    Yes

    Joe was unique
    Was always a fan, but looking back it's extraordinary how much stamina he had. Add in the unorthodox southpaw moment, speed etc and you have an extremely tough night for anyone

    Even Bhop admitted recently how tough of a challenge Calzaghe was

    Bivol done well with canelo, but canelo wouldn't lay a glove on Joe

    Joe in fact would beat GGG and canelo on the same night

    Bivol gives Joe a boxing lesson. Joe was a good fighter but Bivol is levels better and he’s still getting better. I don’t like his lack of aggression at times but I think we haven’t seen the best of Bivol. I think people will have a different opinion after his next fight. Bivol is very good and is the only guy with a chance to beat Beterbiev. Beterbiev knocks out Joe and roughs him up badly.

    Joe Calzaghe is not a 175 pound fighter. 168 is his best weight.

    I gotta go with Bivol. Calzaghe didnt look too good at 175, and Bivol is sharp like a knife. Hed take advantage of Calzaghes mistakes and make him pay. Bivol UD
