The fight has convinced me that Joe Calzaghe is some sort of racist; maybe a member of the BNP or KKK, possibly a descendent of Hitler.

I mean I got 12 rounds of HARD evidence to back up what I'm saying!

Corrales= OK, The Ring overrated him by ranking him #5 p4p. He was still a better fighter than Lacy.

Vernon Forrest dominated a prime, undefeated Shane Mosley. Manny Pacquiao MOVED UP IN WEIGHT and dominated a great/ATG in Marco Antonio Barrera. Bernard Hopkins dominated a great/ATF in Felix Trinidad. Floyd Mayweather shutout and dropped Chico Corrales 5 times.

Joe Calzaghe dominated Jeff Lacy. Lacy was a tough, strong, young fighter, but lesser than Chico and certainly lesser than Sugar Shane, Tito, and Marco.
Hindsight going in - that is a beautiful oxymoron!

It is arguable. Lacy was the undefeated Olympian going in, he was a champion! Did you see what he did to Robin Reid! Reid troubled Calzaghe, Lacy molested him! The unstoppable powerhouse against the man who had avoided real challenges for eight years!

I mean foresight.

In hindsight I still refuse to bash Lacy. He was a pretty good fighter and a very good win for Joe.

That fight should've been stopped by at least Round 7!

so Calzaghe's a racist because he beat up a black man in a boxing match? you should keep shitty thoughts like that from the public eye for real...

I think after around round 9 or so, like Toney-Barkley.

I always thought Lacy got far too much hate for the Calzaghe fight. I think 98% of it is because the fans who picked him to KO Calzaghe early were so embarrassed at the outcome, it was easier to turn coat on Lacy than to just say that Calzaghe fought the perfect fight. Lacy showed a ton of toughness- I know Joe's power isn't what it was, but Lacy was cut over both eyes and a swollen mess by the end of it. The way everyone treated him like garbage afterwards was bullshit.

I give him props for going 12, even if his trainer should've pulled him out sooner. I hope Jeff can come back healthy and make some noise in the division.

It was awe-inspiring, nothing comes cloth this decade inspite of Lac being a slightly inferior opponent -fullstop-

It was close to boxing perfection, Winky, Hopkins, Mayweather never displayed so much in one package - though Mayweather was the closest -fullstop-
