By Johnny Benz, Doghouse Boxing (July 22, 2008)  
Rick Reeno of MaxBoxing and BoxingScene is reporting that he has been informed by a reliable source that Joe Calzaghe has suffered an injury. According to Reeno's report, Calzaghe has a hand injury.

Reeno further reports that due to the injury, Calzaghe will not be able to move forward with his planned fight against Roy Jones Jr that was scheduled for Madison Square Gardens on the date of September 20th.

In regards to another date to pit the two fighters together the source indicated that a November date is possible, but there is no word if New York's Madison Square Garden will remain host to the event

In regards to the possibility that the fight was being called off due to pending legal action by Frank Warren against Calzaghe, the source indicated that was not true and Calzaghe was indeed genuinely injured.
