Frank and Calzaghe made offers to fight Ottke in Germany, Ottke refused every offer. Take a look.

"Here is a serious offer to Ottke to face Calzaghe," said Warren, "I'm looking for the fight to take place in Cardiff but Joe is more than happy to face Ottke in Germany, his own backyard."

Also, did you know that Calzaghe was scheduled to fight the winner of Sheika-Johnson, and Johnson lost. Sheika won then Joe fought and beat Sheika.
