Boxing fans? Joe Calzaghe Vs Jeff Lacy


Who will be watching this tonight? I don't know which U.S. networks will screen it but the programme is scheduled to start at 9pm EST.
This pre-fight review is pretty funny:-

Calzaghe ready for 'pathetic' Lacy
Joe Calzaghe has laughed off Jeff Lacy's attempts to win over the Manchester fight fans ahead of the pair's world super-middleweight title unification showdown on Sunday morning.

Welshman Calzaghe branded the Lacy team's arrival at the head-to-head press conference dressed in English football shirts - with promoter Gary Shaw wielding a flag of St George - as "pathetic".

Lacy knows only too well the volume of the derision he is likely to face in the early hours, having sat ringside at the same MEN Arena venue for Ricky Hatton's famous win over Kostya Tszyu last June.

Shaw said: "When we go into the ring we are going to be defending English people because all you ever hear from Joe Calzaghe is about Italy and Wales.

"We expect over 19,000 people to be booing us when we get up into that ring but when we leave the ring after the fight those same 19,000 will be cheering Jeff Lacy."

Despite the scheduled 0230 GMT start time to accommodate the demands of American television, the clamour for tickets has been such that the venue has been extended beyond its original 16,000 capacity.

Calzaghe has been angling for such a career-defining fight for a number of years and despite continuing to drift with the bookmakers this week he is more confident than ever of success.

"I have been waiting eight years for this fight and I can't wait," said Calzaghe. "It is the sort of fight all boxers dream of and I cannot wait to unify the titles."

Florida 28-year-old Lacy continued to let his ebullient promoter Shaw do most of the talking as he came head to head with Calzaghe for the first time in fight week.

Lacy only became animated when he was accused of disrespecting Calzaghe recently by questioning the power of some of his punches - and vowed he is taking nothing for granted.

He said: "I have trained for this fight with more intensity, more focus and more desire. I have been sparring with Winky Wright and everything has been on a higher level.

"I never said Joe Calzaghe slapped. I respect what he has done and I see myself as the underdog. But I am just focused and ready for the fight."

Despite Lacy's assertions to the contrary he has come to be viewed as a narrow favourite to unify the titles after an impressive 2005 in contrast to more injury worries surrounding Calzaghe.

Lacy responded to a delay in their contest which had been originally slated for November by bashing up leading contender Scott Pemberton while Calzaghe recovered from another bad hand problem.

Until that point Lacy's lack of experience had been seen to be his major drawback against Calzaghe, who is unbeaten in almost twice as many fights as his opponent.

Promoter Frank Warren said: "It is a 50-50 fight and whichever way you look at it it is one of the most exciting fights I have been involved in.

"Every fight for every fighter is a career-defining fight but Joe has been dreaming of his chance to unify the super-middleweight titles. He is a fresh 33 years old and the longest reigning champ around."

I don't know much about Lacy-any opinions?????

Still like boxing but there is a little too much man on man hugging action. U.F.C. is where it's at!

I beleive Lacy will win. younger, might be a little more hungry too. Too bad it's on Showtime. I have HBO and will settle for for the Cotto vs Branco, should be a good fight though.

I was wondering where it was being broadcast.But Showtime is not pay per view is it?

Anyway I guess Lacy is the favourite but Calzaghe is a hard bastard so I think it will be entertaining.
