    Not to many Welshmen
    Calzaghe was the away fighter against eubank, woodhall and Reid, still even then it is forgotten how he fought away in Denmark and Germany as well as twice in America

    But hadn't really been noticed
    Ottke was at the very end of his career and late 30s by then
    I could give several similar examples

    twice in america once jones and hopkins were dethroned, past prime, and losing as many as they were winning.
    fear of flying?
    i don't think so.
    he flew to mauritus with his family for holidays.

    When Kessler was 33-0 I would imagine a few better. Remember what you wrote about who you beat and when? Failing to apply that here

    The only very decent victory over Kessler was calzaghe who beat the prime undefeated version

    right fighters always push themselves into a corner.
    all you have to do is carry the debate until their ego sabotages their argument.
    thanks for coming, bailey.

    Best to ignore Aussie Invader - he despises European boxers (including the British fighters) and will always disparage them.

    Nothing we say will change him - it's like trying to convince someone in the KKK to stop hating black people.

    svan and Joe were BOTH making a ton of defenses at the same time. AT THE SAME TIME. Both Joe C and Sven hurt because of their inability to square off.
