Thumbs down Would Calzaghe have KO'd Kessler?

If the ref hadn't broken them up?

2:40 in Kessler visibly shocked by a body shot. 25 - 30 seconds left in the round. Ref literally pulls Joe off a helpless Kessler.

Kessler should have been throwing body shots when he fought Joe. I think he literally only threw one body punch. Can't slow down Calzaghe without some body work.

Kessler said he was hurt to the stomach and didnt want to go down. I think Kessler would have fought through the pain and stayed up.
I dont think Kessler would have been stopped. Kessler was in his prime and getting what will almost definately be the biggest fight of his career.
Kessler is a real warrior

of course. look at the devastating power that he knocks out his opponents with. any other ref that calzaghe had in britain would've stopped the fight after he lnaded his first 3 slaps on the gloves

Calzaghe couldn't KO Kessler if he was standing in front of him handcuffed.

I was a big Calzaghe fan and overall it was a great performance but no, I don't think that Kessler gets KO'd by that mix of styles. Too much grit at that point. Good win for Joe, but points was always on the cards and was a fair result.

Kessler looked winded but nothing drastic enough to get stopped, hell I don't think he would have even taken a knee

Kessler has never been dropped, he is more tough than given credit for.

Something like that.

Kessler came into the fight with a rib injury and Joe just hit the sore spot there, but there was never any chance of a stoppage.
