Default Joe Calzaghes face...

Yup thats right, you read the thread title correctly, its a thread about Joe Calzaghes face. You dont know what Im blabbering on about? Well let me explain...

Im talking about Joe Calzaghes face when Enzo Mac was being counted out by the referee. Hes looking up at big Enzo Mac, & when the ref calls the fight off, Joe has a face like thunder then turns around & walks away.

& thats what this thread is about, Joes face at that particular moment the ref waved off the fight. Now was Joe pissed off at the fight being stopped? Or was Joe pissed off with Enzo Mac that he lost the fight & thats why he turned away with THAT look on his face.

I have replayed the incident a good few times & am leaning towards the latter, each time I watch it I am more sure that Joe Calzaghe was pissed off with Enzo Mac, rather than being sad that his stablemate had just been defeated. Now if Joe had any concern for big Enzo, why did he just turn around & walk away? Was it cos Joe was angry at Maccarinelli for letting his father down by being defeated in such a spectacular manner?

Im just speculating of course, but have a look again for yourselves & study Joes face as he watched Enzo being counted out, & tell me what you think was going through Joes mind just before he walked away, & tell us what you think!

I haven't seen the fight yet as I am on nights this weekend, but I reckon JC's reaction was probably a mixture of both. Mac said himself that Enzo was going to be mad at him. Maybe JC was more mad than his dad?? Oh wait, no that can't be possible. Enzo Calzaghe is as mad as a can of beans!!
I reckon Enzo beat Mac up after fight worse than Haye did!!!

As soon as i read the thread title i knew what u was on about..i spotted it straight away when i watched the reply next morning..Joe had a face like thunder and i believe it was cos he was pissed off with big mac for 'not fighting the plan'..

Joe didnt once try to get the refs attention by shouting or arguing with his decision to stop the fight..he simple shook his head in disgust and walked away..thinking to himself .'why the fcuk didnt u listen to us Enzo'

At the end of the day Enzo is a decent boxer but lets be real his not up there with tbe Bells Mormecks and Hayes yet. His best foe to date prior to Haye was Wayne Braithwaite..

When it mattered most Enzo was found wanting. No shame there.

Taking into account his inactivity and one fight per year the logical answer has to be no. But he still has a case because of his longevity and tenure as the champ when he unified with Mormeck. Bell is still a force to be reckoned with and one of the more harder punchers in the division. Had that been Bell holding that title rather than Mormeck Haye would have been put to sleep.

I think the fighters in Enzo's gym are very close knit and involved in eachother's preparations for their fights. This fight was a big deal from the moment it was signed and Joe Calzaghe was obviously hoping his mate would go out there and perform on the big stage.

The realisation that Haye was simply far too quick and strong for their boy to handle must have been a real sickener.

Joe's facial expression didn't change the whole time when he was stood up and glaring at Enzo. If he'd have been pissed off about the ref stoppage, I would've expected a "what the hell?" kind of reaction or body language, rather than keeping the same one.

So yeah, I agree.

I think Joe was angry that Enzo lost, but also embarrassed for both Enzo and Calzaghe Sr. You could also throw in the fact that Macca was one of Joe's favourite sparring partners and was going to be a big part of the training for Hopkins, and now that can't happen for a while (BBFC block on knocked-out fighters fighting for 30 days I believe).

I knew what this thread was about before I clicked on it. My old man pointed it out when we watched the replay together on Sunday.

I may be wrong (and maybe I'm being harsh) but my first thought was that Calzaghe looked disgusted at Enzos performance, like he was gutted he was associated with it in any way - even just as a flag carrier.

Possibly with the mark-up on the alleged 'ticket gate' saga.
