    Default Kessler-Andrade March 24th

    March 24th has supposedly been set as the date for the Kessler-Andrade fight.

    A rumour suggests it could be on HBO after all.

    Should be a great fight. I've only seen Andrade fight once, last time out against the Alien. It was over so quickly you couldn't really tell anything about it.

    Looking forward to it though, and credit to Kessler for once again fighting the the best in the division, (at least the best that is willing to fight him), no Peter Manfredo's for Kessler!

    As a Calzaghe fan, I have to grudgingly go along with that

    2 reasons why i im really glad about this fight; 1 andrade sounds a good fighter and it should be a good fight 2, he is a golden boy fighter, so i was pretty certain it will be on HBO!

    Kudos to Kessler for the fight. The fight was won by a Danish outfit was it not? I don't see HBO going to Denmark!

    HBO had a full production team in Denmark for the Kessler-Beyer fight and then only showed 30 secs.

    Anyway according to Mr. Palm the date was selected because they were in negotiations with a US TV-company which had an open slot on March 24th.

    Who knows.

    This is going to be one of the most exciting upper division fights in a while. Both guys could be stars in America if they had more exposure.

    I got no call on this fight, yet. I need to review more of Andrade's fights. He's looked good in the couple I have seen. But I want check out more. Mad props to Kessler. He ain't taking the cowards way route like Calzaghe is.

    none of these guy's are in calzaghes class both if any of you guy's have ever seen kessler fight you'll know he's b-level. a win over markus beyer doesn't make you a superstar, when calzaghe was fighting lacy both these guy's wern't quoted, ive seen kessler fight about 12 times although he dopes have good power and a descent jab a fight with joe would be another 120-108 fight or even a late ko.

    If Kessler is B-level, how would you describe Calzaghe's average level of opposition since becomming a champ? C-? D?

    Me thinks you are looking at Kessler (If you have in fact seen much of him) through taintet glasses.

    Cause Bika and Manfredo are definately A- Class fighters right?
    Calzaghe has great skill in the ring, but he only fights twice a year,
    he only has ONE name on his record that is even worth mentioning
    And has backed out of more fights than ANY Champion I have ever
    seen (Johnson, Hopkins, Johnson again)

    How do you compare Jeff Lacy to Kessler? I think Kessler is well
    better than Lacy.
    For every story told that divides us, I believe there are a thousand untold that unite us.

    He's good, he definately needs to tighten up his defense though and he's a little slow.

    Honestly I don't think he can better Kessler yet, but he's earned his shot, and he's gotta take it..

    Bottom line, my opinion:

    Pros
    ===========
    Great power in both hands
    Hell of a beard

    Cons
    ===========
    Leaky defense
    Doesn't let his hands go enough.


    For every story told that divides us, I believe there are a thousand untold that unite us.

    Calzaghe back out of the hopkins fight
    For the 1,000th time. Yes. Let me break it down for you

    Calzaghe: Ay Hopkins, I need to stop facing bums. Your 40, but still a name. I'll give you 3 million. Let's fight. But it's got to be at 168.
    Hopkins: 168? I can still make 160
    Calzaghe: Don't you want to fight for the WBO Super Middleweight title?
    Hopkins: WBO still in buisness? What fighters they rank?
    Calzaghe: Yeah they still around. They got me facing future HOF's like Will McIntyre, Tocker Pudwill, Miguel Jimenez. Need I go on?
    Hopkins: Please don't. Anyway I'm not sure if 3 mill is enough for me to move up in weight and give up my titles. I am 40. You know. Plus I made more knocking out Trinidad
    Calzaghe: I know your 40. I love facing old shot fighters. I'm not saying your shot. Just old fighters are easier to beat. Come on, let's do it
    Hopkins: I tell you what. I'll say yeah for now. But give me 2 weeks to sign the contract. If something better comes up. I'll take it. Is that cool?
    Calzaghe: That's fine. If you can get more money somewhere else. Go ahead. I understand. It's all about the chedder. And don't worry about me. I won't say anything bad about you.

    De La Hoya: What's up Hopkins? I'm trying to make history let's fight?
    Hopkins: You want to fight me?
    De La Hoya: Yeah, why you got anything lined up?
    Hopkins: Not really. Calzslapply, Calzcrappy. Whatever his name is wants to fight.
    De La Hoya: Really? You going to waste your time with him? He's garbage
    Hopkins: I know. But it's an easy 3 million. Did you know the WBO is still around? He's there champ
    De La Hoya: 3 million? And you got to move up in weight? Just to fight for the WBO?
    Hopkins: That's the plan
    De La Hoya: I'll give you 10 mill. And we fight at 160.
    Hopkins: Alright. Joe said he understands good business. Plus I can always ko him later

    Hopkins: Ay Joe. No deal. Oscar wants to give me 10 million. To fight him
    Calzaghe: Oscar? You mean Oscar Del Hoya? O'h my God I love him. I got his record album. It's good
    Hopkins: I'm sure it is. Anyway we cool?
    Calzaghe: But what about me? Fight me. I need the exposure
    Hopkins: Tell you what Joe. Since you came at me first. I'll give you a chance. Give me 6 mill. And it's on.
    Calzaghe: 6 mill? I don't think daddy Frank will go for it
    Hopkins: He got deep pockets
    Calzaghe: But he's a cheap bastard
    Hopkins: Just do it
    Calzaghe: Okay, but if he says no it's okay with me. I understand you fighting Oscar. I won't talk shit. Just do me a favor
    Hopkins: What's that?
    Calzaghe: Get me Oscar's autograph?

    Calzaghe: Ay daddy. Hopkins wants 6 to fight.
    Warren: I know. Oscar's offering 10
    Calzaghe: So we going to do it
    Warren: Hell no ! You want to get your ass kick? You can't win. You see the plan was never to fight Hopkins. We just wanted to make it seem that way. I knew about the De La Hoya fight all along. So we make Hopkins a lower offer. He rejects it. And we tell everybody he scare of you. You understand? That's call making you look good
    Calzaghe: I see. Thank you daddy. I never wanted to fight Hopkins anyway. He's scary. I heard he went to jail
    Warren: He did
    Calzaghe: By the way, daddy. Guess what
    Waarren: What?
    Calzaghe: I'm getting Oscar's autograph
