When you know yourself that you've come through preparation injury free and you've done everything, you've done the work in the gym and the rounds of sparring, it fills you with confidence.

Two big punchers, you've got to keep your chin down, keep your defense up, don't be careless or open, box sensibly, control the centre of the ring and when he lets his punches go, believe me he's gonna know all about it.

[Tyson] Fury is big and [Wladimir] Klitschko's not used to fighting someone his size. If Fury can stop Klitschko grabbing and avoid that big right hand, he's got a chance. In the heavyweight division, it only takes one punch.

Joe Calzaghe

He's gonna try and stand back, mess me about a bit, be cagey and hold on the inside and make it one of them fights that are boring. I don't wanna make a boring fight. I don't like to be involved in boring fights!

Joe Calzaghe

I honestly think that a Pavlik fight would be easier than Jones because styles make fights. He's one dimensional, comes in straight lines, I love that.

Joe Calzaghe

I don't know if I have the patience and I don't have a trainers license but I will help out. Whether I want to do that full time, I doubt it.

Joe Calzaghe

I know Haye's a good fighter as well and he beat Mormeck but Mormeck is not Enzo Maccarinelli and does not have the speed, stamina or punching power.

Joe Calzaghe

I've been eight years with this beautiful little thing and I've got a partner for him now. After eight years of trying to unify the titles, it's going to be pretty hard to give this up.

Joe Calzaghe

I feel blessed that I managed to fight 46 fights undefeated, that I was a world champion for 11 years, one of the longest reigning champions of all time and I like to think that I come out looking pretty good.

Joe Calzaghe

If I look at the fighters that are coming through, fighters like Carl Froch for instance, do I worry about fighters like that? Course not, I could eat them for breakfast.

Joe Calzaghe

I keep my feet on the ground, keep dedicated, keep focused, underestimate nobody and obviously you need the ability, talent and everything else that goes with it.

Joe Calzaghe

It's not my place to say how good I was because the thing is, every champion from every era is a great fighter and it's up to one person's interpretation to who is actually the best.
