After becoming only the second recipient of the BBC Wales Sport Personality of the Year in successive years it really is time that Calzaghe is recognised nationally as the great sportsman that he is. (Ian Woosnam is the other person to have won it in successive years.)
Of course, I’m biased – For some it’s Ali, for others Tyson and maybe even a few would state Bruno as the boxer who got them into the sport, for me it’s Calzaghe. Style, grace and an elegance that makes more brutal pugilists looks like shabby thugs.
So I support Joe for the overall BBC Sport Personality of the Year – a sportsman who has actually won something meaningful (unlike contenders Hamilton, Wilkinson, Robinson and Murray).
