I did watch the fight and whenever Max Kellerman would talk, all I could think about was the hot fire he spit in that rap video. Calzaghe was the aggressor but a lot of his punches were just slaps instead of clean hits like Hopkins was hitting.

i would have watched this fight, but the fact that Bernard is older than my dad just seemed weird.
