The Pride

Reassuringly symmetrical intentions cannoned through the generations on Father's Day when I gave my Dad a DVD of the Calzaghe/Hopkins fight, and my son gifted me "No Ordinary Joe", Calzaghe's autobiography.

I'm glad that he hinted yesterday that a fight with Roy Jones Jr in November is likely to be his swansong. Win or lose against a legend like Jones his legacy as the greatest ever British fighter will be secure.

What could he possibly get from a fight with Kelly Pavlik except the chance of an upset?

Prediction: Post Calzaghe, Andre Ward will be the next long reigning boss of the super middleweights.
