Description : Here we have an original full-size HBO boxing pay-per-view fight poster for the 'Ring Magazine' world light heavyweight championship title bout held at theThomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, on the 19th April 2008.

Joe Calzaghe defeated Bernard Hopkins to win The Ring Light Heavyweight Championship by a split decision in his first ever fight in the United States. Joe Calzaghe confirmed his stature as one of Britain's greatest boxers with a stunning, if controversial, victory in Las Vegas. His points victory over the wily old veteran Bernard Hopkins was not pretty and it was not even decisive, but somehow the 36-year-old Welshman recovered from a first round knock-down to gain a split decision verdict that will rank as one of the grittiest performances by a Briton fighting away from home.

Judges Chuck Giampa (116-111) and Ted Gimza (115-112) scored the fight for Calzaghe, while judge Adalaide Byrd (114-113) scored the fight for Hopkins. HBO's unofficial ringside judge Harold Lederman scored the bout 116-111 for Calzaghe.
