Its hardly a 'big' myth, not many people even know who Calzaghe is. He was largely unknown in Britain until Lacy and Kess.

he wsnt a weak puncher, he just used slaps as a tactic when his opponent was -

1. too slick defensively for him to land on cleanly (eg Hopkins)
2. too skilled offensively for him to outbox (Kessler)
3. too poor to put up a fight (most early defences)

People say it was the damaged wrists, but to be fair,if they were so bad he would have packed in a boxing career long ago.
