Bentex, The Fight of the Millenium

Bentex, a boxing clash this Saturday of magnificent magical titanic proportions, I've never seen a fight of such distinguished and faultless careers on the line.

A true clash this Saturday for complete unification of all belts. If you haven't heard, this is the fight of the Millenium!

Welshman, Joe Calzaghe, 35, super middleweight WBO champion commands a superior 43 wins no losses and devestating KOs record of 32 who'll contest the Great Dane, Mikkel Kessler - 28 - WBA and WBC super middleweight champion who's throughput is 39 wins 0 losses with a train of 29 KOs.



All the great fighters in America are weighing in and giving their expertise on this encounter and HBO will televise it live on Saturday night. Most pundits are saying the winner will go down in history as one if not the greatest super middleweight this century and for many years prior.

The Danish WBA and WBC champion Kessler jokes that he hasn't "thought of losing, let alone come close to losing." Kessler has power and youth on his side.



The Welshman Calzaghe, as a pro has held a world title for more than 10 years continuously. He hasn't lost since he dropped an amateur bout in 1990. He has crafty experience and tactical know how on his side.

Bentex, are you up to date on this fight, this is Fight of the Century. I've never seen 89 wins and 0 losses between boxers ever in my life, this is an one-in-a-lifetime experience and a grand marquee must-see. Two Europeans, a Welshman and a Dane too boot .

Yes mate I'm really looking forward to this! It's also on sport2 Hungary for other people who want to watch I must admit I want Joe to win. He just gained a lot of respect from me from when he totally owned Lacey.
Before that he didn't get much appreciation from me. He said himself the bigger the fight the better he performs. I hope we get a performance from both of them! As for fight of the millennium hmmm? isn't Floyd Mayweather vs. Ricky Hatton just as big? Whoever wins that will go down in history too.

I predict an early knock-out. There's a lot of pressure sitting upon the shoulders of respective combatants, one won't stand up to this new and exceptional test.

My tip is for Kessler. After all he defeated the fiercest fighting machine the world has ever known, a 'man' who destroyed ferocious grizzlies while training in dense woods. I speak, of course, of Anthony 'The Man' Mundine.

I went to a local tavern to see the fight on HBO, but it was a premium event so I couldn't watch it.

How about that, the Welshman unifies at the belts by unanimous decision. Kessler was controlling the bout till round 9, rounds 10-12 is when Calzaghe really poured it on. There were over 40,000 Welsh roaring fans in the stadium, wish I could have seen the bout.

That's because it's Hungarian, not because it's boxing.

I just watched it decent fight. Calzaghe totally dominated the whole fight. I dunno what you're talking about from round 9 Kessler won round 2 and 4...maybe another somewhere but Joey stamped his authority early on. As the fight went on Kessler only had moments. But in those moments he did his Calzaghe hard. Much harder than he received. But he took them well. Now he's undisputed champ

ps, I love the Hungarian commentators laughing at the thought to Calzaghe stepping up to light heavyweight and fighting Erdei but I dunno why. If Calzaghe steps up he will have to fight Erdei being both WBO (German) champs.
