The feints did but so was the hugging. Joe ended up smoothering himself and Hopkin's obliged by holding. That would always play into Bernard's favour, but also I feel Joe lacked something that night. Be it speed, or something too. He was certainly desperate I agree.

calazaghe was a great fighter

best smw ever possibly
does he beat ward? i think he can but it would be tough ward is the best right now even more dominate than joe was

the hopkins fight was just a horrible match up stylistically , but joe would win 9/10 times
done give me the age bs joe wasnt no sping chicken
plus b hop dominated a prime pavlik his very next fight

i rate joe with a group of special fighters who dont do any one thing great but just seem to have a deep deep desire to win and are incredibly hard to beat

calzaghe
bradley
ward
floyd

not the best fighters but theyre the hardest to beat

Joe Calzaghe is an ATG and the most underrated fighter of the past 25 years.

Also to the people who said a younger Hopkin's would handle Joe. Probably, but let's not forget that Hopkin's game plan VS Joe was a perfect one. Reduce the output of both and use pin point counters or leads and hold. IMO a younger Hopkin's would have left more for Joe to hit.

- its not floyds semen, but it'll hold you over until the next time you can sneak into his bedroom and suck the jizz outta him.

Damn Speed, your going in on Negro hard.

... I have to say I agree with you though. Floyd didn't fight "whoever they put infront of him", he selectively cherry picked his opponents.

...Is Negro one of these flomo things I am hearing about.

Lets hope there isn't another calzaghe, his punches/slaps make me laugh ha
Prime RJJ would take him out early.

Wards resume is already on par with Calzaghes at 168

Kessler
Abraham
Froch
Dawson


compared to Calzaghe

Eubank
Reid
Lacy
Kessler


Wards resume will by far eclipse Calz's resume when it's all said and done. Next Feb he is gonna smash Pavlik so you might as well add him to his resume now, its just a question of formalities.

Insecure internet kids get so caught up in worshipping only the very best ever and are so quick to call a top guy trash just because one or two guys could possibly beat him in a different era. I find most of his fights (save for the ugly Hopkins one) to be fun as hell to watch. They have a cinema-like quality to them in that he had this unbreakable will to win and just flooded his opponents with workrate. I don't care what any hater says, they're not diminishing my enjoyment of those fights one bit.
