"I'm delighted that the BBC will be showing my fight, it was certainly the best performance in my pro career."

Calzaghe stretched his unbeaten record to 44 fights against Kessler at the Millennium Stadium, making his 21st title defence in the process.

Promoter Frank Warren added: "Saturday night was, for me, the greatest night in my 25 years in boxing and I'm absolutely delighted that the BBC will be replaying it this weekend."

BBC director of sport Roger Mosey said: "There has been a tremendous reaction to what was a great fight and we are responding to public demand by making it available on free-to-air television."

Straight after Calzaghe's bout, you will be able to watch a re-run on BBC Interactive of Enzo Maccarinelli's defence of his WBO cruiserweight title against Mohamed Azzaoui.
