Boxer Joe Calzaghe has abandoned his WBC super middleweight title. Calzaghe hopes to set up a big payday with a fight against former champion Roy Jones Jr.
The 36-year-old Calzaghe is still the WBO and WBA super middleweight champion. He would have to move up to light heavyweight to fight Jones. Calzaghe fought as a light heavyweight earlier this year when he defeated Bernard Hopkins. The proposed fight with Roy Jones jr. would happen in September.
With the retirement of Floyd Mayweather, Calzaghe is one of the world’s top boxers. He has never lost a fight (45-0) in his 15 year professional career.
