Ward comfortably on points.

No way would sheer workrate get a decision over Ward. Ward has/had greater power, better footwork, faster hands, better ringcraft.

They would bet 1/3 ward, 5/2 calzaghe and I would have one of my largest ever bets on the former.

Can any of you gve a single reason other than workrate why Calzaghe wuld have any chance whatoever.

Ok on further thoughts I would make Ward 1/4 and bet it.

He has/had superior hand speed and punches at least as twice as hard as Calzaghe. The only possible advantage Calazghe would have would be greater output and he would land just about zero clean.

They would have made Calzaghe a small FAV over a prime Froch and Ward completely schooled the later without leaving 1st gear.

Calzaghe would have made Froch look like a bloke trying to start a fight after 15 pints

Ward did not have great power at all.

It would have been a close fight , likely controversial decision .

Joe was unbeatable, the fighters mind.
Re watch some of his fights and wards.
Only one winner.

One for the purists...in other words a borefest.

Ward. Calzaghe didn't look that great vs Hopkins who made it awkward, Ward would have made it even more awkward. He beat Hopkins mainly because he had a better engine, an advantage he wouldn't really have vs Ward.

calzaghe was a very good fighter but was not the best of his era. got roy jones well past his prime. a young jones would have been much to good for calzaghe.
