world super-middleweight king Joe Calzaghe takes on former world
middleweight, super-middleweight and current light-heavyweight champ
Bernard 'The Executioner' Hopkins at the Thomas and Mack Centre in Las
Vegas on 19th April. With both fighters making over 20
world title defences and also being in a select band of men who have
held championship belts for over 10 years this is a fight no-one is
going to want to miss, and one that both boxers are desperate to win.
estimated 10,000 Calzaghe fans are making the journey to cheer on
their hero, and all is set for an amazing dust up when the bell for
round one rings. These two have been at each other for months and are
chomping at the bit to finally be able to do the business where it
counts, in the ring.
Calzaghe said, "I won't be taking Hopkins lightly, but I'm going
to kick his butt for him in front of all his fans" while Hopkins,
43, promises to turn the unbeaten Calzaghe into "an ordinary Joe".
whole fight and build up will feature on Lace DVDs 'Calzaghe v Hopkins
