Calzaghe says his Nov. 8 fight at Garden will be his last |
CARDIFF, Wales -- Britain's Joe Calzaghe said on Thursday he will finish his 15-year boxing career after his light-heavyweight fight against American Roy Jones Jr. in November.
Calzaghe, who had indicated in April he would have one more fight, said in a news conference that the Nov. 8 bout at Madison Square Garden would indeed be the end of the road.
"It's a massive fight and it will be my last," said Calzaghe, 36. "I've known for a while when I want to go out and as long as I put on a great performance this is my time.
"If I can do that then I've achieved everything I've wanted to achieve in my career. I would never forgive myself if I came to my last fight and threw it all away. Complacency is not in my mindset.
"But I know in my heart this is the right time to stop and my aim is to remain undefeated."
Sucks to see him retire. Hopefully he will go out on top.
HW: Andrei Arlovski, Cain Velazquez
LHW: Tito Ortiz, Forrest Griffin, Rampage, Ryan Bader
MW: Rich Franklin, Gegard Mousasi, Jorge Santiago
