Please. Clazaghe is known for ducking guys and fighter lesser opposition worse than Jones ever was. The Super Middleweight Division was pathetic and Joe sat there for years and years. At least Jones moved up beating both Hopkins and James Toney.
Hopkins never ducked anyone and would've wrecked Calzaghe in his prime. A lot of people had Hopkins winning that decision as it was. The fight was that close.
Since Jones toyed with Hopkins when he was at his best, I'd say a prime Roy Jones would've decimated Calzaghe.
As for a fight between both guys in their current states, you gotta go with Joe at this point, but Jones is still a very dangerous opponent.
