Default If you were a SM, would you fight Calzaghe or RJJ?

You're a rising SM contender, RJJ and Calzaghe are the champs. If the money was the same for either, which champ would you challenge?

calzaghe easily. can't handle lateral movement, lacks knock out power, and is one of the most overrated frauds to ever grace the ring.
you're basically asking me would i rather face this

Calzaghe I guess...

Both will probably hand your #ss to you, but RJJ would make you look stupid in the process also.
On the other hand is that tiny chance you can beat RJJ with the luckiest of lucky punches, or he hits you when you're down in wich case you can pull a Dirrell

More chance of beating RJJ with a lucky punch.

Calzaghe just cannot be beaten at this weight. If you knock him down, he's just going to get up and kill your ass.

Surely it depends what type of fighter you are?? One punch slugger with solid chin and I'd take my chances with RJJ.

Most other style and I'd choose Calzaghe.

Roy would not only outclass me, but he'd hurt me pretty bad, too.

So I'd pick Calzaghe. Prime for prime he's a league below Roy, and therefore I'd have a better chance against him.

Personally I think I could take a prime Calzaghe but RJJ would be a tougher proposition. So I would take on Calzaghe.

Calzaghe for sure.. Both fights would make me silly no doubt, but theres just more risk of getting knocked the **** out by Jones than Calz..
