Roy Jones Jr just informed boxingtalk.com that joe calzaghe hurt his hand while in training. The fight is post poned until november.

Fnews.com
Enzo Calzaghe has told Setanta Sports News that the fight between Joe Calzaghe and Roy Jones Jr will go ahead in November, after the Welsh fighter's wrist injury led to the original September date being postponed. It was feared that Calzaghe would not be able to compete in the bout due to a hand injury, but Enzo, who doubles up as his father and trainer, confirmed that he will go through with the fight. However, Calzaghe will need time to recover from his injury and the mammoth clash might have to be rescheduled for November to give him enough time to be ready. "He [Joe] sprained his wrists on the pads," Calzaghe told Setanta Sports News. "It's one of those things you never want to happen, but it's happened. When he woke up in the morning with a swollen wrist, I looked at it and it looked bloody awful. It is a sad thing it happened yesterday and he needs two or three weeks off before he starts punching again. Everybody's gutted about it. Joe's absolutely distraught. What can you do about it? You've got to have common sense in this game. At the end of the day at this level you need to be safe."

"The Joe Calzaghe Roy Jones Fight is off, a heavy bag doing what no fighter could, knocking calzaghe out, he injured his wrist hitting a heavybag sunday, forcing the postponement of the fight. Calzaghe's attorney said that he rang me in a panic, Saying he would not be ready to fight, the calzaghe camp is confident that the fight can be put together for MSG in November, its not the first time calzgahe has had an injury in training. He has been a rock in fights though at 45-0. Calzaghe is seeing a specialisty today to determine the extent of the injury. Its not a bad strategy for letting roy jones age a little, He turns 40 in january."

This thread is hilarious, but I hope this is just a rumor. Because the last thing we all want is to have this fight canceled or postponed till next year.
