β€œThere’s a few. Kessler hit hard, but I’d probably go with Charles Brewer. My game plan was to outbox him, but Charles β€œThe Hatchet” Brewer I had seen knock out lots of guys. So I figure I’ll outbox him”, said Calzaghe.

β€œI remember in the first round he came out and whacked me right in the solar plexus. If you watch the tape, you see me take a deep breath and then go toe to toe for the rest of the fight. He buzzed me up a few times in that fight. Heavy-handed and dangerous from the first round till the 12th.”
