Calzaghe Admits Taking Cocaine

British boxing hero JOE CALZAGHE has confessed to taking drugs - the sports star uses cocaine on an "occasional" basis.
The former light heavyweight boxing champ has apologised to his family and fans over the revelations, after British newspaper the News of the World carried out an investigation into the star's drug use.
A team of undercover reporters spoke candidly with Calzaghe, who admitted taking drugs and even tried to place an order for cocaine in front of them.
Speaking to one of the reporters, Calzaghe reportedly said, "Have you got any stuff on you now? I know the score, I done bits and pieces myself. Don't tell my dad for f**k's sake! He's no idea. Of course, I do a bit, but the thing is most of it is f**king s**t in Wales. In London it's not too bad."
After the publication approached Calzaghe, he confessed to his recreational drug use, saying in a statement, "I take cocaine. I very much regret my occasional use of cocaine in what have sometimes been long days since my retirement from the ring. I am fully aware of the bad example it sets to other people and particularly to youngsters and I apologise to my family, friends and fans.
"It is not a major problem in my life but it is something which I am actively addressing."
