Default Benn ''I wish I had Calzaghes power'', talking about prime Joe.

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

Link to hear Benn discussing Joe Calzaghes power in regards to his punches bouncing off Eubank.

This was the prime Calzaghe he spoke of before he was the brittle boned tactician who destroyed Jones/Hopkins/Kessler etc

Calzaghe was always quantity over quality, he was called a 'slapper' early, just re-watch the Eubank-Calzaghe fight and you'll hear it discussed in the commentary. His power was never massive, although he was heavyhanded

If you're a Calzaghe fan, the most miraculous thing about him is the pace he fights at and the variation in that pace, which makes it hard to throw him off his rythm

Power is by far and away the most overrated ability in boxing

Despite proof right in their faces, Calzaghe haters are still willing to pull the wool over their own eyes to hate on Joe.

46-0

Can't imagine Calzaghe hitting harder than Benn tbh, but he is/was the better fighter and would of had his way with Benn in a H2H.

Although I remember Eubank saying Calzaghe hits a lot harder than it looks.

Roy Jones Jr had an iron chin before CalJackhammer ruined him

Afternoon No Fear, hope all is well pal


By all accounts Joe had respectable power, I'd say Froch and Kessler are bigger punchers than Joe, however it's Joe's delivery and speed that would cause problems, he floored Eubank because he hit him with a punch he never saw coming.

The most difficult thing about Joe was disturbing his rhythm consistently to stop him fighting his fight, the closest anyone came to doing that was Hopkins.

Hopkins a G, slipping all the punches just to finish with a headbutt
