Joe Calzaghe: “I will hurt Bernard Hopkins”

By Nathan King: If it’s one thing Bernard Hopkins and Joe Calzaghe have succeeded at lately, it’s the constant verbal exchanges between the two. From Hopkins’ “I will never lose to a white boy” comment to Calzaghe’s “I’m going to punish Bernard Hopkins,” there’s been a back and forth trash-talk battle between the two for some time now. Why should it stop now with the fight just a few short weeks away?

Joe Calzaghe released this latest statement: "I'm always going to throw a lot of punches, but in this fight he'll be moving a lot and looking to land a big shot, a right hand, over the top," Calzaghe said. "I'm aiming to sit on my punches a bit more and am going to hurt him. I will use my speed but I'm definitely going to look at the power punches and with the added weight, I've definitely noticed I'm punching harder."

These two are certainly adding hype to this fight, and for good reason. It’s and important fight between two fighters at the top of their division and pound-for-pound fighters, an aging legend, and a fighter with still more to prove. It should be a good one, and on April 19th in Las Vegas, the world will see it.
