Nervous Calzaghe comes rock bottom on Strictly



A nervous-looking Joe Calzaghe lurched out with his dance partner Kristina tonight on the first episode of Strictly Come Dancing, to perform a tango in front of judges who later gave their opinions on the former boxing champion.

Poor Joe, wearing a face like a bloodhound and moving around the dance floor with the finesse of forklift truck, he was roundly mauled by the highly critical judging panel.

"It was a performance that only a mother could love!" commented one judge, before they gave Joe and his dance partner the lowest score of the evening.

In an all too familiar turn of events, the boxer finds himself being floored in the very first round (not too dissimilar to his fights with Roy Jones and Bernard Hopkins).

Joe and Kristina now find themselves looking to turn their luck around with another performance tomorrow evening to keep their competition hopes alive.

Let's hope he can turn on the moves in round two that made him a boxing superstar. Otherwise the voting public may throw in the towel.
