    Lol - This is just gonna end up with the same arguments as the other 5 or so JC threads that are open. This one will never be settled. I just want somebody who reckons JC is protected and ducked people to tell me who he should've fought at SMW and didn't! And not the bullshit unfounded rubbish that he ducked journeyman Johnson

    Agreed there is some muck on his list, but Eubank, Brewer, Reid, Woodhall, Mitchell to name a few better ones, have all held one of the 4 main belts and were all as good as the other names out there, like Beyer, Ottke, Saica & Echols, in my opinion

    "TRUE!!!!"

    I will mention that Calzaghe is a great fighter.I always like watching Calzaghe,he has a great chin and a great boxing brain to match there's no dought about that.I think Calzaghe will yet prove again what he is made of and give Jones and his fans(lovers and haters)a great display of his great talents!!!!


    I'll miss him when he retires(Whenever that is)

    Best chin in the game!!!!!

    But in 45 fights 21 world title defences are Eubank,Reid,Woodhall,Mitchell,Brewer,Lacy,Kessler and Hopkins enough in a 15 year or so career?

    Best thing Calzaghe did was beat an overhyped Lacy. Kessler was a quality opponent, and that is as much props as i will give him. In my opinion he also lost a slap competition agaisnt an old man (b-hop). Now he is fighting another old man and calling it a day... Yeah real hall of famer there
