Joe Calzaghe has been a Professional Boxer for well over a decade and has been undefeated in all 42 of his Fights. That's 42 wins out of 42 fights with 31 knockouts. However... I don't think he gets a very good rep from those big boxing money hustlers in America... nor does he get much attention paid to him! He got to kick Jeff Lacy's ass... but I reckon Joe Calzaghe deserves more... a hell of a lot more! I'm talking... big deals and big showdown fights... we could have "THE BIGGEST SUPER MIDDLEWEIGHT BOUT EVER" if Joe Calzaghe got to take on some really good opponent... hardly anybody in that division can touch him... where's the competition? Are others dodging him?

NO one is dodgeing calzaghe and they have no reason to. Calzaghe is a over rated fighter in my opinion. When he moves either up or down a weight and fights big names in america then he will get my total respect. At the moment i think he is just a average fighter. Dont get me wrong i like him but names like bika and manfredo wont make him a legend. I think he can beat winky wright and Bernard hopkins and they are names that will make him the legend.

Tyson are you the same guy that loves Taylor? I don't see you calling for Taylor to move up in weight.
I agree that Joe has had little insentive to come to the and US and fight but thats not really his fault for years he was calling out Hopkins and Roy Jones etc. but those guys did not see the risk factor being worth the pay off somehow we here in the U.S have this idea that untill a guy proves himself here he is not for real. I doubt that if it was the other way around we would find this concept acceptable. Joe schooled Lacy. everyone thought that Lacy was the man and now he is a has been.Hopkins is still not in a hurry to jump in the ring with Joe neighter is Taylor ,Winky etc. Joe is a huge draw in Europe and would bring great numbers no matter were he fights but the "big names" are still not willing to take the chance. Boxing is a global sport we need to remember that!!!

yes i am the guy that likes taylor. Are you the guy that always disses the pretty boy ??? lol. I no taylor hasnt moved up in weight yet basically because hes just became chamion at middleweight. Give him time and he will. Joes had 20 title defenses at the same weight and still chalenging bums (manfredo). Taylor would beat Joe if they ever fought.

taylor got pushed back by ouma who can make 147, a big supermiddle would take his his head of his shoulders. lacy would ko him.

It makes joe the best at supermiddle and Lacy still a good fighter. I like lacy and think he desserves more respect. Taylor too quick for lacy

pardon the pun but taylors taylor made for lacy, taylor fights off the back foot and hangs against the ropes, do that against jeff lacy and your commiting career suicide.

Taylor is a punk!! we already established that a few months ago!! the just gets by. lets see what he does if he ever steps up and fights Miranda

and I do agree that Manfredo should not have gotten the fight with Joe. what a missmatch.

Taylor would beat Lacy easily. And the winner of the Wright Hopkins fight could be fighting Calzaghe next. If Calzaghe gets past Manfredo easily.
