British boxer Joe Calzaghe says his next fight could be his last.
Calzaghe unified the three world titles in the super-middleweight division when he beat Mikkel Kessler of Denmark last month, taking his record to 44-0.
“I have got two fights left — tops,” Calzaghe was quoted as saying in Wednesday’s editions of the Daily Mirror. “I might even have one more and then decide to pack it all in and then get on with the rest of my life. Who knows? There are plenty of other things I want to do.”
Calzaghe is one of the few boxers I’ve seen this year that’s really impressed me with his style and skills. The fact that I’ve just discovered him and he’s now nearing retirement kinda sucks. Must be kinda like how people feel after watching ‘that Randy guy’ beat Gabriel Gonzaga.
