Calzaghe To Kick Off a New Hit Series on BoxNation

LONDON – Undefeated boxing great Joe Calzaghe will kick off ‘Fighting Back’, a hit new series debuting on BoxNation this Friday, ahead of Bernard Hopkins’ world title showdown with German contender Karo Murat.

The first instalment of the series features the Welsh pugilist as he looks back over his historical victory over the eternal Hopkins, who became the oldest world champion ever at 48 when he beat Tavoris Cloud for the IBF title last March.

The show will go in-depth, providing a never before seen insight into one of British boxing’s most memorable nights, as Calzaghe gives a unique round-by-round breakdown of how he systematically beat the self-styled ‘Executioner’.

Heading into the fight in April 2008 many believed Hopkins’ experience and overall ring craft would finally crack the Calzaghe puzzle and add the first loss to his illustrious record.

However, despite this, it was the Welshman whose hand was raised at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, winning a closely contested matchup via a split decision.

It is only now, after seeing the phenomenal achievements by Hopkins, who bounced back by winning three separate versions of the light-heavyweight world title, that this remarkable performance can truly be put into context.

Hopkins will once again look to defy mother time as he takes on the sturdy Murat, live and exclusive on BoxNation this weekend, with his IBF light-heavyweight title up for grabs.

‘Fighting Back - Calzaghe v Hopkins’ debuts on BoxNation (Sky Ch.437/Virgin Ch.546) at 7pm this Friday followed by ‘Uncut: Hopkins v Cloud’ at 8pm.

Watch Hopkins v Murat live and exclusive on BoxNation (Sky Ch.437/Virgin Ch.546) this Sunday at 2am. Visit www.boxnation.com to subscribe.

Only a Hopkins fan or Hopkins himself would say what you just did. Hopkins landed the right hand in the first round because Calzaghe didn't have any sparring partner to prepare him for Hopkins leading with the head tactics. Once…

Calzaghe was and is one of my favourite boxers because he had style! Man had style, a joy to watch.
