I feel it could be a bit dodgy. Lining up the next fight with Jones Jr or Pavlik. I haven't seen it as yet though just listened on the radio.

Rubbish - How was it a fix??

Calzaghe was the busier fighter throughout and 9 rounds was generous but he still done enough to win by a round or two.

If it were fixed it wouldn't have been Calzaghe returning with the belts.

Live, I thought Hopkins won it. But I wasn't scoring the fight round after round. I'd have to watch it again a bit more calmly to do that.

I was surprised Calzaghe got the decision though. The bigger more accurate punches were from Hopkins. Joe seemed to be missing him all night to me.

I had Hopkins up by four points after the first three rounds. That means he only needed to win 2 of the last 9 to get a draw and he did at least that.

Shows how differently two people can see a fight. Even the judges couldn't agree.

It was different watching it back today. If you watch it as someone wanting Bhop to win, you see very little at all from him after round 4, and much of his work in 3 and 4 misses the mark. He doesn't throw much leather, and Joe takes most of his big rights on the upper arm and shoulder. You actually see precious little to get excited about.
The play acting over the low blow was shameful, and I think it counted very heavily aainst him.
Joe is actually quite canny. He has worked Bhopout by the end of 4, and boxes much more cleverly. The myt thatJoe's punches don't hurt is ludicrous. Hopkins was the more powerful puncher. If oe's work wasn't doing damage (mentally) to Bhop, then Bhop would have simply walked through Joe's punches to land his big right cross. The fact is, Hopkins was on his bike BECAUSE when he stood still, he got hit with a lot of punches.
Bhop has made a lot of very good fighters appear clumsy before now. Calzaghe did a sound job to figure him out and win pretty much every round from 5 onwards.
