The fear of flying has been debunked because he was fine to fly across the Atlantic when all the American hotshots turned 40something.
It wasnt the flying he was afraid of, no it was something else.
But to put Joe C in context, he was the defender of a minor, unknown, unwnated title for his career, his title only became significant in the last 2 years he had it. So for a minor title holder he actually did very well. Imagine an IBO or WBU champion today putting in 20 defences, even agaisnt crap opponents, it just wont happen.
The only problem is when Calzaghe fans try to pretend that a minor title holder can possibly be the best SMW ever. It just doesnt hold water.
