The Lacy fight was incredible. Maybe, better than anything any British boxer has done in a decades (yes even better than Hatton-Tszyu). Seldom has an undefeated World Champion, fighing at home been a big underdog and then go onto completely school his opponent and make him look foolish. Calzaghe was brilliant against a supposed unstoppable foe.
The Lacy fight was a masterclass and was career defining. No doubt about it now. Joe is a great fighter.
