Calzaghe: "I've been fighting for 25 years. I have this face for a reason. You will lose and it's going to be so sweet when I beat your ass. I can't wait to send him out. He will lose to me. I throw 1,000 punches a round. He throws 12. He's just talk. I'm going to whip his ass. He doesn't stand a chance."
