Calzaghe rules out rematch with Hopkins

Joe Calzaghe has ruled out a rematch with Bernard Hopkins following his split-decision win over the American in Las Vegas on Saturday night.

The Welshman says he has no reason to grant the 43-year-old another chance and will instead look elsewhere to extend his 45-fight unbeaten record.

Calzaghe is expected to turn his attention to Roy Jones, who has expressed an interest in fighting the 36-year-old on his home ground in Wales.
