Calzaghe is clearly the greatest. It is debatable-ish who the best is though, you can make a small case for Jones there.

WTF!!!!! are you serious? how the hell is calzaghe the greatest? cause' he beat a "green" jeff lacy? or a washed up Chris eubank years ago? or get a suspsiously early stoppage over a "tv made good" fighter in manfedo? there is no comparison here fella Roy Jones is light years ahead of the brit on any subject discussing greatness!

If Calzaghe beats Kessler, I will consider him the best 168 pounder ever

you ever heard of Joe Calzaghe? After he beats Kessler there will be no doubt. Joe Calzaghe is the premier fighter in the world today. Calzaghe would knock Roy Jones out!

RJJ was definitely the better fighter than Calzaghe or anyone else at 168 that I can think of, but I have to agree with the above statement that he wasn't at SMW long enough to be considered the greatest of all time.

I was referring more on a P4P, head-to-head basis rather than accomplishment accumulation.

You may as well ask who's the greater fighter, rather than who's the greater supermiddle.

such a stereotipical anti calzaghe type saying if you watch him from the early career to now you will know calzaghe is the best natural 168 pounds
