Just watched the McCallum fight again it just oozes class from both fighters and i think on another night Curry might of won, he was handling Mike, a future ATG who was at his peak great until he shipped that left hook. Mike though even though he took some great shots just kept coming.
I think that one deserved a rematch, and it could have happened at MW I suppose. But don't think Curry ever was the same and Mike wanted the big names like Leonard, Hagler, Hearns etc.

Talking about Curry fighting Hagler which at the time looked a great matchup makes you wonder how McCallum might of done against Hagler circa 85-87.
Hagler started losing a step by then, and I think that would be enough for Mike to edge it. I think he was a better fighter than Leonard by 1987.
