Simple question guys. Poll coming.
True, I went for Kessler too, but I almost went for Hopkins as well as Lacy because it is soooo difficult to look good against Hopkins, the guy knows it allKessler for me, all things considered it was an excellent win.
Unbeaten opponent in his prime, that in terms of style had attributes that could cause Calzaghe problems. Indeed he was doing an excellent job for four or five rounds, before Calzaghe switched and he had no answer.
It's a shame that the rest of Kessler's prime never amounted to much, certainly not what appeared possible back then.
I don't really count the Hopkins fight because I didn't give him the nod.... he barely landed a clean shot all night, all he succeeded in doing for me was tiring Hopkins out, Joe was being stood on his head something silly in the early rounds. Was like man against boy, or rather great grandpa vs the whipper snapper.
