Taking early odds on the Joe Calzaghe vs. Bernard Hopkins fight....
Line em up and lay down your dough. I'm pickin one of the top 3 pound for pound fighters in the world, Joe Calzaghe.
If Calzaghe ca muster up the same effert he did when he totally destroyed Jeff Lacy, he will rip the old man Hopkins to shreds. I have not seen a man get so totally dominated for every single round as I did when Calzaghe crushed Lacy since Larry Holmes played taps and dismantelled Tex Randal Cobb's face.
Calzaghe would have done a similar distruction act on Kessler if not for 2 things. 1. Kessler is a better fighter than Lacy and it is very possible that at age 35 and almost 36, Joe Calzaghe's best fights are behind him now.
What a shame this is. Calzaghe should have come and faught in the U.S.A. and made his mark here about 10 years ago. if he did, he would have been a household name and ranked as one of the greatest pound for pound fighters of our era and one of the greatest of all time and his record bears that out.
The man is a couple wins and a year or so away from holding his title as long as the great Joe Louis did and if he had starting making his mark in the U.S. years ago, we would have had the privlege of enjoying one of the greatest for years instead of just seeing him at the twilight of his career.
