Beyer turns down Calzaghe, now vs Thysse on Feb 28

15.01.04 - WBC super middleweight champion Markus Beyer will defend his title on February 28 against South African Andre Thysse (14-2) in Dresden, Germany. Beyer was offered a shot at WBO champ Joe Calzaghe by Frank Warren - but turned it down. I phoned up Beyer's agent and offered the fight to them sometime in April. But they said they had another fight lined up. It's no surprise, because these Germans don't want their fighters to face live opponents. said Warren on his website
