His resume is as good as many considered top10 in their respective divisions. His opposition was typically also avoided so he doesn't get due credit for beating them.

He was somewhat avoided by the Fab 5 - Hagler, LEonard, Benitez, Hearns, Duran

He was underrated in his own time but still underrated today
Hagler NEVER avoided him.That's nonsense.McCallum fought at middle for the 1st time in 88,a year after Hagler retired.He was never on Hagler's radar.
