Joe Calzaghe's career

Calzaghe's wins over Lacy and Kessler made him a household name in Britain and gave him the public recognition he craved.

In December 2007, Calzaghe was named BBC Sports Personality of the Year, with his old stable-mate Ricky Hatton finishing third in the vote.

Calzaghe was in Las Vegas for Hatton's ill-fated clash with Floyd Mayweather when the result was announced, looking to lure American legend Bernard Hopkins into a fight.
