Default Re: School me on Mike McCallum

Fantastic technician and ring general combined with a very good chin, workrate and extremely strong will. What he lacked was speed, power and getting the right fights.

Duran and Hearns blatantly ducked him. Can't really blame Hagler, though, since Mike had done nothing at MW and wasn't nearly as strong a draw as Duran, Leonard and Hearns.

If he was fighting in front of home crowds as some fighters, his only loss would have been to Kalambay before Toney III imo. That's a clue to how good his record was in reality.
