The generally accepted super middleweight GOAT vs. the generally accepted current number one in the division. In light of all this chatter about where the Mexican fits into All Time Great rankings, let's first resolve if he first off has carved an equivalent legacy to and secondly if a case is to be made for him triumphing head to head over the reigning historical king of 168lbs. Their respective ledgers at SMW: JCC Jr. Rocky Fielding Callum Smith Avni Yıldırım Billy Joe Saunders Caleb Plant Gennady Golovkin vs. Paul Hanlon Paul Mason Spencer Alton Martin Rosamond Darren Littlewood Karl Barwise Mark Lee Dawson Tyrone Jackson Stephen Wilson Anthony Brooks Mark Delaney Tyler Hughes Chris Eubank, Sr. Branko Sobot Juan Carlos Giménez Robin Reid Rick Thornberry David Starie Omar Sheika Richie Woodhall Mario Veit x2 Will McIntyre Charles Brewer Miguel Jiménez Tocker Pudwill Byron Mitchell Mger Mkrtchyan Kabary Salem Evans Ashira Jeff Lacy Sakio Bika Peter Manfredo, Jr. Mikkel Kessler Now, obviously that's a tremendous difference in quantity in Calzaghe's favor - 32 bouts versus 7 - but admittedly with a low concentration of quality throughout most of it, maybe half a dozen, or 18%, of those being victories to write home about. Most would probably agree their greatest respective victories at the weight are their last (in Álvarez's case, latest to date) - that is, Kessler and Golovkin. Some might argue that Golovkin is the overall better scalp than Kessler - but is that more in a prime for prime sense comparing GGG at middle with the Viking Warrior at super middle, or do really mean those specific version of them, on those nights? Is there anything in Álvarez's style that would bother Calzaghe? Would his relentlessly aggressive counter-baiting and body punching accomplish what 32 other individual couldn't (46 men if you include Calzaghe's forays into light heavy) or would Joe's awkwardness do its usual dastardly work and disrupt the more conventional boxing of the much slower-footed and to a lesser extent slower-handed mega-star? For those who deign to already place him above Calzaghe on their all-time p4p rankings - is that just because he started out his pro career a drained teenage welter and picked up some belts along the way on the climb up while gaining his man-strength? If you consider SMW his true natural weight and the destination he was always bound for early on, how does his form at 168 compare with past greats like Ward and Calzaghe? What puts him in their company or suggests he would clear their rosters, or defeat either in a time machine?
