    @Rasperdan Jeff Lacy Out-Pointed By Dhafir Smith

    By James Slater – All but forgotten amidst the incredibly busy weekend of boxing taking place in England, Las Vegas and Washington, was last night’s super-middleweight clash between former IBF super-middleweight champ Jeff Lacy and unheralded journeyman Dhafir Smith.

    Now, in losing to a man with 19 pro losses, Lacy looks finished, despite having had just 30 pro bouts.

    @JoeCalzagheTheCoward …… keep jumping through the hoop ….. lol

    Secondly, Calzaghe is now criticizing Ricky Hatton for having the audacity of seeking out a new promoter in the hopes that it will lead to fights against big-name fighters. Hatton has already beaten a much better fighter in Kostya Tszyu than anyone Calzaghe has on his resume.

    Joe Calzaghe will never be a great champion, says Roy Jones

    By Steve Royce

    American boxing legend Roy Jones has warned Joe Calzaghe that he will never be recognised as a truly great champion.

    “Joe is a long way from being the king of boxing in America,” said Jones. “He’s a good European fighter but there are too many question marks about his career.

    (c) ROY JONES

    I have no interest any more in Roy Jones and no interest in Antonio Tarver. Jones is washed up and Tarver was never that good anyway, he just caught Jones when Jones was shot and Johnson did the same.

    Q, Do you look at that Calzaghe fight?

    A, ROY JONES JR: I have been asked if there was one thing that I wish I had that would have helped me win that fight. The problem with that fight was that I didn’t have enough “rooted” knowledge in my corner to help me win the fight that night. Then I got the cut and I didn’t know I was going to have to go through something like that. I needed to get through that.

    I think Roy know the score here .. you say he is wrong ?

    Lacy never could box. People in boxing gyms would always talk about how he did everything with one punch (left hook) and no jab or defense and would fatigue easily. Calzaghe, on the other hand, can box, hand speed, and underrated defense. I never had Lacy winning this fight or against any other top “boxer.” 9 out of 10 times the boxer will beat the brawler. Doesn’t matter what country they call home.

  • By caesarcerf, November 7, 2010 @ 1:30 am

    the only word that need matter: Calzaghe is a consensus first-ballot first nano-second of eligibility hall-of-famer. Nothing more need ever be said.

    Shut out. Thanks for the upload. Clinical

  • By herodot2, November 7, 2010 @ 2:57 am

    Lacy was an overhyped ring bully, if this wasn’t clear before this match his post-Calzaghe career certaintly proved it.

    Calzaghe was a good fighter, impressive handspeed, good timing, great stamina (although not much of a punch), but too long overprotected by Frank Warren. Only towards the end of the career did he make a couple of really signfiicant fights (Kessler, Hopkins). Too little too late to make to the first row of legends.

    @boyceavenuetunez tell me about. that is american boxing fans described perfectly. They are the next big thing and amazing, they lose one fight and the yanks say they were shit anyway. When ricky hatton lost he got so much support from his fans here in britain.

  • By Shirishama1, November 7, 2010 @ 4:32 am

    Calzaghe was talented but a natural duck. He didn’t want to get in the ring here against hype job Lacy. He avoided prime Roy and lost to past it Hopkins.

  • By thediscoburglar, November 7, 2010 @ 5:28 am

    calzaghe, so good even the american commentators had to give him credit

    @joecalzaghethecoward you are an idiot who knows nothing about boxing. watch the video its simple. you muppet

    Paper champion Calzaghe retires
    06 February 2009

    Joe Calzaghe is a typical example of a boxer who has been protected through careful management in what must be one of the weakest divisions in boxing’s history. Calzaghe’s “reign” consists of 21 title defenses in a division and at a time where Sven Ottke made the same achievement.

    Hopefully boxing can pick itself up with fewer WBO-like titles and less Calzaghe-like management where the best fight the best.

    @monkeycrud Remember, how did Joe Calzaghe get his hands on the IBF belt? By beating Jeff Lacy! And how did Lacy get his hands on the IBF belt himself? Well, the eliminator for the IBF #2 spot against Tsypko was declared no contest because of a headbutt cut Tsypko so Lacy fought Vanderpool who had never held a world title (who beat Mendoza in the other eliminator) for the VACANT IBF SMW title…and won.

    joecalzagheTheCoward has a lot of resentment for someone he doesn’t even know. sour grapes?

  • By monkeycrud, November 7, 2010 @ 7:40 am

    Hopkins just too old – Calzaghe

    By Ben Dirs
    BBC Sport in Las Vegas

    Joe Calzaghe is convinced age will be the overriding factor when he meets Bernard Hopkins.

    At 36, Calzaghe, who fights Hopkins early on Sunday morning, is seven years younger than his opponent.
    “The guy is 43 years old – he’s not the Bionic Man, he’s human,” Calzaghe told BBC Sport.
