Default Hatton comeback just answered the Calzaghe comeback question.

For those of you asking if Joe C should come back and try his hands on Ward.

We're not even sure how he would do against Abraham or his former victim Bika. He's been too far from the sport and 4 years certainly deteriorated his body.

The guy had his time. He was given a chance to do what he can. In fact he had a much longer career than most where he's at the top.

They are world's apart and how Hatton carried himself while away and how he prepared for the return, say absolutely nothing about how Calzaghe would do.

One thing is constant though, no one is the same after they leave.

I didn't even know there was a Calzaghe comeback question. It should be obvious to everyone that a return would be disastrous for him and his legacy.

There was a thread started months ago asking that specific question.

Both Hatton and Calzaghe has lived pretty reckless lifes since leaving boxing, atleast as far as I know..
Ideally a boxer should always respect his body and life a healthy lifestyle.. You can't stay away from the sport for that long while not taking care of yourself, and then expect to come back and win fights.. The sport of boxing is simply too demanding for that.

So they got caught doing cocaine. Big deal. Why assume it was a problem? It's a pretty casual drug despite its legal classification.

Maybe because Ricky was a coke addict who went to rehab...

although both did drugs and drink after retiring, at least calazghe kept in moderate shape. Hatton was walking around like a light heavy weight.

After Ward beat Froch, Calzaghe said on his website that he could have beaten Ward when he was active - having not seen the comment myself I dont know if this was in response to a question or whatever - and after Ward beat Dawson, Ward's camp said they wanted a fight with Calzaghe. This, of course, led to a bitch-fest between Calzaghe-fans and Ward-fans over who was better and who should do what and so on.

Calzaghe has since moved into being a trainer and will never return to the ring as a boxer - which is the way it should be.

Not really, i think the fights were there for Calzaghe to take in 09/10 at light heavyweight but he didnt. How good would it have been for him to finish up with Pavlik, Dawson and Froch. Obviously ignoring logistics for a second that would have been fantastic.

He'd lose to Ward without question, but unless he's put on something like 70 or 80 pounds and stripped it off with a crash diet, he'd look better than Hatton.
