Calzaghe wants superfightTriumphant Joe Calzaghe last night dared American great Bernard Hopkins to stop talking the talk and agree to a 10million superfight in America next March. Calzaghe cemented his claim to greatness by destroying Dane Mikkel Kessler in Cardiff in the early hours of yesterday morning to become the undisputed world s

uper-middleweight champion. Then he turned his attention to Hopkins and roared: Ill go and fight him in his garden if thats what it takes. Hopkins has backed o

ut of a fight with him once befo

re but a few months ago publi

cly called on Calzaghe to face him in a New York showdown. Bernard Hopkins should have a bit of balls for a change, Calzaghe said. This t

ime, lets hope he doesnt back out. Calzaghes unanimous points vict

ory in front of 50,000 fans at the Millennium Stadium gave the Welshman Kessle

rs WBA and WBC belts to go with his WBO title. After the fight, Calzaghe said he 

had nothing left to prove

in his division and wanted to move up to light-heavyweight to face one-time middleweight colossus Hopkins, now 43. The clash, already being pencilled in for March either at Yankee Stadium or Madison Square Garden in New Yo

rk, would earn Calzaghe about 5m, twice what he got for beating Kessler. Calzaghe said: Ive been 10 years a champ and won four belts, what else is there to do? All those guys, Roy Jones, Bernard Hopkins, lets do it...I just want big fights now.
