The US view is that it's a compelling fight in a division we don't follow too closely. Looks like a great fight to me.

I'm looking forward to the fight. It's two of the best duking it out in their weight division. What more can you ask for?

I'm leaning a bit towards Kessler as I prefer fighters with good technical skills. Calzaghe definitely has faster hands and speed kills, but a good jab can always neutralize that.

Should be a good fight despite whom ever the winner is. This one's more than likely to go 12.

I see it as a great fight between the elite of the 168 class. Its a shame the average American dont know the huge implications of this fight. They have been brainwashed into thinking that boxing is a dying sport.

This fight is far more interesting than the endless inbred matchups going on;

Taylor-Hopkins, Taylor-Winky, Winky-Hopkins, RJJ-Tarver, Tarver-Hopkins. Any boxing fan should be glued to the screen or watch it live.

I'm an American fan who follows the super middle weight division contently. I think American boxing fans that have watched both fighters lately prefer Kessler. Calzaghe gets hyped up by Brits like he is the most exciteing fighter ever when the truth is he's a cherry picker who has only fought one fighter in the ring's top ten in all 20 title defenses. PIn addition he has a sissy slap fighting style that doesn't really appeal to most American combat sports fans. However, Kessler hasn't got much US exposure but, damn is he exciting.

I know I have said it before, but my view is the winner is just holding the belts until that corp of young Americans come take them
