Joe Calzaghe Beats Roy Jones At The Garden

Joe Calzaghe Beats Roy Jones At Madison Square Garden

Joe Calzaghe Wins On Points

Joe Calzaghe remains unbeaten. After being knocked down in the first round from a good punch, he got off the canvas to mostly dominate the fight. Although Roy Jones did land some good punches, there just wasn't enough of them and his work rate just couldn't match up to Joe Calzaghes.

I must admit, i was scared for Joe Calzaghe in the first round, i thought it was all over. But his warrior heart would not allow that. Roy Jones definately looked like a 40 year old fighter. He just didn't throw enough and most the time was prepared to just cover up and take Joe Calzaghes shots.

A number of times Joe Calzaghe was just standing in front of Roy Jones with his hands down by his sides! I couldn't beleive it, i really thought he was crazy for doing that.

No one can dispute the decision, Joe Calzaghe won fair and square. I hated all the showboating from Joe Calzaghe, it was uncalled for, but he was in fight mode so he was on his game, and that's what he does sometimes. I do think it showed a little disrespect to Roy Jones, i thought Roy Jones was going to catch him with a knockout punch as he was showboating, he did catch him, but he didn't do that much damage. Joe Calzaghe took Roy Jones's punches well.

I honestly think that both Joe Calzaghe and Roy Jones should now retire. They are both great champions and have both had their time at the top of the sport. I think if Joe Calzaghe carrys on fighting, he will lose his unbeaten run. Roy Jones too, he will never get back to his youth, those days are now behind him. Roy Jones's footwork and stamina just aren't what they used to be.

Will they get it on again? There are already reports that they are considering it. If they do fight again it is just about the money. Joe Calzaghe said he wants to retire unbeaten, if he retires now he will, if he carrys on, i have the feeling he will lose his unbeaten record. Maybe not to Roy Jones but to someone else.

Be smart and retire Joe, you haven't got too many big fights left in you. You got nothing left to prove.

Roy Jones just call it a day, you had a great reign at the top and will always be remembered as one of the best ever, isn't that enough?
