    So he did. However, the guy he faught after Lacy was pretty good and was cheated out of being World Champ in his previous fight with a technical draw.

    Calzaghe still dominated a pretty good fighter for a clear pts decision.

    yep, I think Calzaghe himself said he didn't fight very well. The guy just brought him down to his level and he got sucked in to changing his game.

    Be hard for Calzaghe, firstly because he likes to overemphasise his ‘Welshness’ and leaving your wife and kids for some tart does little for ones credit regardless of his boxing pedigree.

    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
    - Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli

    Think it's on the borderline of what's morally permissible for mine. & I say that as a fan. Can't deny that there's something very compelling about two blokes going mano a mano.

    The big trouble is fighters who go on for too long; Ali definitely did. I've read he was showing symptoms of Parkinson's before his last fight with Trevor Berbick (who was murdered in Jamaica last week, RIP). I have the same worry for Holyfield, whose speech is slurred already, & Tommy Hearns, still fighting in his late 40s.

    IMO it's been a pretty terrible year for British sport. When one of the candidates is nominated more for his cult hero status than for his performances it makes yet more of a mockery of the award. Might as well give it to Peter Crouch.

    There's been no outstanding British performers, so I voted for Chris Greenacre, my hero.

    No outstanding British performers in sports you take an interest in.
