The Joe Calzaghe deception: The night Hopkins was robbed
Don't shoot the messenger guys. I actually had Calzaghe winning the fight. But I wanted to see what you all think of this guy's claims. It's a very biased, 6-part YouTube set showing why/how Hopkins really won the fight. This guy is obviously obsessed, but also very passionate and makes some decent points.
Here's the first video. The other's can be found on YouTube. Take a look if you're EXTREMELY bored.

You can edit youtube highlights to make anyone look like they won a fight.
Joe was fighting in Bernards house. Ciaz sr let Bernard do his usual bull**** all night, when he had broken Hatton off every time he tried to get some work in against Floyd a few months earlier.
Joe beat Bernard at his own game on his home turf. Anywhere else and it would have been a Calzaghe UD.

Joe Calzaghe adjusted to Hopkins awkward dirty style and won the last 8 rounds.
He clearly won that fight.

Just one year earlier Calzaghe wrote in his book that he found Jones to be an over the hill fighter and past his best. He had got knocked out by 3 of his last 4 opponents (as far as I can remember).
Workrate is whats gets it done for him but that ***** shouldnt even count if he's not connecting.

B-hop didn't win that fight and was clearly beat.

Calzaghe won the fight, but barely. I don't want to watch some edited highlights as that says nothing about the actual fight.
On a RBR basis I had Calzaghe winning by 1 or 2 rounds (can't quite remember, but Hopkins looked the better boxer for sure. For some reason around the 8th round Hopkins looked like he was looking for a way out and calzaghe pretty much swept the board from that moment on.
Not sure if Calzaghe landed some body shots that hurt Bhop or not, but he seemed troubled when he went down for the "low blow".
Shame calzaghe didn't do more earlier in his career. He could have been beaten by Hopkins/RJJ/Toney but we'll never know seeing as Warren kept him in Europe fighting for the most part C fighters.
