Joe Calzaghe: A Good Fight, But I'd Beat Andre Ward!

By Edward Chaykovsky

Very confident about his chances, retired Joe Calzaghe (46-0, 32KOs) believes he would have beaten WBC/WBA super middleweight champion Andre Ward (26-0, 14KOs) if they would have fought each other in their primes. Calzaghe retired in 2008 after wnning a twelve round decision over Roy Jones Jr. in New York City. Ward is regarded as the best super middleweight in the sport and one of the best pound for pound fighters in boxing.

"I would have beaten Ward. Like I say, people can judge styles, but I can adapt to every style and mine was harder to hit. I think Ward is good in his comfort zone, but I would have got him out of that and wouldn't have fancied it. It would have been a good fight. There's no ego. It is belief. I think it would have been a chess match," Calzaghe told Sky Sports.

I would have absolutely loved to have seen this bout. Now this would be a superfight.

Calzaghe fought the longest list of bums and nobodies i've ever seen for a champion him and Zolt erdie or whatever the hell that light heavyweights name was. They ought to be ashamed of themselves especially about taking advantage of these simple fans who see them look great against cans and thin...

I think Calzaghe was very overrated..his win over hopkins was most impressive win..but I think ward handles him rather easily..I never thought he was that great..he didnt fight enough tough opposition.

Joe wins this fight. He's too fast, smart, skilled, active for Ward and will win a decision 8-4 or 9-3. Calzaghe is one of the best SMW ever, the only opponent I could see beating him in his prime is RJJ

It's a very very simple one. There wasn't and isn't a Super Middleweight in the history of boxing that can beat Joe Calazaghe.
