Ok ok ! So im sitting here thinking,what if! say floyd fights manny in october and wins! Fights shane in begining of 2010 and wins! How about a 2010 summer showdown Floyd vs Calzagahe at a catchweight say 160! This would be huge for boxing "
Give your opionion on say if these 2 met at a catchweight , I think it would be a interesting fight. A fantasy fight I would like 2 see lol, I believe it would bring out the best in both fighters ,calzagahe would throw punches all day to try and get threw floyds defense ,and floyd would have to step up his offensive side in order to pick joe apart! So what do u think ?

You're drinking a little too much beer.

Calzaghe couldn't make 160 BEFORE he was retired.

And everyone knows that Floyd won't fight that heavy.

Seriously, were you smoking crack to come up with this match?


Don't you think if Calzaghe could ever have made 160lb in his career he'd have been a seven year WBO champ in the division with 15 defences against Latvian rent boys and Mexican cab drivers?

And he shouldn't.

Well you guys are giving this dude a hard time cause he mentioned Calzaghe..There has been talk on here of Floyd and Roy Jones before..

Floyd would have way too many countering opportunities against Calzaghe..Calzaghe has bad technique..A good counter puncher who can throw a good amount of punches can beat him..Calzaghe has slowed his output when being countered..Roy and B-Hop showed what a perfectly timed counter punch can do to Calzaghe..They stun him..Floyd wouldn't hurt him or stun him but he'd pick him a part..

I can't believe this thread is being taken seriously. Calzaghe beats Mayweather fairly easy. Let's close it and move on.

Jonny...your trainer smack you around today and drop you? You really think Floyd the welterweight, would beat Calzaghe? Calzaghe would literally walk through anything PBF throws and outwork him. Floyd does not throw enough punches or punch hard enough to keep Joe honest. I hate Calzaghe, but he would beat Floyd easily, he is just too big, and he is a really good fighter. Hopkins or Jones could not keep him off them, and they are way bigger and stronger than Floyd. I could not even think the huggers would believe PBF could beat Joe.

The OP stated a catchweight at 160! Joe has been at 168 for almost his entire career, and also at 175. It is a stupid thread because Joe would never fight at 160, and you think Floyd would go to 168? Floyd does not even like fighting guys his own freaking weight! laugh.gif

Shit,I've seen Jack Dempsey weigh 180 lbs KO and destroy Willard who weighed 70 lbs at least more than him.

Harry Greb whooped up on Dempsey and Johnson in sparring..

I'm surprised you're sayin this shit..Your main man,James Toney went from middleweight to heavyweight..He has weighed in at around 240 before..So he weighs about 80 lbs more than his fighting weight before..How did he do it and make it work??His skills!!Why do you need to keep someone off you when they can't keep up with your footwork??Roy and B-Hop were too old,I was only mentioning how easy it is to counter his shitty punches..B-Hop and Roy were both 39+ years old..

Ok,well if Joe was 168 and Floyd was 160..

It's not as easy as you think. If it was then I'm sure he would have a few more losses. Also Calzaghe doesn't throw one punch. He throws punches in bunches which makes it even more difficult for you to counter them.

Margarito is the same way..Only difference is that Calzaghe has better defense..

Jonny has taken too many punches today. He has lost it.

This is a fight I would love to see as Floyd would get beaten badly.
