    Is Woods on PPV tomorrow or just normal Setanta? Probably going to be at a mates place who has Sky but disgracefully doesn't have the sports channels. If it's on PPV I'll likely phone up and buy it.

    I'll have to record Cotto/Gomez and Cintron/Margarito and watch them Sunday. Should be a couple of fights well worth seeing. The Calzaghe fight next week is the one I'm really looking forward to though. Can anyone here see Joe losing?

    Woods is on Setanta mate.

    There both near enough on at the same time.

    As for the big one last week I just can't see Joe losing, hopefully going to be a good night with a few mates over, like the Hatton fight but a different outcome.

    Gomez has his face on but Cotto look cool and calm like always.

    I was watching most of Cotto fights last night, the Torres fight round 2 blood hell how did he survive and round 5 he was in trouble too. Also his win over Corley was a bit daft too.

    I guess Cotto fans will know this but when he looks in trouble he really shows it.

    Yeah that Torres fight was superb. A lot of fans on Boxing Forums think Cotto is overrated, I don't agree with that.

    He is a Boxing machine.

    That was the first time I have ever seen Woods fight and I can't say that I'm impressed. He just couldn't get near Tarver he just got picked off.

    Thats cos (despite being a champion) Woods is in no way an elite boxer whatsoever. Enzo Calzaghe said that Woods would've been the best fight that Calzaghe could take at that weight because he'd be a lucrative domestic match, he'd bring a belt and he'd be piss easy to beat.

    Yeah fairplay to Tarver he outboxed him.

    Gomez was a mismatch for Cotto, easy victory for the Puerto Rico star.

    The thing that disappointed me the most about Woods was the apparent lack of effort. Tarver was visibly gasping for breath by the end and Woods didn't step up his game. He seemed to lack hunger rather than talent.

    Don't know how that fight got regulated, really. Gomez was always going to take a pasting.

    If Cotto gets past Margarito and PBF past Oscar, that could be a big fight for next year, assuming Floyd doesn't dodge Cotto in favour of the possible money spinning Wembley fight with Hatton.

    He lacks both really. Apparently a good mate of his died this past week, so maybe he was a bit distracted. Plus, he's never been great on the big stage.

    Yep I heard Woods good friend passes away, against Tarver he just wasn't doing much really.

    Good question how did that fight get regulated, surely not becuase Gomez beat a past it Gatti.

    I hope Cotto wins Margarito and gets Floyd. Margarito looked very good on Saturday though.

    Cotto's timing, speed, and technique is just down right superb.

    I'm looking forward to this more than I was Hatton/Mayweather to be honest. I really hope Joe does himself justice, if he under performs and Hopkins somehow picks up the win he'll be labelled a fraud in the US, which we all know is not true.

    I see it going the twelve rounds, with Calzaghe hopefully dominating enough to prevent the judges from screwing him out of it. No-one has ever had an easy night against Hopkins and despite being 43, his last couple of performances have been impressive. He looks in great shape still and is far from past it. I just think Calzaghe's speed and relentless pressure will be too much for Hopkins. Joe's smart enough not to get sucked into a brawl on the inside. Unanimous decision for Joe.

    My predictions recently have been pretty good too - Mayweather (although I said UD), Haye 1-3, Pacquiao on points, Vazquez on points, Tarver on points. The only one I've got wrong is Pavlik/Taylor, thought Taylor would win the rematch. Hopefully my prediction is right for Saturday, although I'd LOVE to see Joe knock him out.

    Should be brilliant, especially with Audley Harrison providing the pre-match comedic entertainment.

    Joe doesn't have it in him to knock him out. I just can't see it happening. A stoppage at a push. It would be fucking awesome, however. He is massive favourite - 1/3 at most bookies.

    But Hopkins is certainly no slouch. Should be a decent fight.

    I wouldnt be surprised to see Joe get a TKO towards the end of the fight. He has claimed that it should free-up his hands a bit at a higher weight (his power problems come from having very bad hands, rather than not having the power within him), so we'll see how that goes.

    Naturally, I'm expecting a Joe UD. I havent feared as much this time, because I think that its more certain than the Kessler fight, but I think that Calzaghe is superior and has gained so much confidence from his two big wins. The closer to the fight it gets, the more nervous I become though, as Joe has been my favourite fighter ever since Tyson fell apart. I'm sure that he'll do me proud though. I would be unimaginably devastated if he lost.

    Yeah I was nervous as hell for Hatton, sure I will be the same for Joe. I was all for Joe to win the fight but watching the build ups and all that, I'm 50/50 now. Hopefully Joe pulls out something special and shuts Hopkins and Americans up!

    The reason you're a 50/50 now is because the build-up messes with you head and trying to push the fight as being 50/50. If you use a bit of reasoning, you'll get back behind Calzaghe.

    I see your point but don't worry I'm backing him all the way.

    Weigh-in is on the HBO website at 10:30 UK time.

    Aye Calzaghe is the clear favourite.

    Hopkins is a dithering old bastard, hoping for as much publicity as he can get so he can make as much money as possible. He knows he's going to get beat. It's merely a formality.

    Joe looked fucking pumped in the weigh-in yesterday. Fuck I hope he does it.

    Massive debate on the 606 website, mainly between people who think Calzaghe will win every round and those who say Joe's a bum and has never met anyone in Hopkins' class. It does annoys me that Joe didn't go for bigger fights right after destroying Lacy. That was the time to really step up a gear, yet he fought a no hoper in Manfredo and a strong but ugly fighter in Bika. Warren really dropped the ball there.

    Still, I'm positive Calzaghe has the ability to mix it with the best, even if he's yet to prove it in the States. This is a good fight for him.

    I’ve read and heard a lot of talk debating the boxing records of Bernard Hopkins compared to Joe Calzaghe. Even Hopkins and Calzaghe have also been discussing each others records.

    They say Joe Calzaghe has only ever fought sub standard European opposition. I really don’t get this one. Calzaghe has fought Omar Sheika from the U.S, Charles Brewer (former I.B.F Super middleweight champion), Byron Mitchell (2 time W.B.A Champion) and the supposed future of boxing and heavy favorite Jeff Lacey (was current I.B.F Champion).

    All of the above were in my opinion a good class of American opposition. Although Kessler was European anyone who might suggest he was sub standard does not know about boxing. Chris Eubank although past his peak, Robin Reid, Richie Woodall and Sakio Bika were all also in my opinion of a good standard, three of these have held versions of the super middleweight title at some point in their careers. So has Joe Calzaghe only fought sub standard European opposition clearly not.

    Yes Hopkins has fought the better skilled boxers and future hall of famers in De La Hoya and Trinidad, but they were out of their weight classes. If Hopkins had have avenged his lose to Jones Jr and have beat Calzaghe around the same period instead of fighting these blown up Welters then I think his record to the boxing purist would look a lot better.

    Who’s got the best record? Who cares! These are both mega stars of boxing, with fans over both sides of the pond. This is boxing at its very best and I can’t wait!

    Yep Joe looked well up for it last night, Hopkins didn't seem like his usual self. Your right in what your saying Joe should have got bigger fight after destroying Lacy.

    Joe has one of the most underrated chins in boxing, he'll be fine taking shots. I just hope that the ref is fair and so are the judges. I dont want to see Hopkins cheating and getting away with it from ref and judges.

    Hopefully Cortez will be as strict here as he was for the Hatton fight. Hope Joe can put on a good show, I'm sure he will.

    Audley is a fucking jokey. I can understand him being a bit gunshy, but I dont think that he'll ever be able to compete on a top level.

    Gave up on trying to get any sleep tonight so I've found myself a stream to get involved.

    So pleased I missed Audley. He's not even fun to watch as a joke, he's an absolute excitement and charisma vacuum.

    I've got Hopkins 3 points up so far. Calzaghe needs to adjust to him and start reeling him in.

    Calzaghe's round again. Its hard to view this with the eye of American judges. I'd say that Joe needs to keep outworking Hopkins for the rest of the fight to get the decision. I do think that he's starting to get the rhythm now though.

    I'd have it level now. Joe needs to win the rest of them to take it out of the judges hands though. He needs a few clear hits.

    Do or die now for Calzaghe. If he doesn't knock him out now, Hopkins has got it in the bag.

    Can't see it though.

    I've got Calzaghe by one or two. Depends on the judges though. I'd like to think that they'll favour his aggression over the hometown decision, but I doubt it.

    I have Calzaghe by 2 points, so no doubt it'll go down as Hopkins by a wide unanimous decision.

    I'm gonna say Hopkins on split decision. I've got Hopkins ahead by a point, but I'm hoping, like you say, that at least one of the judges takes his aggression into account.

    YES! In reality you could probably add another round on for Calzaghe to those scores, in fairness you should take a point off Hopkins too for ridiculously constant foul.

    I woke up the neighbours when the third score was called out. 116-111 was beyond belief.

    I had it 115-113.

    "I would never let a white boy beat me"

    "You can print that. I would never lose to a white person. He said on record that he's going to take the fight and that's all you need to hear."
    Can't say that I haven't taken this into account in wanting to see Hopkins lose.

    I thought Joe had it in the sense that he looked like he was pro-actively trying to take the fight to Hopkins, whereas Hopkins looked happier to soak it up and hit the odd counter.

    I did think that Hopkins was going to take the win, but I'm delighted for Joe.

    Can't imagine Hopkins is going to be gracious in defeat here...

    I was watching the fight on HBO and they pretty much sided with Calzaghe the whole fight.

    Were the Setanta commentators saying Hopkins should've won or something?

    I thought Calzaghe was pretty comfortable throughout.

    I scored it as follows:

    114-113 Hopkins
    115-112 Calzaghe
    116-111 Calzaghe

    I had Calzaghe down to win by split decision.

    From round 4'ish I thought he was. Took a while to recover, and start throwing normally after the knock down. WARY.

    Exactly the reaction of my housemate.

    It's a good job I've followed Joe since he first set foot in the ring
