Next up was a sideshow involving the combatants in what could be one of 2008’s great match-ups, Bernard Hopkins and Joe Calzaghe. The pair had already clashed angrily in the MGM media center earlier in the day, with Hopkins barking at the Welshman that he would "never lose to a white boy."

News of the encounter had filtered through to the crowd, and whereas Sugar Shane Mosley, Juan-Manuel Marquez, Marco Antonio Barrera and Oscar De La Hoya all received a respectful ovation as they were paraded on stage, "The Executioner" was greeted with a chorus of boos.

Minutes later, Calzaghe was brought out and he and Hopkins stood face-to-face before being separated. The pro-Calzaghe crowd immediately rounded on Hopkins once again, raining down taunting songs on the man from Philadelphia.

I would love to see Calzaghe beat Hopkin's ass.
I hate him.
What a piece of garbage.

I think this had fight of the year written all over it about five years ago. However this fight is gonna happen a bit to late. Its a shame to because the Brits will see a win by Joe as vindication for the Hatton debacle. I just can see Hopkins winning this if he fights like he has the past few years.

I honestly have no interest in this fight.
Calzaghe should have a few other guys on his mind but must want a payday NOW!
