Reid had previously never been KO'd/ or knocked down if i remember.. yet that night he was allover the ring,
the only thing im wondering about Jeff is how he'll be without a home crowd behind him, but its not like the english fans are huge fans of calzaghe anyways.
You don't estimate there will be a large home field advantage for Calzaghe (Like Hatton vs Tsyzu? The electricity that night was a big plus for Ricky). Yeah, I know Reid never got knocked down before that night, but I think that first knockdown did the most damage and he wasn't going to last after that. If Calzaghe decides to mix it up like his last two fights, I think he's going to get squashed, but if he's able to be a little more tactical and counter Lacy's bull rush type pressure, I think he's got the weapons and variety to beat Lacy.
