Calzaghe wins 10 rds but the fight ends in a draw on Canelo/Oscar's scorecards.
Byron Mitchell, Kessler, Eubank, Woodhall, a few stinkers as well
He was a point away from drawing with a 40 something Hopkins on my card.
Exactly becuase he didn't allow the other guy to shine,
Before the brittle hands he was a machine.
Calzaghe treats Alvarez in a very different way than what he has been accustomed to. Sweeping a decision 9 to 3 or 10 to 2 in rounds.
No chance of a stoppage.
None at all…….
I don’t see it at all.
Not unless it was a ridiculous one.
Calzaghe is too big and strong. There’s no way a guy with a frame that much smaller is taking all those punches without being hurt (and/or cut)
Golovkin hit much harder than Calzaghe and Canelo was never hurt by him in 24 rds.
Canelo looks very strong and durable, and Joe wouldn’t have thrown many power punches.
Most of his shots were point scoring ones.
We also don’t know if Joe would have been very cagey, or if he’d have gone all out and just bombarded Canelo.
