The Calzaghe camp do have their champions, but how many will there be in the next few months. They have some hard fights coming up, most on the forum predicted Haye would beat Enzo. Ree's has a tough fight, Lockett was knocked over by Ryan Rhodes, and he is not a known puncher, so Pavlik is going to be extremely difficult to beat, and Hopkins has a good record against southpaws, so maybe just maybe JC could have a very bad night...

Rhodes had a decent punch on him years ago at LMW. Not seen much of him since though, has his power declined ?

i love watching ryan rhodes fight. at times when he lets his combo's go, he can look pure class...

It all went downhill after Hamed prophesised that Rhodes would one day be a world champ (after he lost to Otis G)

Alot of the guys from the Ingle gym relied on reflexes to keep them out of danger which as any boxer knows is very risky when you have an almost non-existant defence. Rhodes is one prime example, it's a brave style to have, however not as brave as walking into the ring with the words 'SPICE BOY' emblazoned on your trunks.
