We've done this before but it appears some new fans have forgotten or dont know.
Okay, please anyone use facts
to defend this record:
This is between his fight with Chris Eubank(1997) and nearly 10 years later Jeff Lacy (2006) who by all accounts is a bum but at the time was an undefeated contender that was someone that Joe should have fought. I'm going to comment on some of these but in reality all of these could easily have funny comments next to them:
2006-03-04 168 Jeff Lacy (Bum/Never was)
2005-09-10 Evans Ashira (who?)
2005-05-07 Mario Veit (notable because it took place in Germany)
2004-10-22 Kabary Salem (notable because it took place in Scotland which technically is another country lol. Also Calzaghe went down in round 4 and was headbutting intentionally and penalized for it.
2004-02-21 Mger Mkrtchyan (Great name. Who the ****? Also notable for being held in an ice rink in Wales).
2003-06-28 Byron Mitchell (Calzaghe down in the 2nd)
2002-12-14 Tocker Pudwill (i'll let the name do the joke here)
2002-08-17 Miguel Angel Jimenez
2002-04-20 Charles Brewer
2001-10-13 Will McIntyre (Notable for Denmark)
2001-04-28 Mario Veit
2000-12-16 Richie Woodhall
2000-08-12 Omar Sheika
2000-01-29 David Starie
1999-06-05 Rick Thornberry
1999-02-13 Robin Reid (Many people think he LOST this fight. Regardless it was a close fight)
1998-04-25 Juan Carlos Gimenez Ferreyra (Ice Rink hahahaha)
1998-01-24 Branko Sobot
1997-10-11 Chris Eubank (Weight drained, way past his prime)
Really? That makes him an ATG? This record? But wait he was afraid of flying.
Or was he?: Calzaghe only afraid of flying when it came to fighting"
I guess I'll wait for the usual folks to try to defend this.
