According to a report by the BBC , WBO super middleweight champion Joe Calzaghe plans to make the trip to the Fed-Ex Forum in Memphis on May 19, in order to sit ringside and watch WBC/WBO middleweight champion Jermain Taylor defend his crown against the current IBF junior middleweight champion, Cory Spinks.

Calzaghe is banking on a Taylor win to secure a potential September clash.

"My promoter Frank Warren was in the US recently to talk with Taylor's promoter Lou DiBella and they are hopeful something can be done," said Calzaghe. "I want to make it happen and I will be going to Memphis for Taylor's fight. I think this fight would be absolutely huge, rivalling anything in boxing in years, two undefeated champions very rarely get the opportunity to meet one another. If 35,000 people came to see me take on Peter Manfredo Jr, just imagine how many would want to see one of the fights of the decade."

Wow what happened to him fighting Kessler? But hey if you scared then you scared. What can you do?:cheeky4: If he does still fight Kessler he will be beat because like I said in another post. Joe is looking past Kessler and that is another reason why he will lose. :thumbsup:

taylors a bigger fight than kessler, and as much as i dont like taylor he's a better fighter than kessler to. 2 super champions fighting is great for boxing.

wouldnt the tittle become vacant and open
i know floyds got 36 days to relinquish either the 147 WBC belt or the 154 WBC belt, the same goes for taylor i think.

point being though he'd still be the ring champion even if he dont have the alphabet soups just like hop, hatton and pac. none of these guys have major titles.

I agree it is a bigger fight. Reason being because Taylor has a bigger name and won bigger fights than Kessler. But I truely feel that Kessler will beat Joe.

Speak sense dude. Hes fighting someome better than Kessler than aint ducking. Lets see then, some Danish guy only popular in Denmark, or a top 5 P4P who is very well-known in the US? I think i go with Taylor every time:cheeky4:

I am speaking sense. In another post I said that the Taylor fight is a bigger fight but Kessler still gonna whip that ass regardless of where he is popular at.

He should have fought Kessler. Then let taylor fight miranda/pavlik and then the ttwo winners fight. That makes perfect sense and everyone gets their shot. This is part of what is wrong with boxng.

Think about it. If you showcase two guys fighting and say the winner will fight so and so. Then people have something interesting to follow.

i agree with you to an extent shane, but what happens when joe beats kessler, by that time carl froch will have won an eliminator against inkin. that makes him mando to all titles. if joe fights taylor then again he'll be acused of ducking. its got to end somwhere lacy was joes career defineing fight and since then he's been made to wait for that huge money fight he deserves.

my point is joes proved he's the best for the last 10 years and he now deserves the fight with one of the mega names. taylor,hop,winky, kesslers just proved he's maybe the best of the rest and should have to wait his turn.
