War Of The Worlds: Joe Calzaghe vs. Robin Reid
Elite super middleweight Britons collide when undefeated WBO Champion Joe Calzaghe defends his title against former WBC Champion Robin Reid. Calzaghe starts to take a lead after four rounds before Reid finds a home for his right hand in the fifth and sixth. Referee Roy Francis docks the challenger a point for low blows in the eighth round after multiple warnings for various infractions throughout the bout, but Reid comes back to snap Calzaghe's head around with some huge right hands in the ninth. Reid continues to pour it on over the final three rounds but loses a controversial split decision from judges who are widely torn on the winner, and Calzaghe escapes with his title intact.
