2006 highlight: World title defeat of unbeaten American Jeff Lacy.

Calzaghe's demolition of Lacy, which unified the WBO and IBF belts, was one of the great British world championship performances.

The super middleweight star's crushing victory catapulted him into the top 10 pound-for-pound fighters on the planet.

He saw off Cameroon's Sakio Bika in October - his 42nd victory in 42 fights - before giving up the IBF title as he eyes big scalps in 2007.

Calzaghe is the longest reigning world champion boxer.
