Calzaghe Hungrier Than Ever

Calzaghe7Doubts about Calzaghe’s hunger for competition as he approaches his 36th birthday were at least partially dispelled today as he weighed in over a pound under the 168 pound limit.

    What did they do, lose the key to the sauna or something?

    “For gods sake let me out” a visibly panicked Joe Clazaghe said earlier, as father, Enzo attempted to contact a locksmith.
