Joe Calzaghe vs Roy Jones Jr. Super Middleweight King vs Four Weight Monster. Two of the arguably greatest fighters of the last ten, fifteen years go head to head in a couple of hours for to determine who is the 'Superpower' of Boxing. Will Joe's sloppy side be exploited by a ruthless Jones? Or will Jones feel the pain of the age difference and succumb to the slightly younger man? Who knows? This is a really hard fight to call, and I'm not one to shy away from hard decisions, so I'll throw my hate in the ring and predict a Jones Jr victory by unanimous decision. However I personally feel this fight will be won in the first four rounds by the fighter who has more success in the exploiting the others weakness.

Ding. Ding. Gloves up. Round 1!

 

116 - 111 on my scorecard.

 

118 - 109 - Judges scorecards.

 

A bit harsh scoring in my book, but Joe did deserve to win the fight.

Good fight, Calzaghe pretty much dominated, particularly after the cut. I was hopeful when Jones knocked him down in the first round, but meh. He won fair and square, and looked really good in doing it. He gets to keep his precious undefeated record and retire a very rich man.

I was actually surprised jones went the distance, i was waitin for him to drop from about the 7th round onwards. Good fight. icon14.gif

I still think the Augustus v Figueroa fight was better though tounge2.gif

I don't get it. Calzaghe is in a position to collect some huge purses now that he's a marquee name here in the States. He's never been more marketable than he is right now. He could make 6 mil, minimum to fight Hopkins in a rematch and could probably get half that to fight Chad Dawson, who perhaps deserves a title shot more than anyone.

 

Do you guys think he'll stick to his guns and call it quits...or with so much money on the table, will he renege on his promise and continue fighting?

Well if he does fight again, I doubt it will be against Hopkins. He's said in an interview that I read somewhere a rematch with Hopkins is impossible as he's already beaten him, and he dislikes Hopkins as a person and doesn't want to give him the opportunity of a big pay day in a rematch. If he does decide to keep fighting I think Dawson is his most likely opponent... but he again recently compared him to Pavlik, as a over hyped fighter. He likes making a lot of excuses, doesn't he?

 

I think he'll stick to the plan and retire, perhaps move on to promoting fights.

Haha. I love Hatton's sense of humor. Nice to see him back at his natural weight in a solid performance. He used a bit more lateral movement than he has in the past...which was certainly a result of his switch in trainers. And the punches that Pauli did land had all the effects of shooting paintballs at a tank. Hatton walked right through most of them easily.

 

I gotta agree with him that at 140 lbs, he's the cream of the crop and will be extremely tough to beat. And you gotta admire his willingness to move up in weight, seeing as his last go round above 140 ended badly for him. Looks like he's now looking to fight the winner of De La Hoya-Pacquiao. I think he'll benefit more from a Pacquiao win as opposed to one by De La Hoya. If the latter happens, he'll likely have to move up in weight again to 147 to face Oscar, whereas he'll most likely fight Pac-Man at 140. Either fight is winnable for him, but I think he handles Paciuiao easier than Oscar.

I watched the fight, but today I also watched the Tszyu vs Hatton and Malignaggi vs Hatton fights back-to-back and the difference was huge. In those 7/8 weeks under the watchful guise of Mayweather Snr, Ricky Hatton has improved significantly tactically, defensively and just generally Boxing wise. The way he used his jab and his movement against Paulie was a joy to watch, and I hope that Ricky does end up fighting Manny Pac. Ricky 'The Hitman' Fatton, remember the name... biggrin.gif

De La Hoya - Pacquiao is a tough one to call. On the one hand you have a a young fighter in form against an ageing fighter with suspect form over his past six fights. Yet, on the other you have Pacquiao fighting one of the best fighters in the world, and in only 1 of 50-odd fights Pacquiao (vs David Diaz) the 130lb limit.

 

For me this fight will be won or lost in the first three rounds. Despite training well, it will come down to simply fitness in my opinion. Oscar won't be able to match Pacquiao in the later rounds (the Pac Man is in a whole different league than Oscar's last opponent Steve Forbes) without considerably conditioning himself earlier in the fight and thus will aim for an early (0-6R) knockout.

 

Personally...I think, the Pac Man will take this fight to the end potentially finishing with a TKO in the final rounds, but more probably winning by UD/SD. With that said, all it takes is one punch or one mistake and the direction in which the fight is heading can swing dramatically...

 

Also Enzo Maccarinelli is fighting a Puerto Rican named Francisco Alvarez. He's nothing special, it's bascially a fight to get Enzo back on the right track after David Haye destroyed him, however if he doesn't win, that will pretty much single that he's nearing the end of his career in my opinion.

Amir Khan to fight Marco Antonio Barrera

 

It's sad, because I never want to see a fighter die in the ring, but I'm inclined to believe that if this fight goes ahead then the promising 22yr old lad from Bolton will end up pre-maturely in a coffin, because I believe Marco would destroy the young lad without hesitation.

 

Barrera is a HUGE, scrap that, MONUMENTAL step in form from fighting a two-bit Irish fighter. This is a man that has continually fought three of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the world in Morales, Marquez and Pacquiao. Marco is a boxing legend and has shown this in the entertainment that every one of his fights provide, and while Amir has youth on his side. Barrera is simply a better fighter, gloves down, technically and mentally.

 

To give Amir Khan his dues though, at least he's actually taking on a fight with a boxer who can't be classed as a two-bit Amateur (Prescott not included), still I can't see any other way this fight can go except for a win for the Baby Faced Assassin. Amir Khan hasn't jumped on to the next ring of the boxing ladder, he's gone all the way to the top and jumped off it!

Wow, I can't say I saw that one coming. They'd better not charge £15 for it, I bet it will only last a couple of rounds. Even if Khan fights defensively, Barrera is going to catch him eventually. And when he does, ding ding ding, fights over.

Yes i wont be paying for this fight either because there is no way Khan is going to last five rounds with Barrera. Its a huge jump for Khan and im glad its happening because i cant wait to see him get jis ass knocked out again.

dundee, i would say you need to lead with and straighten up your jab arm a little,

you seem to have a very square stance. remember to keep that guard up, too

even on the bags!

 

no offence meant, but i assume if your putting these vids on the internets then

your up for some opinionative critiscm...?

Did anybody see Margarito V Mosley?

I saw it, and I think it was probably Shane's finest hour as a pro. His hand speed and combinations won the fight for him. He made it look easy too. He had his way with Margarito from the opening bell until the end where he became the first guy to knock him out. It's great to see Shane do well, especially becuase he's been one of boxing's biggest assets inside and out of the ring for years now. On top of being a world class fighter, Shane's always been a consummate professional and a true gentleman.

 

Unfortunately, most of the talk I hear about this fight is directed more towards Margarito and the fact that he apparently attempted to load his gloves. The Margarito camp was caught using "a plaster-like substance" within the gauze of his hand wraps. The way I understand it, Mosley's trainer Naseem Richardson was in Margarito's dressing room to watch his hands being wrapped and he asked for a re-wrap. And when the commissioner ordered Margarito's trainer to undo the wrap, they found this substance that would allegedly harden when wet. I hear Margarito and his chief trainer will be suspended indefinitely for this, and that a ruling should come soon as to how long the suspension will be. Personally, I think a year to two would be appropriate. This kind of bullsh*t can't be tolerated.

Is there not a nearby boxing gym around your area that you could join? Judging from all your different punch bags it would seem you take it quite seriously, and hitting a bag alone can only get you so far. Have a look around on Google, I'm sure you'll find one fairly nearby.

Ah right, I didn't know about this. And I was commending Antonio on how well he took the defeat, he seemed genuinely pleasantly shocked that Mosley was as good as he was. Margarito's trainer should definitely face some heavy punishment, loaded gloves are potentially lethal.

To me at least, Joe's career could have been that much more spectacular had Frank Warren not kept him hidden over the pond for most of his career. He toiled in mediocrity for years before being recognized for what he always was...a great fighter. It was only when he destroyed Jeff Lacy that many Americans started to watch him and like him, but he's always been a world class fighter.

 

Anyway, 46-0 is about as good as it gets. He's a surefire first ballot Hall of Famer...even though the fact remains that he never beat Bernard Hopkins...and is still scared to give the old man a rematch, eh Joey? tounge.gif

yeah, i dont want to be viewed as a critic of joe, but i cant help but feel that -

even tho he retires unbeaten, he has not fufilled his potential. yes, frank

warren (wanker) did hide him and did not recognise just how good he was early

enough, and i dont think we ever actually found out how good joe was.

what if he had made the steps he has made in the past 4 years in the late

90s? he should have had at least a dozen fights at light-heavy and heaven knows

what then?

 

tbh, i'm disappointed. he is at that stage now, that someone of his ability should

be at the age of about 30 at the most. even though his career was great, i cant

help but feel there is somewhat a smell of waste in there too.

 

soz, joe, not saying you arent great, but it would have been nice to see just

how great you were....
