I agree with Joe, his work rate does it for me. What you think?By Paul Gorst, Reporter

Joe Calzaghe feels that he would have been victorious over Andre Ward had they ever fought each other.
The classy American is widely regarded as the finest super-middleweight in the world and currently holds both the WBA and Ring Magazine titles for that particular division.
However, Calzaghe, who retired from the sport unbeaten, believes that had the two fought, he would have defeated the 29-year-old.
"I would have beaten Ward," Calzaghe told Sky Sports' 'The Gloves Are Off' show.
"Like I say, people can judge styles, but I can adapt to every style and mine was harder to hit. I think Ward is good in his comfort zone, but I would have got him out of that and wouldn't have fancied it. It would have been a good fight.
"There's no ego [because I'm unbeaten], It is belief. I think it would have been a chess match."
The Welshman's last of his 46 wins was against Roy Jones Jnr in 2008.
