Trinidad on resume and accomplishments. Multi division world champ and beat some great fighters. But it is close. Calzaghe really is a better fighter than Tito, he is way to skilled to get outclassed by anybody in the way that Tito was vs Wright, and Calzaghe could maybe surpass him i fhe beats BHop and Dawson/Pavlik-Taylor winner

As of right now who's your pick, and I think that "resume and accomplishments" are what makes an ATG's so it shouldnt be that hard of a choice

its Tito. Calzaghe stepped it into high gear a little too late in his career

Calzalghe is actuall a better all around fighter, but I would have to say Tito..

Won his first 20 Title fights
Won 5 World Championships in 3 weights
Just about fought them all

Weakness is his retirement, but when he comes out of retirement he faces:
Mayorga, Winky and Roy Jones (I mean who does that).

His legacy is that of the "ultimate warrior"

IF Tito beats Roy, he will call out Calzaghe.....This guy is tough as nails.

tito would get it because of all the names he's beaten over the years , delahoya, vargas , and he's a multi divisional champion , but joe could still top him in the future , joe's been on a roll since beating lacey , then beats another good fighter in kessler , if he fights and beats some guys like tarver , glen johnson , chad dawson ect then he could edge tito as a atg but as it stands i think tito would get the nod over joe

Joe has been more dominant, but Tito has beaten the better fighters by far.

Man close one but gotta go with Joe the clincher (for me) is that Joe hasn't been beaten ( fairly heavily) twice

Two great fighters tho !

This is a tough one but I got to go with Tito, better resume, multi division champ and has fought the better competition win, lose or draw. Its a slight edge but its enough.
