After Collins retired, a fight against British boxing legend Chris Eubank was quickly set up for the vacant WBO title on 11th October 1997, in Sheffield. Calzaghe emerged victorious over the two-time WBO champion, shockingly knocking the granite chinned Eubank down in the opening seconds and claiming a unanimous points win. The judges scored the contest 118–110, 118–109, and 116–111 in favour of Calzaghe.
Eubank said of Calzaghe in a 2006 interview that: ''Joe is the proper article, a true warrior. Calzaghe conceded that Eubank, even in his comeback, gave him the toughest fight of his life.
