One Last Time - Setanta

Share Article

Setanta Sport: 8th of November is a historic night as Joe Calzaghe will possibly step into the ring for the last time, hanging up his gloves after an illustrious career and hopefully with a 46-0 record.

I don't want to push it too far, one more fight from me and then that is it, I'm done

In an interview on BBC Radio 5 Calzaghe stated that "I don't want to push it too far, one more fight from me and then that is it, I'm done," the one more fight he referred to being against ROY JONES, JR. with his 52-4 record.

The "Pride of Wales" has made his first trip to New York to face his opponent in the legendary Madison Square Garden and be sure to catch every second of the live action only on Setanta Sports. The fight won't be a walk in the park for Calzaghe as Jones is recognised as one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the world after winning five World Championships in four different weight classes (middleweight, super-middleweight, light-heavy and heavyweight). The American will no doubt be trying to extend his current winning streak in the Garden, as it is a happy hunting ground for him after he beat Puerto Rican Felix "Tito" Trinidad there in January.

Calzaghe is realistic about the task at hand, realising that his opponent will be no pushover, but he will strive to retire unbeaten. He is no stranger to overcoming the odds after his first round knock-down at the hands of his last opponent Bernard Hopkins before finally edging him in a judge's split decision.

So be sure to sign up to Setanta to witness another, possibly the final, chapter of Joe Calzaghe's amazing career!
