Pretty simple really. What does jones need to do in order to beat calzaghe...what gameplan can he employ?
By far the most effective fighter against calzaghe was hopkins in their recent fight.
Should roy adopt a more negative and dirty style like hopkins in order to try to beat joe?
As of yet, we dont know what it would take to beat calzaghe, just as we dont know what it would take to beat mayweather either, both fighters are undefeated...but the only person who looked like he caused joe all sorts of problems at first was hopkins...
So should roy jones try to adopt a very negative/dirty approach to the fight to stop calzaghe from finding his range and getting his flow going?
The best way to weather calzaghe's storm is to stop him from throwing his large combos and flurries of punches, hopkins did this very well by using clinch tactics and then didnt trade with calzaghe on the inside either, he simply used the counter, although ultimately calzaghe found a way around it and started to boss the fight.
So what tactics can jones employ in order to beat calzaghe?
I would say that for the first 4 rounds jones should be very negative, if he can do what hopkins did, this would ruin calzaghes mindset as well, it would be very demoralising for him.
Then from rounds 4-8, after confusing calzaghe and ruining his flow and confidence he could start trading with him (something hopkins did not do)...this would then give roy the edge because he would be fighting a confused and demoralised calzaghe rather than a fresh one.
Any other suggestions?
