I can honestly say I can't recall a time when a fighter kept someone of McCallum's level at the exact distance he wanted him for a full 12 rounds. McCallum could do NOTHING and in many rounds he landed in the single digits.

Round by Round:
Kalambay McCallum
10 9
10 9
9 10 (close but I'll give him this one)
10 9

119-109

This was a masterclass against a HOF level opponent. The commentary seemed to state that McCallum was probably a bit old, past prime and rusty. Considering his career and level of performance after this fight, I say he just got dominated by the most underrated middleweight champ of the last 40 years
Pretty much agree with all of this.

As for Sumbu, if he'd beaten Nunn he might not have been so underrated
