Joe Calzaghe has retired from boxing with immediate effect.
This is the end of a glittering career filled with blood, sweat and tears.
For Joe to bow out undefeated is special too.
The question remains whether he will one day be tempted out or retirement by a big-money fight.
This is truly the end of a superb era for super-middleweight and light-heavyweight boxing.
It is the best decision he could have made as there isn't really anyone out there worth fighting. He'd beaten the two guys he wanted to beat and I doubt he would have been motivated enough to fight Froch.
What is your most memorable Calzaghe fight? For me it has to be when he destroyed Jeff Lacy.
