i feel bad for joe, a china chinned fraud and a (possible) china chinned prospect get more press than the best SMW of the past 10 years.

Exactly. If the country had got behind Joe after he defeated Eubank, I garauntee you it would have helped Joe get better matches, win or lose, he would have showed the warrior inside.

I live in London and i'd say that the average Londoner who is interested in sports would know who Joe Calzaghe and Ricky Hatton were. Outside of people with a knowledge of sports im not so sure. But the same could be said for any sports people who are not in the public eye 24/7

Norway, Germany, Denmark, Scandinavia: all the same.
Are there even real people where you live? Or are they all brainless?

I can only imagine Pac might have. Noone else.
Henry Maske was voted sportsman of the year in 1993.
And I'm afraid, he'll be sportsman of the year 2007, too.
