Calzaghe fights like a queer punching his way out of spiderwebs. That's one reason not to like him.
Never mind the fact that he is part of the grab-a-belt-and-defend-it-indefinitely system, and one of it's poster boys. Zolte Erdei and Dzindurak come to mind as similar fighters in that regard.
I guess all of this is justified because he managed to get two wins in a row over American ATG's on their soil to retire on, at the tail end of his career. In retrospect, retiring off of a Roy Jones win (and still got knocked down in the process) looks bad. Especially since Rjj was now being used as gate keeper/stepping stone for C level guys a few fights later.
*Sidenote*: *Keep in mind that I'm one of the guys who just defened The Klitscho's in the other thread for pwning America by going up against their main superstar on May 4, not caring for their market or it's fan base.
