Default Re: Benitez vs McCallum At 154

He went the distance with Hearns though. At 147 was stopped by Leonard, and although Hearns had hand troubles surely this proves that Benitez could still stop himself from taking a shellacking. I guess it's down to whether you think McCallum could outpoint Benitez like Hearns did or get enough punches off. I think this is a 50-50 fight, I'm more of a fan of McCallums than Benitez, but Benitezs talent was exceptional. There's a misconception that he's a Camacho-esque waste of talent but he did enough whilst he could be bothered to prove to me he's going to (at least) competitive with McCallum; in this fight, I say he wins. As I previously said I think if they have 5 fights it's be 2-2 aiece with one draw.
