I've always liked Kessler and I just watched his fight with Calzaghe and he did pretty good. I had it 8-3-1 for Calzaghe. I hate Joe's guts he has to be my least favorite fighter of all time but he looked very good in this fight, IMO better than his performances over 43 year old Hopkins and a shot Roy Jones Jr. I think this was Calzaghe's best win because he was fighting a real talented young fighter.
Anyway, the pace seemed to be too much for Kessler and I have to give Calzgahe credit for conditioning he has insane stamina.
How would Kessler do against Dawson and Bute? He is clearly a level above everyone else at SMW..except maybe Taylor.
I think I just said all this in another thread..haha..Calzaghe def. did his best against Kessler and Kessler was the guy everyone said Calzaghe had to beat to prove his dominance..Kessler was able to try to hang with Calzaghe's work rate even though he couldn't..No one else has been able to come close to Calzaghe's work rate otherwise..Lacy was really stupid by coming into the fight trying to be a big as possible for a 168er,he should of trimmed up,not used weights much or at all,and strictly work on stamina and conditioning along with his normal technique work..
I think Kessler/Taylor would be a real good fight too..Ya are forgetting a couple guys at SMW though..Carl Froch,Bute of course,and Andre Dirrell would all be guys to watch there and could be great fights for Kessler..A Froch/Kessler fight would be the fight I'd want to see most at SMW..Andre Dirrell should get a 2-3 more fights atleast,one of them being a elite guy of SMW before thinking about Kessler..Dirrell is still pretty green..Hanshaw is not elite and some may say so because he fought Roy..Definitely not!!
