i think calzaghe is a great fighter but when he tries to showboat and drops his hands (trying to imitate roy jones in my opinion) he looks crap.i think he needs to stick to his boxing at all times in this fight
 if he starts the showboating he could get knocked out.

I'm inclined to agree with you Liam. About Calzaghe being a great fighter and maybe being over-confident for this fight.

Roy's going to be looking to make a statement and he clearly sees something in Joe that he thinks he can exploit. Joe better be careful or Roy will beat him and in stunning fashion at that.

If Joe gets past this fighter he needs to fight fight 4 more times and go for 50-and-0.

After Jones he should fight Glen Johnson, Zsoldt Erdei, the winner of Tarver/Dawson and then make a rematch with Kessler at light-heavy.

If he wins all of those fights he will have to go down as the greatest p4p fighter of all time.

I CAN'T UNDERSTAND WHY J.C WANTS TO FIGHT RJJ APART FROM THE OBVIOUS.RJJ WAS A GREAT FIGHTER BUT HE'S WELL PAST HIS BEST.IF ANYBODY'S GONNA GET SPARKED IT'S RJJ.I DON'T SEE HOW RJJ CAN WIN JC IS JUST AS QUICK,HAS AN IRON CHIN AND A FEROCIOUS WORKRATE AND HIS MOVEMENT IS QUALITY,FOR ME THIS HAS COME 5 YEARS TOO LATE.

i wouldnt say that joe looks crap when he drops his hands but to me, he looked a bit of a dick doing it and took a few punches he didnt need to take.  BUT!, he was just playing roy jones at his own game, everything joe did is exactly what roy used to do so i see it as fair enough, joes skilled enough to get out of a situation if roy jones had clocked him while hes showboating, which he did a few times so why not play around in the ring and give roy jones a taste of his own medicine?
just dont do it again please joe if you do decide to have "one more fight"...............
