Undefeated Joe Calzaghe hangs up his gloves

“I’ve also achieved every goal I’ve ever set myself in the ring – there are no more mountains left to climb. I’ve been lucky to have had the most fantastic career and I owe my thanks to all the many people who have been at my side and helped me to achieve everything. Of course my special thanks go to my family and, especially to my Dad Enzo who first encouraged me to put on the gloves and who was at my side and in my corner for every one of my fights.”

Having been the victor in all of his 46 professional fights, Joe from the Cwmcarn valley earns another title: Britain’s only undefeated world champion in boxing. Perhaps, any sport. Calzaghe, now, will never taste defeat.
