Enzo calzaghe has just won the bbc british coach of the year tonight, he beat billy graham, hatton's trainer and alex mcleish, scotland football manager.

for 2 out of 3 of the candidates to come from the sport of boxing shows that it's on the up here in britain at the moment!

im glad also that the BBC is actualy awarding winners, the event has been known for excluding anyone thats not english e.g when calzaghe pulled off the eubank win, they awarded rusezki a wannabe englishman who was runner up in the us tennis open!

enzo calzaghe was awarded for running his great boxing stable in Newbridge, South Wales. Training world champions like, Calzaghe, Maccarinelli, Gavin Rees and commonwealth champion Bradley Pryce, and developing future prospects like kerry hope and nathan cleverley.

well done enzo!

i'll update if joe or hatton will win the main prize later

Joe Calzaghe won the 2007 award for being the best British Sportsman, the Formula 1 rookie Lewis Hamilton was 2nd, and Ricky Hatton 3rd.

What a night for british boxing! 2 boxers out of every possible sport there is!

calzaghe definetly deserves to win it after being overlooked every year since '97! its weird after every winner has been english for so long, we finally have a welsh winner!

well done ricky hatton, joe calzaghe, billy graham and enzo calzaghe!

calzaghe was hosed last year just because the damn princess whats her name was in the running.

great to see the BBC come to there senses and give joe the title, its been long over due.

its also great to see them award winners instead of galant losers now.
