What Calzaghe didn’t tell us was he would take 50,000 fans with him when he fought the Dane at Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium.
That dark place was the dark side of the moon and we were taken there by an out-of-this-world performance that finally marked Calzaghe’s arrival as one of the best fighters on the planet.
It was a long journey to get there as Calzaghe beat the immensely-talented Kessler in his 44th fight in November 2007 to take the WBC, WBA and WBO super-middleweight belts. Two bouts later that was it.
