Exclamation Biggest fight of 2007 Calzaghe v Kessler or Hatton v Mayweather

Folks,

I read the article below am wondering what the Global consensus of opinion is with regard to which is the biggest fight for 2007 Is it Calzaghe v Kessler or Mayweather v Hatton?

(Please exclude Hopkins v Wright - a good fight but a bit slow)

Obviouslly I'm bias to Joe "Great Guns" Calzaghe v Kessler but am curious as to the general consensus of opinion around the world.

I'm really looking forward to the 3rd of November. Without doubt Joe will stun the world, show his brilliance and give Kessler a good beating.

However I am also looking forward to watching Hatton v Mayweather. Without doubt Mayweather is a more skilful boxer than Hatton but I love Hatton's aggresive style, he's like an armour plated tank that continually throws sledge hammer punches.

So, in my opinion I'd say the biggest fight for 2007 is Calzaghe v Kessler with Hatton v Mayweather a close 2nd

Regards,


John

The Hatton fight is bigger but only if Hatton wins.

Hatton v Mayweather is "bigger" in the literal sense becase the protagonists both more "popular" world wide than the other two.

Conversely I think that Calzaghe v Kessler is second only to Pacman v Marquez II in terms of quality, taking into account every fight that could be made today.

I'm not so sure mate, SWMs are usually bigger than welters.

Hatton Mayweather is much bigger. P4P #1 Vs P4P 4-6 or so. Calzaghe Kessler is two guys who are P4P 10-15 or maybe just in the top 10.

Floyd vs DLH was the biggest fight in 2007 and in the history of the sport...but Joe vs Kessler will be the most important fight b/c it's beteen two champions on similar levels....Hatton vs Floyd is between two champs on vastly different levels.

Make a poll.

Calzaghe-Kessler is the most interesting one, and perhaps biggest for boxingfans, but not the biggest one for the wider public.

"If Hatton wins it is bigger" Good one!

People that claims DLH/FMJ was the biggest fight of all time need to do some history analysis.
In terms of Importance Floyd vs DLH wasn't anywhere close to the importance of Ali v Frazier 1 or Louis vs Schmelling 2. But we are not talking about the most important fight in this year or in history...we are talking about the BIGGEST fight....Which means how much revenue is generated from one event, how many spectators attend, how many people view or buy the fight at home or in other avenues.

So with staying on topic....DLH vs Floyd was and is the BIGGEST fight in 2007 as well as in the history of the sport of boxing. If there wasn't "Public desire" for the fight it wouldn't have been the most watched fight in the history of boxing and it wouldnt have shattered the revenue numbers that were previously left to HW's like MT and Holyfield.

Hatton vs Mayweather isn't even Mayweathers biggest fight of 2007. I am really looking forward to Pavlik vs Taylor and Calzaghe vs Kessler.

PBF vs HATTON definitely if you're comparing them with Calzaghe/kessler, but 2007 belongs to ODLH vs PBF

PBF-Hatton is bigger.

But the best fight of the year quality wise so far was still Marquez-Vasquez. Hopeufully we will see some of the same fireworks this time around.

Agreed. This Kelso guy is a nobody. Joe's just fighting this eurobum as a convenient excuse to duck Glen Johnson again.
