Not Darren Clarke, who was brilliant in golf's Ryder Cup in the face of domestic tragedy; not David Walliams, the comedian who defied his public perception by swimming the English Channel; and not Monty Panesar, who span his way to become the new golden boy of English cricket.

But apart from statistics, 2006 was different for Calzaghe because this was the year he really proved himself to be the best in the world.
