Joe Calzaghe Disses Kelly Pavlik
By Johnny Benz, Doghouse Boxing (Sept 18, 2008)  
Joe Calzaghe is refusing to take any lip from Kelly Pavlik. Calzaghe who is set to face Roy Jones Jr. on November 8th at New York's famed Madison Square Gardens, is striking down any claims he is facing Jones Jr. out of fear of fighting Pavlik.

Speaking to the Sun Uk, Calzaghe blasted: "Pavlik is just trying to make a name for himself on my back. I tried to get a fight with him twice before. We approached him immediately after I beat Jeff Lacy in
2006 but he declined."

Calzaghe claims that isn't the only time Pavlik has run from him, telling the publication: "He fought and beat Jermain Taylor instead and immediately had a rematch with him to dodge me again.

Calzaghe feels Pavlik is a coward for acting all tough only after he has signed to fight someone else. Pavlik is scheduled to face Bernard Hopkins on October 18 at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic. "It's easy to come out of the woodwork and mouth off when you've already signed to fight somebody else,"said Calzaghe.
