Default joe calzaghe vs roy jones is the modern day rocky marciano vs joe louis

joe louis black american past his prime against undefeated fighter.
roy jones black american past his prime against undefeated fighter.

rocky marciano undefeated fighter with italian heritage
joe calzaghe undefeated fighter with italian heritage

rocky marciano's biggest name on his resume is louis and that's the fight he's known for, it will be the same for calzaghe.

Roy is nowhere near as shot as Joe was for that fight. Not even close.

roy jones is well past his best. no matter what, roy jones stil got knocked the **** out by glen johnson and antonio tarver. he is shot enough to lose to a vastly inferior boxer in joe, just like joe louis lost to an inferior boxer in marciano.

First off, your not giving Calzaghe enough credit.

Second, Joe looked like an old man in his fight against Rocky. He was inactive, out of shape and tbh did not go out there to win the fight.

Completely different scenario here. Roy is physically still in very good condition and, although against questionable opposition, is coming off 3 straight wins. Roy has no financial problems and is fighting for the primary reason that he thinks he can win.

This fight bears very little resemblance to Louis v Marciano.
