    It's an ugly fight like all Ward fights were, but Calzaghe has too much of a motor for Ward in my view. The output would be reduced, but you cannot stop Calzaghe throwing and he is fast and throws in combination and wouldn't be stopped. Totally different to say Kovalev who plodded and still won many a round against Ward.

    Calzaghe was a different level to these kinds of fighters. Calzaghe from 30 until the end was peak Calzaghe and he was exceptional. Ward has good stalling tactics, but you cannot prepare for a Calzaghe style as there is nothing like it.

    Two of the greatest ever super middleweights facing one another would have been an epic and compelling fight. It would be a close and tactical affair with both fighters trying to adjust to one another.

    If I had to chose it would be Joe but Ward was a great enough fighter who could win this.

    I think Ward wins in a close but decisive fight. I think that Joe has enough output to win some rounds, but Ward was the master at beating people at their own game. I think Ward would fight in spots to steal rounds. Joe would throw a lot of punches but Ward could block most and counter a lot of them with the bigger and sharper punches. Joe would certainly frustrate Ward during the fight because he doesn’t really stop throwing, but Joe doesn’t have a big enough punch deter Ward from anything.

    He’s got every right to say that and he may be right. I’m just not sure. Ward was a top top fighter with very few ,if any flaws.
    And although Joe was a supremely quick and skilful fighter, let’s not think Ward wasn’t skilled either.
    It may not mean much, but one thing makes me think. Would Ward have had as close a fight with an old Bernard Hopkins as Calzaghe did?
    I firmly believe this is one of them where you could a perfectly reasonable argument for either of them.
    Would’ve been a very interesting fight though.

    When Calzaghe fought Hopkins he was near the end of his career at light heavyweight so I believe that would be an unfair fight to make a comparison.

    I am sure Ward would try and use the same tactics to slow the fight down because no one can keep up with the work rate that Joe possessed. Conversely Joe would know that Ward will fight in bursts and not allow him to steal the rounds.

    It would be a close tactical affair which could be decided where the location of the fight was fought.
