    I disagree. But whatever, the fight is history now. The point only remains that to evaluate a jab it requires more than one fight. Virgil Hill's jab didn't work against Jones. Holmes' jab didn't work against Tyson. Liston's jab didn't work against Clay. One has to look at more than one fight to evaluate fighter's skills. Otherwise we could come to conclusion that Calzaghe is very poor at fighting at mid range (his favorite and best), for example, based on Reid and Bika fights.

    I thought Calzaghe beat Reid even tho he had terrible trouble with his hands in that fight.

    Anyway, Joe is the best British fighter ever, Ive always been a JC fan as he can box, fight, is fast, can take a punch, has endless stamina, is exciting & has that true heart & grit of an atg champion, which he is of course.

    Hopkins, then wright then retire undefeated as a 2 time champion, lets hope it turns out that way in this most unpredictable of sports.

    Ps. Calzaghe is also the best 168 lber ever.

    Lets not get carried away here.

    He is still in prety illustrious company in the history of British gloved boxing.
