BoxingScene.com reported on Tuesday that rumors were circulating in the UK that a Calzaghe comeback fight was being shopped around to the major UK television networks by soccer agent Barry Silkman, and retired Robin Reid was rumored as a potential comeback opponent.
A Calzaghe spokesman told
UK-based website, Live Fight, claim to have received "100% confirmation" from sources close to Robin Reid, that he had in fact been contacted about a possible comeback fight with Calzaghe.
