Default Is Joe Calzaghe an all-time great?

He's generally regarded as the greatest super middleweight of all-time, but some people don't think he's an all-time great.

What do you think?

Considering the 168 Pound weight class has only been around since 1989 thats not a good feat. That divison best fighters ever are Benn, Jones Jr, Ottke, etc...


Hes not an ATG.

Im confused on how to judge ATG. Are there different levels of ATG? He's definitely not an ALI, SRL type of an ATG thats for sure sure.

I think a good limit to judge whether a fighter is an all-time great would be the top 50. It's up to you, though.
