CALZAGHE'S MEGA DEAL; END OF THE DREAM Hitman faces up to his first defeat by magical Mayweather.

Byline: OLIVER HOLT

JOE CALZAGHE is close to securing a deal to fight American light-heavyweight king Bernard Hopkins here in Las Vegas in April.

Calzaghe and Hopkins are reported to have agreed a 50-50 split for the huge showdown, which would be Calzaghe's American debut.

"All the people who booed the American national anthem tonight," Hopkins said, "I am going to get them back when I beat Calzaghe.

"I'm going to dress like Apollo Creed in the Stars and Stripes. Even little old ladies with the canes are going to put their teeth back in and support this good old American boy for that fight.

"The British are coming again but they are going to leave with their ass kicked."
