HBO's three-part series Calzaghe-Jones: 24/7, premiering THIS SUNDAY October 26th, will take you behind the scenes as two legends fight for a place in history.

He first grabbed the spotlight at the 1988 Summer Olympic Games in Seoul, where he was named the finest boxer of the Games. Starting his pro career soon after, Jones quickly piled up championship belts and accolades, reigning as the sport's pound-for-pound king during a significant portion of the 1990s and the first three years of this decade. His career mark of 52-4, 38 KOs includes a win over Felix Trinidad earlier this year.
A native of Newbridge, Wales, where he is trained by his father, Joe Calzaghe is the United Kingdom's premier fighter, with an undefeated record of 45-0, 32 KOs that includes a record-tying 21 successful defenses of his world super middleweight title. Calzaghe migrated to the 175-pound division last April when he fought for the first time in the United States.
