[WBO super middleweight champion Joe Calzaghe has lashed out at the Gary Shaw, promoter of IBF champ Jeff Lacy.] I want the Lacy fight now more than ever both to prove to all my fans what they already know, that I'm the best, and to shut Shaw's mouth once and for all, ... And as for me going to America for the contest, well the agreement is that Lacy should fight me over here so we'll see if he honours that agreement or if he ducks out. I'm the man in the super-middleweight division and Lacy needs me more than I need him and I'm certainly not going jump just because he clicks his fingers. I know and he knows I will beat him badly when the fight does go ahead and after what has happened in the past five days I can't wait to prove that.
Lots of things can also happen between now and <br/> then (November 5th),not least among them injuries. I have had problems <br/> with my hand and back on and off over the years, which is hardly surprising <br/> when you have been fighting since the age of nine like I have. My left <br/> hand swells up after almost every fight.
