Today in Manchester, England WBO Super Middleweight Champion Joe Calzaghe began the symbolic countdown that will culminate in the downfall of IBF Champion Jeff Lacy. The Welshman confidently predicted that the American's brief title reign, lengthened by the consumption of such recycled Calzaghe victims such as Omar Sheika and Robin Reid, will come to an end shortly after 2AM early Sunday morning at the cavernous M.E.N Arena. As the focal point of promoters Sports Networks' talent packed evening, the occasion will mark the first time that Lacy will enter the ring facing a true champion. Team Calzaghe trusts that the understandable concerns of Lacy fans will be allayed by the scheduled delivery of a large floral arrangement to Lacy's private post-fight suite at Manchester General Hospital. Tickets to Judgement Day can be purchased at www.joecalzaghe.com
and those unable to attend in person can watch the broadcast of Calzaghe's triumphant unification on ITV in the UK starting at 11:10PM GMT while those in the US can tune into Showtime's transmission commencing at 9PM ET/PT.
