The Big Fight: We're behind you Joe Calzaghe

I'm disappointed by the leaders of the Welsh Assembly Government due to their lack of support for Joe Calzaghe this weekend.

Not that I condone two men beating the living daylights out of each other, which I suspect may have been taken into account as demonstrated by their hesitation. However, after jumping on the sporting success bandwagon by openly supporting Wales' success on the rugby and football field, the very least they could do is send Joe and the team their best wishes.

This aside, I always find it odd when athletes in their prime play down their opponent's achievements and abilities. I guess boxing is different in this respect, with the need to psyche out the opponent, but surely there is more glory in beating an excellent and much regarded opponent than a poor one.

This fight is generally regarded as not an easy one. Best wishes to you Joe - we're behind you!

They've been silent on this sporting event. Perhaps Joe isn't Welsh enough for them these days.

can't find the link, not sure if WAG are friends with Frank Warren after Joe's fight with Mikel Kessler, they wanted advertising in the Millennium Stadium etc, Frank Warren's people offered them a deal and they turned it down because they said it was to much money, maybe that's got something to do with it.

A much needed big smile at lunch time.
