Default Is Enzo Calzaghe this years Ferddy Roach

Having watched tonight’s card I feel I have had an epiphany.

I believe that the biggest factor in the ultimate success if a boxer is his coach. I work with a guy (Jack Graham). He is not educated, he is not the most articulate guy you will ever meet, but he is diligent, dedicated and totally focused. If a clever guy understands a concept by reading it once Jack simply reads it three times. The first time I met him I knew he was the real deal. In the future you will know the name Fundo Mhura, no matter what anyone else might tell you other than Fundo himself, the man responsible for his development is Jack Graham. Having looked at Jack I believe understand what is required of a coach.

The key to dominating a sport is to first of all understand and emulate the current received wisdom and then find an edge. Something that is the next evolutionary step forward. It might be the beer goggles but I think form watching tonight’s card that Enzo Calzaghe is a Genius. He has found the next evolutionary step.

I would love Jack Graham to speak with Enzo Calzaghi.

If you are a young pro who has real ambition “Go west young man”

A lot people said that if Enzo got Rees a win tonight then he should be considered a miracle worker. I think he's undoubtedly one of the best around right now. His record speaks for itself.

You have to give him credit. I guess he's a breath of fresh air because he wasn't really immursed in boxing from a young age - maybe he just has a different perspective.

A good coach could produce a world champion in a public toilet.

Did you visit the old gym?

From reading Joe's book didn't Enzo learn to train off watching Leonard tapes?

I lived for 20 odd years in Newbridge and went there a few times, it was right next to my school. It really was the pits. What was even more staggering was when the council knocked it down and refused to build a new one because "there was no need to". ****ing idiots.

Enzo is one of the best trainers in the world. He was in Joes shadow but Joe gave him the limelight to get other good fighters. Now he has proven he is a true world class trainer. His record speaks for itself - domesitc to elite - Enzo has em!

Yep and don't forget his record training amateurs. Given he never boxed himself and came to the game late the man deserves massive respect.
