Well done Joe Calzaghe

Well done Joe Calzaghe. I didn't think it was the best fight i've seen but he did the job and still world champion.

Good luck in the future and good luck to Ricky Hatton next month.

He should just box like he can.....he needs to stop showboating, he's a great boxer an will go along way......superb.
You taking the pi$$. He is 35, defended his title for 10 years, with 21 defences of the WBO title and has just walked away with the WBC & WBA titles as well after embarresing the former holder in the ring.

What exactly do you think he can do to go further?

Well i think his next defence should be with one hand tied to his belt and the challenger should be a rabid lion. Then if he wins that one I MIGHT give him the respect he claims he is due. :roll:

He must have an awesome chin to take those upper cuts from the big dane...

Well worth staying up to watch. I thought it was a good fight, the best fighter won, but Kessler can go home with his pride intact.

Yeah, it was a good fight and Joe did well. Kessler landed some decent uppercuts and made the fight competitive throughout until Calzaghe took control late on.

I don't know who he's gonna fight next. They're talking about Bernard Hopkins. However, the fight I'm really interested in is still a month away. That'll be a big 'un. Vegas here I come.

I've got tickets to Hatton too........

He's going to have to entice him into a toe to toe brawl or I think he'll struggle.

Tickets to the actual fight or the CCTV showing???
Just interested....as I have the latter. Proper tickets were far too expensive...

Should organise some kind of ARRSE get-together in Vegas and show them Yanks how British squaddies party (as if they don't know already!!!!!)

Managed to get two tickets.

Also booked tickets for an audience with in Manchester next year, but might not be here so probably going to flog them

As much as I love Ricky, this is an assignment he's probabaly gonna lose.

Mayweather is one of the cleverest, if not THE cleverest fighter in the sport today. Hatton is made for him - he won't have to go looking for the Hitman, Ricky's coming right at him. Hatton's head movement isn't the greatest in the world, and Mayweather will spend all night teeing off on him. I can't see him KOing Hatton, but a cuts loss is more likely, or maybe Hatton's eyes close due to some very precise punching.
However, Mayweather will never have experienced anything like Hatton ripping in boyshots & hooks for 12 rounds. This is what makes the fight so intriguing. This is a live opponent for Floyd - not some washed up has-been like Arturo Gatti or Carlos Baldomir. Hatton is young and VERY full of ambition and will set out on a search and destroy mission from the first bell. There's only one way he'll beat Mayweather - be on him like a rash from the word go.

But this is why the contest is generating so much excitement. There's a possibility that Mayweather could get done. It's akin to the Leonard v Duran fights of the early 1980.

I'm picking Floyd Mayweather, but cautiously.

Well done Joe, I think you could stick him up to no.3 in the P4P rankings now.

Re Hatton. Unless Mayweather has a very bad day, which is unlikely, Hatton will be outpointed.

Dont suppose anyone knows who's showing the Miguel Cotto and David Haye bouts on Saturday?

So many good fights!

I've got a feeling the Hatton fight will end up like the Naseem Hamed v Barrera fight. I think Hatton will be outclassed by Mayweather, and then we'll have to listen to the yanks going on about another 'overhyped brit'. I really hope I'm wrong, but Mayweather is a class act.

I just hope the Hitman puts up a great fight, and does Britain proud, and i'm sure he will.

There's only one Ricky Hatton!!!
