Joe Calzaghe vs. Roy Jones booked for September…

09 Jul

We all knew it was a matter of time before this fight was finalized. It was either Joe C taking on a past-his-prime Roy or a mega fight with middleweight champion Kelly Pavlik. Well Calzaghe’s promoter Frank Warren was leaning towards Pavlik for Calzaghe’s could be last fight before retirement. Calzaghe thought otherwise and fired his longtime promoter. The result is a September 20th Madison Square Garden fight for Jones and Calzaghe. Although the boxing community would have preferred a Pavlik-Calzaghe matchup, Jones still brings a lot to the table at 39 and will be no pushover for the undefeated Welshman especially considering his dominating performance over Tito Trinidad. Stay tuned for updates including training videos, press conferences, and so on.
