2005-09-10 Joe Calzaghe w pts 12 Evans Ashira, International Arena, Cardiff, Wales - WBO. Referee: Mark Nelson. Scorecards: 120-107, 120-108, 120-108. Dominating from the opening bell, the champion swarmed all over Ashira (168) with southpaw rights and lefts and following an accidental clash of heads in the second round the latter was cut over the left eye. Although Calzaghe (167½) continued to throw plenty of leather at Ashira, from thereon it was clear that something was up with the Welshman’s left hand as he stopped throwing it after the fourth and relied on his lead right to get him through the contest. Afterwards it transpired that Calzaghe had broken a metacarpal and would be unable to fight Jeff Lacy, regardless of the ongoing negotiations, in the immediate future.
