Nigel was always a joker He was joking about Calzaghe Power ROFL

Oh & BTW Calclappy did NOT beat Bernard Hopkins Slappy Joe got a gift decision he did not deserve. Hence his refusing Nards offer to fight a rematch in Wales. Slappy knew he's get Executed !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow,
I have never seen this before. Hard to believe Calzaghe punches harder than Evander Holyfield.. This video doesn't lie though, the proof is in the pudding.

Yet again ESB is plagued by latent homo***uality manifesting itself in the form Joe Calzaghe idolizing.

Reminds me of the time I saw Benn in London. I asked him for his autograph, he said "No problem come over here mate." I shouted "I don't want it that bad!", and walked away. I''m pretty sure that guy must have been pretty embarrassed.

Its obvious. Once these fighters feel the power they cover up, hold for dear life and go into survival mode. Look at the proof. Hopkins held, Manfredo didnt even try and punch because it got too much and just tried to cover. Watch the fights

Eubank had lost a close decision to Collins, that many thought he won, had a couple of tune ups and rematched Collins to a SD, had a couple of tune ups and lost clearly to underdog Calzaghe. After that loss Eubank went up to CW and challenged world champ Thompson losing a very close decision and then rematched Thompson losing on injury when ahead. Thats Thompson who years later past his best KOd D Haye.
Consider Eubank only had 2 losses to one fighter when he fought Calzaghe, the second by SD to a world champ and was 31 then went on to challenge a big CW flooring him etc, how past his prime do YOU think he was?
Remember Kessler is Wards big win and was the same age as Eubank here and had around the same amount of fights, so is Kessler shot as well, because Kessler has a serious eye problems and was an unwell double vision suffering fighter who has not been real active for a while now due to his injury


Remember when you make silly comments about losses was G Johnson considered past his prime when years ago after losing to Hopkins he went 7-9-2 including the Hopkins loss

Eubank had time to prepare and wasn't weight drained against Thompson , and he still LOST, twice. Bring up the scorecards for those fights.
Haye was handing Thompson his ass till he gassed out.

Eubank was a SMW who attempted to fight a massive punching CW.
Your're right Eubank wasnt drained. In fact he put weights in his clothes because he was so small compared to Thompson, yet he still put Thompson down, gave him a tough fight and was ahead, before the injury in the rematch.
Comapring prime Thompson who eubank fought to past best Thompson, Haye fought is ridiculous and that past best Thompson stopped Haye in 5 rounds

Shouldn't there be times though when he knocks someone so senseless that they can't cover up and hold on for dear life?

Zaggers had Glass Hands. If not for that misfortune, he would have had more KOs on his record. As it stands, he still managed to finish as an undefeated ATG. Unbelievable.

He meant the style, Calzaghe able to hit hard from elbow or shoulder but Benn's hardest shots coming from foot.
