Joe Calzaghe Vs Roy Jones

Joe Calzaghe Vs Roy Jones

There seems to be little interest in this fight. People are saying it's a fake. Fans are saying Roy Jones is well past his best and this is more of an exhibition match. I really don't think they should right Roy Jones off. Roy Jones is one of the best boxers of the last 8-10 years. Joe Calzaghe and Roy Jones are both not spring chickens anymore, the only difference bettween the two is Joe Calzaghe has never lost or been knocked out. I think this could be a great fight, it's a shame this fight did not happen like 5-7 years ago, if it would have, Joe Calzaghe would of lost. Roy Jones was Mr. Unstoppable in them days.

Ticket sales for this boxing match have been really slow because of the credit crunch and the lack of interest in the match up. Joe Calzaghe has never got the credit he deserved throughout his career, he has been a good boxer but never traveled and conquered America early in his career.

The weigh in did not allow any fans to be present!

I think Joe Calzaghe seems a bit concerned about this fight. He doesn't seem the same mentally..Maybe he has always known Roy Jones has better skillls and he hopes he has caught him at the right stage of his career-at the END!

Here is what the Pro's say:

Who Wins?

Former two-division World Champ Bernard Hopkins ( who has lost to both Calzaghe and Jones) thinks, Roy Jones by a unanimous because of his speed and power.

Ricky Hatton, ex-Welterweight World Champion said: "Roy's seen better days, Joe will be too fast and will outbox Roy Jones".

Peter Manfredo thinks Joe Calzaghe on points as he doesn't hit hard enough to knockout Roy Jones.

Former Heavy Weight Champion Lennox Lewis said: Roy Jones has superb speed, Joe Calzaghe's never fought anyone like him - Roy Jones to win on points.
TEN-TIME World Champion Oscar De La Hoya says: Joe Calzaghe is going to close the door on Roy Jones's career.

Personally i hope Joe Calzaghe wins, but you can never right off one of the best boxers ever! Roy Jones. May the best man win!.
