    Thank goodness Hopkins wasn't allowed to duck his way to another win.

    Pitiful fight for the fans but the est man won.
    :yes:

    Hopkins lost face by claiming that he won.What a douche

    Please, hopkins is 43 friggin years old! He first fought for the middleweight title in 1993 and won it in 94. If cafaggy is so damn great why did he need a split decision to win? Why didn't he own hopkins the same way terry norris owned a past his prime ray leonard? This was not a statement by calfaggy it just proves he is 50% hype.

    Wow his 2 biggest fights in his life are against a fossil and a white guy from denmark.

    A younger hopkins owns this guy and hagler takes his heart out and eats it!

    One of the judges agreed with that.

    He's in pretty good shape for a 43yr old. Agree about Hagler tho.

    I like Calz, but I hate his slap-boxing style. His entire plan is to just look busy. Throw a bunch of punches, and hope the judges decide he won, because he sure isn't going to knock anyone good out.

    Calzaghe is a pretty un-impressive fighter. Like Gloat said, he has this amateurish style of appearing aggressive with his jab and hooks, but they pitter-patter of the opponent. Yeah, that works in Golden Gloves, but it's horribly boring to watch. What's with these recent British "greats" (Hatton?) having a huge following, but having such abysmal style?

    It's just the Pommy way. Mediocrity in the rest of the world is great for them. (Soccer, cricket, boxing etc etc.)

    i saw calzaghe winning by decision from a mile away. to me, he's the best supermiddle weight doing his thing right now. yeah hopkins may have beat him in his prime but guess what, he's not in his prime any more. the fight i wanna see is calzaghe v pavlik (plus 30 lbs or so)...
