Default Re: School me on Mike McCallum

Best Jr. MW and a really well rounded boxer puncher. One of my favorites to watch. Great counter and body puncher. Good defense using upper body movement and excellent ring IQ. He wasn't really a 1 punch KO artist as he relied on an accumulation of punches to the body. And as others have said his footwork really wasn't the best. He has shown to have trouble with slick mover types that make him look like a plodder. His chin is also one of the best I've seen as he was able to take a punch from guys like Julian Jackson and Donald Curry.

IMO I think he would have been able to best Duran and Hearns. Leonard, if he played the part as the mover, would have troubled McCallum but I think Mike would have been able to solve him. I don't think Mike would have beaten a guy like Hagler though.
