Mugabi the undeserving exception but he somehow got the high rating with his strong backing from Duff etc and fan friendly huge punching.McCallum had neither so what was he expecting.
Agreed.I was shocked to hear McCallum say what he did.There was absolutely nothing going on concerning a fight between Hagler and McCallum.Mike's just bitter because he never made the massive money.And if my memory serves me right,Mugabi was a mandatory.He was also perceived as a monster because he won all of his fights by ko,even though we all saw what happened after that.
