YOU’VE GOTTA LAUGH!

"UNLESS YOUR VICTOR MELDREW WITH’ ONE FOOT IN THE GRAVE’

You have to laugh when any one suggest that Jose Calzaghe is like Victor Meldrew (played by Shakespearean actor Richard Wilson) the cantankerous character in the hit TV series ‘One Foot In The Grave’.

Miserable looking Victor, whose face threatens to crack should he attempt to smile, would find a reason to grumble if he were to millions on the lottery.

The suggestion that Joe is the Welsh Victor Meldrew was made by WBC super-middleweight Carl Froch.

A bemused Carl told Livefight.com, “I think Joe’s a bit of a strange guy if I’m honest’ And I don’t mean that nastily, but I really think he is a grump. Like a Welsh Victor Meldrew.”

This was in reply to the comment made by Joe that Carl, ““Was a spoilt, little bitch.”

In a further attempt to rile Carl, Jose said with more than a hint of sarcasm, "Froch will like that

Carl may be many things but he is not ‘small’ and he is certainly not ‘a bitch.’

Joe let loose his view on Carl when he was interviewed on his ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ appearance and his his unbeaten boxing record was mentioned.

After the Victor Meldrew style comment on Joe, Carl continued with a series of verbal combinations:

Froch responded “One minute he gives me credit for my career and ‘good luck’ in the Super Six (Championship) – then 3 months later comes out with this.

He’s obviously just after a bit of publicity after his impression of Rigor Mortis on Strictly Embarrassing.”

“They say your personality comes through the art of dance. Well I think his did perfectly; and to think I voted for him too. “

He laughed. "I want my quid back."

“Along with his cherished record that he always blathers on about , that has more question marks on it than ‘The Riddler’s’ cat suit. Those are the only two subjects he mentions in every single tedious interview. He can only dine out on that record for so long. He needs to turn it in and put on those comfy retirement slippers."

“At the end of the day Joe Calzaghe is yesterday’s news and today’s fish and chip wrappers. It’s sad but true and one day we’ll all be the same– and that’s why I put no value on fame nor the sad people who chase it with every last breath like him.”

“I can only imagine he’ll be starring in Bingo adverts next. “

“Fame is wonderful if you have small children who idolise you, then it’s magic to see their little faces light up. But charity aside, fame amongst grown ups is overrated.”

“But back to Joe, I called him out for two years, closed in on him until he had to vacate or fight me – and we all know which option he took so we’ll just leave it at that. “

“If you want to come back and fight me, then get in line – if not, take your leotard and bore off.”

OUCH! PHEW!

Somehow, I don’t believe Joe will be singing to Carl the Welsh national song, ‘There’ll Be A Welcome In The Hillside …,” when he next thinks of Carl Froch.

More likely it will be. “What in the name of bloody Hell, is …

Oh, dear, it’s getting worse “I don’t believe it,” is a repeated saying of Victor M. and so is, "What in the name of bloody hell? It’s pure coincidence, Joe.

It’s best I take the advice of the Welsh songster, Tom Jones and return to the ‘Green, Green’ Grass of Home’ before I put one more foot in the …!

Oh, Oh, "I must to go, I've got to turn the gas off."

BOXING RETURNS TO BEING A SPORT OF THE SWEET SCIENCE AND CREATING EXCITEMENT THAT NO OTHERS SPORT IS ABLE TO EQUAL.

This was ‘Rocky’ and some of Thrilla in Manila rolled into one. It was sensational and at the end of each round you were left wondering what forthcoming excitement would there be the to better the previous three minutes.

The class of the Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier was if judged on their boxing ability of a higher grade but in terms ef excitement Carl Froch versus Jermain Taylor was a reasonable challenger.

Both Carl and Jermain deserve the highest praise. They were both mindset to win. They gave no quarter, asked for no quarter and delivered courageous performances reserved only for bravehearts.

This was not one of those matches made in the name of boxing, which are hyped to make high box office returns and in reality are often close to commercial presentation better suited to wrestling entertainment, and where the grunts and groans might as well be lip-synced; and where the action appear as well orchestrated as the fight scenes in ‘Raging Bull’.

How the UK TV moguls must have been cursing at their lack of experience and vision in not securing this contest of supreme courage and skill for a time period slot in their programming that would have sent the ratings soaring as viewers would have been treated to a spectacle of two warriors who gave their all in their quest for victory to secure the prime WBC World Super-Middle Championship

Each round was marginally won and lost.

The enormously satisfying manner in which Jermain Taylor delivered a straight left with the precision of an arrow; how his all-round boxing technique made the slithering and sliding of ‘The Cobra’ a time for punishment for Carl Froch.

In return the totally focused never-say-die spirit of Carl Froch would spell danger to his challenger each time his boxing became cpmpavy and tidy and his heavy punches penetrated.

The prefight talk that Jermain Taylor had somewhat lost his way in boxing was badly wrong. He showed quality and force that disproved those that had written-off the former World middleweight champion.

His outstanding performance only highlighted the superb win by Carl Froch that was climaxed by a magnificent last round whirlwind that left Jermain defenceless and viewers breathless.

For the first time ever the British hero was put on the canvas when in the third round heavy punches found their target. This was a never-to-be forgotten lesson that Carl must from hereon learn and borrow the probable reason President Obama is now resident in the White House and follow the direction of ‘CHANGE’.

The days of the snake charming, slithering and sliding has no place in the future for Carl Froch. Against intermediate boxers these chance entertaining tactics might be OK but against experienced top grade boxers they are as dangerous as walking through a heavily planted minefield.

The scoring in each round was close and I was surprised to hear the usually immaculate TV commentators John Rawling and Barry McGuigan resorting to over-use of descriptions on thedifference in points awarded to Jermain appear to be so far part from thatf Carl.

The fact they disagreed on the scoring for several rounds indicates that the scoring was marginal in each round. In America close fights are usually scored in favour of the defending champion, so it was a little surprising that two ringside judges had Jermain Taylor ahead on points at the end of the 11th.

Had referee Michael Ortega not stopped the fight at the almost perfect time in the 12th and last round the margin in which Carl Froch won this round had to gain victory for him.

The performance of referee Michael Ortega was superb. He is a class referee and like the best referees is hardly noticeable when the fight is in progress. Howver, he might care to remember that the referee’s decision is always final and he does to have to give a reason for stopping a fight.

On this occasion his timing was first class and the reason does not matter.

Another fulky deserving praise is the Coach/trainer to Carl Froch, Robert McCracken. The inter-round advice of Robert was spot on. Had Carl followed it more carefully he would have found the fight with less pain.

Robert was also suitably assertive ~
