Joe IS Newbridge boxing gym, no way on hell he lets his next fight slip.

Lets face it though Enzo got beat by the best in the division, but is still top 5.

Rees really shouldnt be fighting at 140, but he got a chance and took it and the rest is history as they say. I thought he fought valiantly tonight though, no shame in his loss!

Maybe it will deflate luigi calzaghe's ego a bit. His son is the star..not him.

Joe's a different league, nothing to worry about here just because Enzo had a couple losses.

All I will say is this. He arrogantly proclaimed to know how to beat Hopkins after watching just one video. I wonder how many videos of Haye & Kotelnik he watched.

Enzo Calzaghe was alot more laid back after the Rees fight compared to his shouting after Enzo Mac lost. Can't see Calzaghe Jr losing, but if he did, that's 3 world champions lost within a few months, must be some kind of record. Then it would be upto Lockett taking on Pavlik. Still it was refreshing to see Lockett being interviewed, he was very down to earth and certainly not under any illusions of the task in front of him.

Rees showed the same problem as Macca: backing away in straight lines with hands low and chin in the air.

Joe Calzaghe is Rees or Macarinelli but next month he faces a truely great fighter for the first time in his career albeit an over forty past his best best. I am picking Executioner to execute Joe Calzaghe as Joe's busy southpaw style is made to order for Hopkins the best fighter in the world today against southpaws.

I'm not sure he's telling the truth here, he'd be pretty stupid to truely believe that anyway.

I know that Joe has been watching Hopkins for years anyway so even if his father hasn't I'm sure Joe knows what he needs to do.

hopkins is very good, however, joe aint your average southpaw. southies tend to throw straight lefts and circle onto the orthodox fighters jab, joe goes both ways and hooks with the right more than most wrong uns.
the other thing is how much b hop has left. the fight with tarver was like watching two old men.
that said, i agree, this will be a tough one for joe, although not as tough as kessler imo.

Calzaghes elite. If he loses, he loses, not because something went wrong but because it wasn't his night. Joe won't lose though. He doesn't know how. He has more passion ringside then his team mates have in the ring. Joe has true fire in him that will show when he puts it on Hopkins.

i think people are over rating hopkins, hopkins age will finally show in this fight and hopefully he'll consider retiring
