Reid was better and had a better punch then Kessler. You guys really have to study Kessler opponents to see that he is not nearly the puncher. He got skills but they are nothing spectacular and prime Reid was better.

Their punch is close, but a better punch does not make you a better boxer, imo their skills level is not even close.

Kessler won't be Calzaghe's biggest win - It will be his first defeat.

Reid had skills and reflexes, I am not saying Kessler is crap, he will definately be better then Lacy against Joe(based on his style alone) and he is big and strong fighter but his offensive arsenal is limited(although what he does, he does very good given his ability) at best and he is not nearly as quick. I might give him a slight edge in movement over Reid but this is under a big review as well since I did not watch Reid's fights in a while.

I think Kessler will be Joe's second hardest opponents, mainly based on the fact that Joe will study him better then even Lacy.

I've never been impressed with Reid, yea he beat Calzaghe but that does not mean he was great.

Kessler reminds of a big Barrera with better defense and a better jab, Reid or Calzaghe never been technically solid like the way Kessler is.

I will put any amount of cash against any limey or Cal fan that wants to put some cash against me, Kessler will win this fight pretty easily.

LOL, thats just wrong. Kessler does not move Like MAB, he does not throw hooks off off jab nor does he throw any sort of counter uppercut the way barrera did.
