Calzaghe’ record title defenses is a sham. This is from the beginning of his WBO "title" reign to his unification fight against Lacy.

Chris Eubank- lost for the second time to Steve Collins 2 fights before and didn’t win after Calzaghe, so you can determine he was done. 36-0-2 in his first 38 and 4-5 in his last 9, 0-3 in his last 3, Calzaghe being one of em.

Branko Sobot- 14-1 when they fought, that one loss was to Hacine Cherifi 3 fights before the Calzaghe fight. He ended his career 19-11 you do the math.

Juan Carlos Gimenez Ferreyra- was in his 16th year in pro boxing, shot, and never a world beater. He lost his very next fight to a 100+ fight Jorge Fernando Castro.

Robin Reid- chosen because he'd lost a fight before to Thulani Malinga by UD. Still gave Slappy one of his closest fights ending in a split decision. Reid also lost his next fight against Silvio Branco by UD.

Rick Thornberry- Slappy decisioned a guy who had gotten ko’ed by Henry Wharton(who?) and Colin Wilson(who?). 2 fights after the Calzaghe loss, he was beaten by Sven Ottke, 2 fights after that getting knocked out by Mundine.

David Starie- ko’ed by Dean Francis(who?) and lost his last fight (a couple years after Slappy) to Sven Ottke.

Omar Sheika- entered the fight 20-1 went 7-7 fighting mediocre competition after it.

Richie Woodhall- lost one fight before Calzaghe to Markus Beyer retired after it.

Mario Veit(2x)- beat on tomato cans only. Still, he was rematched for another shady "title" defense.

Will McIntyre- lost 5 fights before (his fight with Slappy) to Dana Rosenblatt before and fought only once outside of Louisiana and Mississippi and it was against... Guess who?

Chareles Brewer- was 2-2 in 4 fights before (his fight with Slappy); one where he was decisioned by Sven Ottke and the other a KO loss to Antwun Echols. Calzaghe won by decision, Brewer went 3-2 after the fight, 8-6 overall.

Miguel Angel Jimenez- never fought anyone (nevermind beat anyone) to deserve a title shot and lost his very next fight (after Calzaghe) to Brian Magee(who?) and retired

Tocker Pudwill- lost a fight a couple years earlier to Sven Ottke and lost his very next fight to Vinny Pazienza

Byron Mitchell- lost the fight before (his fight with Calzaghe) to Sven Ottke and the fight after it to Richard Hall. 0-3 before he retired.

Mger Mkrtchkian- he was knocked out in the first by a Dennis Inkin with only 1 pro fight (compared to his 6), didn't fight, nevermind beat anyone, to get a "title" shot.

Kabary Salem- lost the fight before to Mario Veit and was tko’ed in 4 by Lucian Bute in his very next fight. Calzaghe won a decision

Evans Ashira- Tko'ed in 2 by Maselino Masoe the fight before he fought Calzaghe.

Frank Warren handpicked Slappy's way to a prolonged "title" reign. His fans want to act like he has been beating Lacy, Kessler, and Hopkins his whole career, he hasn’t. People claiming Slapzaghe is a legend and/or an ATG is a joke, Calzaghe=The British Sven Ottke.

Note:This is from 1997 to 2006. I didn't count his development years (93'-97').

Who is claiming Calzaghe is beating Kessler's his whole career? What a load of shitt. Calzaghe is a great fighter, saying anything otherwise automatically degrades any opinion you have of him. His resume is bulshitt untill a few years ago, but at least now he's finally doing something about it. He wanted the Hopkins fight years ago, it didn't happpen because Hopkins chose the money route. Nobody bitches about that, they just come out with ignorant whining about Calzaghe ducking everyone when it's quite clearly bullshitt. The haters don't give him any credit for beating people and they usually pick the guy he's up against to beat him. It's quite sad.

They have a more than 1 opponent in common, both protected titlist, unified late. There opposition is very similar, the only difference is, Slappy has a questionable decision over a debilitated B-Hop caliber fighter.

Listen to yourself man, he beat Bernard Hopkins fair and square he landed much more than any opponent ever on Hopkins and wore Hopkins out, you cant take nothing away from Calzaghe he beat Hopkins and nobody was saying Hopkins was sick and all that until he beat Pavlik because he looked better against him, the difference was that Pavlik stood infront of him and couldnt put his punches together and Clazaghe jumped around and punched in flurries. Calzaghe > Hopkins at this stage in their careers.

Dude pulled out twice against Glen Johnson to "injury", so let's just forget about that. Calzaghe is a great fighter and an A class pussy(in boxing), good for him.:thumbsup:

C.J, if Hopkins had the stones on fight night and actually fought he would have been beaten more decisively and there wouldn't be so many people clutching at straws. ;)

He's had to pull out against lesser opponents. He's had injury problems throughout his career man. And as I keep saying, Johnson signed a contract and broke it. Tough shitt on his part.

And Calzaghe didn't? The pressure he put on Hopkins was the very close to the pressure Pavlik was putting on. Not only Calzaghe's slaps but, his feints, footwork, and the way he ran into counters was very amateurish. The only difference is that he gassed (a way we've never seen) against Calzaghe causing me to believe more that he really did have a hyperactive thyroid for that fight. Winky put on better pressure and he didn't gas.

Johnson got paid 100,000 after he pulled out for the second time in a row, he shouldn't be blamed and he is not the reason that fight didn't come off. Inkin got killed for that against Froch.
Inkin didn't want to fight Froch for some reason. I don't believe Calzaghe didn't want to fight Johnson. He's injury prone and had to postpone the fight which he was entitled to do under the terms of the contract, Johnson didn't want to wait. Nobody is really to blame.

What year was the Johnson fight supposed to happen?

O so the year Johnson was fighter of the year?
Yeah, and if you knew what you were talking about you'd know that he only had beat Clinton Woods by that time. His win against a drained Jones and SD over Tarver were later in the year. ;)
