Calzaghe beat a lot of good fighters: Eubank, Woodhall, Reid, Brewer, Mitchell, Lacy, Bika, Sheika (who was coming off a win over Glen Johnson), 30-0 Veit, still-good Hopkins (who schooled Pavlik after that, let's not forget people were saying Pavlik would KO Calzaghe) and his best win: prime Mikkel Kessler.
Calzaghe had longevity and a consistency we haven't seen from Froch, at least not yet.
Froch CONSISTENLY fights top ranked opponents where Calzaghe didn't.
Plus beating Arthur Abraham, Andre Dirrell, Jean Pascal >> beating part-time male escort Robin Reid, Veit, pastprime Eubank etc...
