Calzaghe would beat Sven Warddke even now.No way Sven Warddke is fighting Joe,he is as scared as his master Ottke to fight Joe.a more desirable fight for Warddke is if Sven Ottke would come out of retirement and fight him,but the thing is Sven Ottke would too shatter his disgracefull glass jaw and beat the shit out of him !

Even if Joe did come out of retirement would Ward come to Wales?

No point. He would lose to Ward.

Every Calzaghe thread I enter, you are in it hating. You've made a thousand posts in just 2 months on esb, all hating on Joe Calzaghe. Whats going on dude?

I noticed you were also in the RDJs noob troll thread crying like a little bitch wanting posters banned, why would you be doing that? Have you been banned under another identity and now your trying to get others banned for similar offences?

As Lincoln once said:

Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt


or in Joe Calzaghes case:

Better to remain undefeated be thought overrated than to fight Andre Ward and remove all doubt.

This will literally sky rocket Joe's legacy even higher. He would be known as the former great champion who came back and defeated the CURRENT great champion. Could make a few million from this fight.



Cons
- Might become addicted to boxing again.
Although I believe Joe can beat Ward even now,I think if Joe goes through the entire SMW division a 2nd time it will take too much out of him at this stage. That being said, when he beats Ward he might become addicted to boxing again and want to fight longer and longer. Eventually leading to a fluke loss, which might be hard to recover from when you are in your 40's. We don't want to see him like Roy Jones Jr.

Look at Roy Jones, his legacy diminishes with every loss and sleep inducing coma KO he receives.


IF JOE come back, beat Ward and RETIRES again, that will be perfect.









I'm not going to say health risk because Ward's punches can't hurt anyone other than a drained Chad Dawson. So Joe's health is not an issue here.
Um, Joe would be drained too if he fought Ward at 168.

And tbf, Ward is almost as slick as Joe, has similar handspeed, prime for prime, and is like 13 yrs younger and prime.

I don't think Joe could beat Ward today, even at LHW.

If I thought like Joe then no. He didn't fight anyone during his first run, why start taking chances now?

Is dinovelvet possibly a herolgee alt? Made so that he can now slate Joe C from behind two different accounts at once?

Don't really know many of the regulars on here but couldn't help but notice this guys incredible obsession with hating Calzaghe. I get the feeling he is an alt but don't know who?

Has there been any notorious long-term Calzaghe haters on esb that have recently been handed bans? Think that would definitely fit this dudes profile.
