Prime Qawi would cut the ring down and brutalize both Hopkins & Calzaghe, however Qawi lost his legs after he lost to Michael Spinks and i would fancy both Hopkins & Calzaghe to out-point that version of Qawi.... at Light-heavyweight Qawi was known as Dwight Braxton - The Camden Buzzsaw!

Qawi would have his way, he was too strong and he was hard to hit.

I think he beats up on Calzaghe after he gets used to the activity, a fight with Hopkins would be close and probably depend on how you judge a fight on who you thought won. I'd lean towards Qawi beating up Hopkins enough to get the decision

at light heavy i think he beats both though i wouldnt bet against bhop,if they met a catchweight of 168 i would definitely favor hopkins but i think he beats joe either way

Qawi beats both of them.

You can match up a prime Calzaghe though at 175 under the old weigh-in procedures. Calzaghe had problems making 168 for awhile, 28-30 hours before the fight. So logicially you figure that under the same day weigh-ins he'd be fighting at 175. He definitely would have had to in the late 70s/early 80s, since there was no 168 lb. division anyway.
