prime vs. prime, who would win? we could put it at super middle, or even light heavy whatever you prefer.

 

i think toney is just all around too much skill for calzaghe to contend with. if joe was doing his usual volume punching he would be open for toney's counterpunching and underrated speed and power. so basically after the first 6 rounds or so it would be pretty much up to toney when he puts joe away. so toney by KO in the second half of the fight.

 

but i could definitely be wrong and i want to hear what others think

 

its kind of sad that this fight never happened...

 

 

 

edit: 4got to click add option 4 draw, so if u think its a draw just say so

Apart from the fact that James was already fighting at Cruiser when Joe first won his title from Chris Eubank, and in his only attempt to make L/Heavy after that he failed. I really dont know. In as much as the heavier Tyson in his prime would stop Jones Jr, yeah I can see Toney stopping J Cal. But that is the only comparison.

yeah i know its different times thats why its a fantasy fight, so prime vs. prime @ super middle, who would win

 

& i dunno about tyson being able to catch jones im not really sure what you mean by that comparison

 

but thx 4 the input

In that case of the 7 fights James had at S / Middle I think Joe beats the same 6 that Toney beat comfortably ( Jones Jr is probably a different thread altogether ) but James was killing himself to make the weight. So at S / M Joe wins fairly easily I think.

 

My point is that I dont believe James's prime was at S / M with his weight problems.

yeah thats a good point about toney's prime i think i might have 2 agree with that.

 

i still think toney's style would beat calzaghe's style even being weight drained

CAlzaghe by Ko

 

how do u figure? toney has never been stopped and calzaghe doesnt hit that hard

 

plus i disagree with what you said about calzaghe having faster hands

 

and what do you mean "Change Taylor with Joe ;);))".... im a lil confused. r u saying what you think would happen if calzaghe fought jermain taylor?

 

?
