I was staring at the odds and had to do it, granted after a few pints. i had to throw down on Hopkins by decision, i mean 14-5, that's close to 3-1. those odds are too good to pass up, so man had to do work. i am now rooting for hopkins, the man i think is going to lose. c'mon hometown judges!!!

Apparently Max was listening to his vocabulary builder tapes before the broadcast started.

WTF was that all about? Just talk, Max. You don't have to try to impress us all.

What do you mean underdog? That’s what I like! Don’t you know that helps me? That’s not a negative to me! That’s – tha – tha – that’s – that’s – that’s a positive to me! I rather be that because that’s my world. That’s how I function – everything I got – in and out of the ring I had to fight for even for my own humanity…so when that comes to those rounds or comes to that moment when I am challenged and he wanna keep comin’…be careful what you ask for! – the old cliché…”

^^^ Maaaaan, those some beautiful words spoken there.

First Hatton, now Cal.

Cortez is the worst possible choice of ref for this fight. The only meaningful fighting (other than the knockdown) has come when they were clinched.

48 - 48 after 5. Cal winning the last two rounds in Jermaine Taylor like fashion.
KookedKrack
i hate those fucking slapping punches but joe is beginning to get into his rhythm
Chi-Town
58-57 Caalzaghe...he wins another super close round.....his father sounds desperate in the corner though
KookedKrack
dam calslappy almost dropped at the end of round 7
Chi-Town
67-67...close round for Hopkins after 7. The championship rounds will be hugely important in this fight.
The CEO
How's Calzaghe look in the face...is he noticeably marked or gassing any?
Chi-Town
These rounds are uber-close. 8th to Calzaghe 77 - 76

He's got a sizable cut on the nose
salvador
At some point, Hopkins has to start throwing punches. How many fights does he have to lose before he realizes that he has to throw more punches? Seriously, Calzaghe is outthrowing him by 2-1.
Chi-Town
Cal cleanly wins round 9...definitely seizing the momentum
The CEO
Ok..thanks, CT...no gassing though...Cal might do what many thought he would do....simply win because he produced more punches....
WindyCityP
What a surprise this fight sucks.
Chi-Town
major low blow by Cal, but Hopkins milks it for the full 5 minutes early in the tenth
Chi-Town
action packed round ten...hopkins steps on the gas and cleanly wins round 10
The CEO
Take the full 5 if you need it that late....let's see if it pays off....
HaydelHammer
this sh*t is terrible...lol
CyruS
Just hand in the decision already.
The CEO
It's a shitty fight?....could be that Draw.

no way. lol
Chi-Town
Just exchangin punches at this point with joe landing more often...Enzo seems to think Joe needs a KO though. 105 105 going into 12th on my card
The CEO

I hear ya...but it didn't sound as boring or ugly as it could have been....until the milking of the low blows....

KookedKrack
calslappy wins on points
CyruS
Joey Cal won. Son of a bitch..... laugh.gif
Romulus9
I had it 114-113 Hopkins.

Absolutely no way this was a 9 rounds to 3 fight like one judge had it.
The CEO
and Hopkins takes it in the rear again...another one of these cards....I'm only gonna watch it once....
CyruS
I'm shaking my damn head right now.....


laugh.gif
KookedKrack
yea cosign that last card was suspect
Chi-Town
Again...superclose round 12 I give to Calzaghe....I have it 115 - 113 Calzaghe
D-MARV
I had it 115-112 for Calzaghe. Im not at all mad at the decision!
Chi-Town
total replay of second taylor fight
KookedKrack
calslappy said he is the legend killer (no orton) might whoop on roy now
The CEO
Calzaghe threw and landed more it looks like...damn.

rusty_trombone
well, i had cash on hopkins, but i thought it was easily a win for calzaghe. after 3 easy work for joe.
rusty_trombone
o and hopkins whined like a bitch after the fight, imagine that, claiming the fans know who really won. he thinks he won oononamously again. jesus, just take your loss like a man.

hahahaha, joe hit him in the "croutch"
Romulus9
Punchstat numbers were bogus tonight.

I hope Roy gets in the ring and beats Calslappy's ass.

2 - 40 yr olds ...go for it joe. Building a nice legacy there.
The CEO
lol....and to think...Calzaghe was considered "Supernatural" to his UK fans before this win...I wonder what they think of him now..?
CyruS
Joey Cal won the World's Light Heavyweight Slap Boxing Championship.
