Assuming we're still talking about Joe Calzaghe and not E. Honda, I think a pinpoint lead hook to the body followed by an uppercut to the head, repeated over and over between, through, and around each "lightning slap", would do the trick.

In the other case, I think a low sweep worked.

A prime Toney is way too good for Calzaghe. Not 120-108 good but probably 118-110 good.

So Joe Calzahge is a prime Roy Jones now????

C'mon man....let's stop this madness.

So James Tony was a stationary fighter against Barkly and Nunn??? Have you only seen him as a Heavyweight.

Toney in his prime was way more dynamic, quicker, accurate, and powerfull. Not to mention his D and reflexes.

Joe undoubtedly gets caught with some good shots, possibly even decked, but overall he wins on points due to imposing his style and scoring more.
Joe is no defence wize he would get cracked HARD with counters all day.

Why do people get so worked up about fictional matches? I can understand getting worked up over a POTENTIAL match up but some of you seem to be losing the head with each other over stuff like this and at the end of it all, NOE OF US WILL EVER KNOW!!

Boxing's great isn't it.

Are we talking about the same guy that I saw Lacey beat like red headed step child in Tampa before 20,000 at the forum?

You must be kidding.

But that can be timed, and Toney threw excellent and accurate combinations in his days.
