  • The fight was stopped by referee Terry O'Connor after a barrage of punches had Manfredo on the ropes. Manfredo and some commentators called the stoppage "premature," because Manfredo did not appear hurt, although people such as Emanuel Steward suggested that it would have been "only a minute or two" before Calzaghe had "ended things properly."
  • Calzaghe tied Bernard Hopkins mark for 20 title defenses.
  • Calzaghe had vacated his IBF title because he did not want to fight his mandatory challenger Robert Stieglitz, due to the lack of Stieglitz's popularity. Manfredo was more popular, because he fought in the ESPN-series "The Contender".
  • Calzaghe defends his Ring Magazine super middleweight world title.
