An Evening with Joe Calzaghe & Guests
An Evening with Joe Calzaghe & Guests – a night not to be missed on any sports fan’s calendar!
Joe will be appearing at the Best Western Moat House in Stoke-on-Trent for a glitzy dinner show to talk about his remarkable career.
Joe Calzaghe CBE, MBE was born in Hammersmith, London, England on 23rd March 1972 to Sardinian father Enzo and Welsh mother Jackie.
Prior to his retirement in February 2009 as Britain’s only undefeated boxing world champion, Calzaghe was the longest-reigning boxing world champion of the modern era. He has a fight record of 46-0, 32 of which by TKO.
The former Ring Magazine World Light-Heavyweight Champion, as well as former WBO, WBA, WBC, IBF, The Ring Magazine and the British super middleweight champion, Calzaghe held the WBO super-middleweight title for over ten years until he relinquished the title to concentrate on fighting at light-heavyweight.
Calzaghe holds notable wins over Chris Eubank, Jeff Lacy, Mikkel Kessler, Bernard Hopkins and Roy Jones Jr. and was trained by his father Enzo at the Newbridge boxing club in South Wales.
In 2003 Calzaghe was awarded an MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List, and was further rewarded with a CBE in 2008. In 2007 Calzaghe also became BBC Sports Personality of the Year, making him the first Welsh winner of this award since show jumper David Broome in 1960.
