I think there are more americans that think this fight is special than
is let on. The boxing fraternity knows this is 1 of the biggest fight in
the sport right now, if not the biggest. HBO damn well better show this
fight.

Calzaghe and Kessler are both white so they can't be very good....drumroll ( just kidding )

Calzaghe and Kessler both have tremendous hand speed. Joe has been fighting succesfully for a long time, his ability to deal with adversity and injuries is incredible but sooner or later that 0 has to go if he keeps fighting real opponents. Kessler is the one who is on his way up and he has considerable talent as well. If I had to pick one I would pick Kessler simply because time and the odds aren't in Calzaghe's favour and Kessler is perhaps the only man in the division with enough talent to defeat JC.

Calzaghe by either UD or late stoppage, i think he will be too agressive and fast for Kessler.

I'm assuming you mean Mundine Vs. Calz...

Why in gods name do you think this is a more interesting matchup than Calz Vs. Kess? I mean Mundine is a good fighter no doubt, but not in the league of Calz and Kess. Please elaborate I'm intrigued

Noone bothered comment on that because the yguy obviously doen't have a clue. Kessler convincingly beat Mundine in Mundine's home and Mundine-Calzaghe is the best fight?

Not worth commenting on.

Well, if we are to make Kessler vs X.

Who is likely to present the biggest threat to Kessler? Mundine or Calzaghe?

I'm excited and think it's going to be an AWESOME fight. It's just great to see a clear cut champion in a division fight his clear cut number 1 contender. It will be the two best duking it out at 168, and for that, I thank the boxing gods.

They're both white so they're probably hypejobs.

Above I'm just saying that American fans like to watch exciting power punchers (Kessler) as opposed to quick handed people that make odd looking fights (Calzaghe). The truth is that Calzaghe is probably the favorite to win especially since his hometown is hosting the fight.
LOL!!! PBF cherry picked his way to winning 5 WBC titles in 5 different weight classes by the time he hit 30. Give me a ****ing break.

Hatton moves up to 147, and shits himself against Collazo. Has to run back down to 140 .

At least PBF rematched Castillo to prove that his gift wasn't a fluke. Hatton got a gift and ran home crying.
