Once Joe Calzaghe has retired from boxing he decided to open up a promotion company along with his father Enzo Calzaghe which is called Calzaghe promotions. Joe has tried his hand at football as well and has managed to win the 2010 Soccer Aid which is basically a charity football match which was played with the Rest of the world and England. Joe played a key role by scoring the winning goal for the Rest of the world.
