Audley Harrison is rubbish

He's not that good.

Hope the Calzaghe fight is better. I think he'll lose. In saying that, I don't know much about the boy he's up against, but I watched Calzaghe's last fight and wasn't hugely impressed.

The fight before that, he was fantastic.

I don't know very much about boxing. Hope Calzaghe wins though.

Very close but Calzaghe was trying to get on the offense and throw punches whilst Hopkins was keen to play on the counter and hold to conserve energy.

By no means the classic it could have been thats for sure.

What is the general consensus (sp) of the fight result? 5 of us watched it at a mates house and 3 though Joe Calzage deserved to win 2 thought it was a ridiculous decision. Have to say i was in favour of a 1 to 2 point victory for Mr Calzage. One of the judges gave it to Joe by 5 points which i find baffling. (considering he was 10 8 down after the first) Not being a boxing expert though am i right or wrong? ps not a great scrap IMHO also why so much negative boxing from Hopkins??? Seems to happen every Calzage fight though. :(

Hopkins was brutal - spoiling tactics all the way. Nae need for all the low-blow patter as well. I'm glad he never won.

I do think Hopkins had it in him to beat Calzaghe if he'd been more offensive, but he seemed more intent on not getting hit than actually trying to hit Calzaghe.

I can't believe that was the same ref who pulled Ricky Hatton up for everything, as he was letting everything go in this fight.

watched it through HBO and the un-official scorecards had Calzaghe ahead. the feed was pants early dorrs but IMO Calzaghe won the last 6 rounds easily.

was an alright fight, these big ones always are a bit tame. Liked the look of the Nathan fella who Enzo trains with Joe.

Calzaghe won because he was awarded more points for actually coming forward and fighting rather than hopkins getting knackered and trying to be defensive.

Nobody I watched it with could even believe it was a split decision. I thought Calzaghe won by a country mile to be honest.
