Rewatching Bernard Hopkins Joe Calzaghe

Posted 06-05-2008 at 09:13 PM by warp1432
I rewatched this fight today and it simply amazes me on how people don't give Bernard credit. Same with Calzaghe I guess, but Bernard just gets ridiculed for this fight.

The way people talk about this fight was as if Calzaghe clearly won. I gotta say, he didn't clearly win. Hopkins clinched and netrulized Calzaghe. He landed good shots on the inside including the right hand. In round 8 he actually was trading and keeping up with Calzaghe's pace. He landed the better shots on the inside and made Calzaghe missed for a lot of that round. Calzaghe had a really good flurry at the end and he did chase Bernard around the ring. So it was a close round.

I can see people scoring this fight for Joe either 114-113 or 115-112 (rouind 7 was another round you could give to Joe), but no more then that. Bernard clearly won rounds 1, 3, 5, and 10.

He's 43 years old and made the bout highly close, interesting, and competitive. Give him some respect.
