calzaghe wouldn't drop a round against taylor, hop fought two very close fights which i think they split and a third would be close also, winky was robbed in there first fight and i think he could win the next time, id take kessler to win a close uninspiring ud over taylor, taylor would bore me against tarver in a fight i couldn't care less who won, rjj would dance around him winning a close ud. and he may scrape a draw with clinton woods.

as you can see tyson im not a fan of taylor ive seen him fight 4 times joppy,hop twice and winky and he's showed me he can go with a 41 year old with deminished reflexes a 154 guy who manhandled him and joppy he beat who is a bum, the only thing i give taylor credit for is boring me.

his record for his last 3 fights should read 1 win and 2 losses. joe calzaghe is the best fighter from 160 to lightheavy by an absolute street.

taylor

i would agree with you. joe calzaghe would give him a hell of a time and calzaghe would win. winky got robbed and should have won the match up. and for the rest i dont think it'll be easy tasks for taylor. he has a weakness and hop and winky made him show it.

Does anybody realize that Taylor is being trained by arguably the best trainer ever. Stewart is with out a doubt the best in the game right now. so all the fights that Taylor had in the past you can just forget about them. I dont think we seen anything yet. Even the Winky fight he was only trained for 4 week with Stewart I believe.

Hopkins3 (Taylor ko10)
Winky2 (Taylor ko8)
Calzaghe (Taylor ud close)
Kessler (Taylor ko5)
Tarver (Taylor ko3)
Roy (Taylor ko9)
Woods (Taylor ko3)
1 more for you Jeff "Left Hook" (Taylor split D)

Taylor KO Hopkins? Never! Hopkins beat him both of their fights, I don't care what the judges say.

yes Taylor will ko Hopkins because Hopkins is on the same path as Roy Jones Jr. He jumped up to light heavy and now he want to to heavy. when comes back down to middle or super middle he will be done. A shell of him self.

You know Hopkins really won't right? He's just talkin the talk and not walkin the walk. Hopkins beat Tarver easily, I think he could handle Taylor one last time.

You say Hopkins is..............
and he's showed me he can go with a 41 year old with deminished reflexes

Is this the same guy your hero is challenging? 2 years later :dunno:
What does that say about Calzaghe?

well he does have the best trainer in the game. but your right dmedal he's not in the ring fighting. But you have a trainer to make you a better fighter and to prepare you for the fight. the better the trainer the better the fighter can be.

i knew taylor is being trained by manny but sop was hamed before losing to barrera, if taylor wants to stay unbeaten he should have no part of calzaghe because he wont win a round.

by the way guy's this fight should happen next year at some point, taylor is the guy joe wants to fight stateside since hop rulled himself out.

hey prettyboywho, you can have a great trainer and probably become better,but either way you put it its always the fighters ability to go in the ring and fight. maybe have a bad day or good. who knows???

calzaghe dominates all rounds against taylor.

Trainers are a vital part of a boxers career, but when it comes down to it the fighters are the ones who make all of the money for the team. ;)

Didnt Steward just come in for the Barrera fight?
I think that was a bad decision by Hamed to try & change his style etc. If its not broke dont fix it.
