, wouldn't bet on it like I've done with every other Calzaghe fight. Joe's made me a couple thousand dollars between Lacy and Kessler, this would be really tight.

However, I could make a more accurate prediction after seeing Joe at 175, against Woods. I could even probably tell you who should be the favourite.

Both stylistically cancel each other out because both styles trouble the other, that's why it's so interesting.

Yeah I agree with you it's really a close fight. I see the Woods fight as a waste of time since we all know Calzaghe schools him but I understand why he feels he needs it. The only thing Joe will get out of it is to see how his body feels at 175.

You're a bit of a dick aren't you? I actually think Mayweather will win but you're telling people I'm picking Hatton.
