:boxing: Boxing Bits ::11.13.08:: Calzaghe Runs Through Jones

Joe Calzaghe laid a beatdown on Roy Jones, Jr. and Arthur Abraham took care of business on an eventful weekend (and an old ghost from Jones' past scores an ironic victory on Tuesday...).

[C] IBF Middleweight Champion Arthur Abraham RTD6 Raul Marquez [PPV]
--No surprise here, despite Abraham's excitement over fighting Marquez. The challenger and former champion was no real threat to Abraham to begin with.
