Well done to you guys who predicted a Calzaghe points win.


yeah...yeah....yeah I lost my money..... But I tell you what, when BHOP knocked Calzaghe down in round 1 me and the old girl, were jumping and screaming (I would have pocketed just under 70k from a couple of bets, for a BHOP ko) but it was just not meant to be.


I think Calzaghe proved that winning is a aquired habit and he showed the true heart of a champion and did enough to take the victory.

Thanks TG....to hell with the money ;), the money would have went to her head(she started praying when I told her we needed a BHOP KO).



Sorry Gucci store owner, cancel the handbag orders.... Maybe next time.




IMO Calzaghe style, gave him the advantage in this fight, he was able to bank the points with his higher output, while BHOP could not land regularly with the key punch against southpaws (Right hand lead).

calzaghe went into full slap mode and won the fight. i scored the fight the same way byrd did. 114-113 hopkins.

How many times are we gonna have to read this slap mode crap over the next few days? The man who landed over 100 more punches won the fight, end of story. Hopkins lost due to lack of work, you can't land 10 shots a round and expect a decision, irregardless of how clean you think your work was.

It was close but Calzaghe was the winner the way I saw it... He was missing many punches but he was more active.. and well compubox showed he was not only throwing and landing more but he was more accurate..
It was a close fight, and it looked like BHOP would win in the first third of the fight, but Joe turned the tables and showed tremendous heart.

I've watched it twice the first time i scored it 7-5 for Calzaghe , the second time i scored it 6-6 which would equal a b-hop win. I may watch it again tomorrow and see what i come up with. Either way it was close fight that could have gone either way.

Come on CJ, Hopkins winning by 1 point is no robbery. The judges obviously just preferred Calzaghe's quantity over Hopkins quality.

Calzaghe jabbed his head off the last 6 rounds. Hopkins landed 5 eye catching punches the entire fight, Calzaghe landed 4.

Hopkins held for 12 rounds, when the fight was in the open he knew he was getting picked off, clearly.

they weren't punches dude. they were slaps. how else can a man be hit oh so much yet not have a scratch on him? hopkins had absolutlely no swelling whatsoever. calzaghe did what he had to do to win, and that was to play patty cake.

Giampa's 116-111 was a travesty

hopkins did enought to warrant a decision, but i wouldn't classify it a robbery either.
