Calzaghe has laughed off more than once the antics of Bernard Hopkins. Calzaghe laughed before Christmas when Hopkins stated he would "never lose to a white boy", and Calzaghe is laughing once again at Hopkins' latest. At a recent press conference, Hopkins warned that Calzaghe "better be willing to die."

Calzaghe who faces Hopkins on April 19th admits he is enjoying it all. "He's doing what he has to do to psyche himself up," said Calzaghe, adding "I'm enjoying it. This is a new phase for me, my first fight in the States."

Calzaghe realized what was missing in his career after watching Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs Ricky Hatton last December. "I came to watch the Ricky Hatton fight against Floyd Mayweather and saw the support he had and that's the only thing missing from my career, a big name, someone like Hopkins and all the bull that surrounds it."

Calzaghe added: "He can be the bad guy now but I'm going to be the bad guy come 19 April."

"I've been through all this before. I've been undefeated 17 years so nothing intimidates me."
