Default McCLINE NOT A BETTER OPPONENT THAN GOLOTA OR McCALL

Lately, people have been mischaracterizing who Jameel McCline really is. McCline's record or skill set in no way shape or form suggest that he is a better quality fighter than either McCall or Golota. For instance, unlike McCline, Golota has NEVER lost to a bum or anyone outside of the top ten ranking, in his entire career. Let's recount Jameel's illustrious record of losing in chronological order, shall we:

Gary Bell 6-0-0,
Greg Pickrom
6-1-1,
Wladimir Klitschko
39-1-0,
Chris Byrd
37-2-1,
Calvin Brock 24-0-0,
Zuri Lawrence 19-10-4
Nikolay Valuev 45-0-0

To suggest that McCline is a better quality opponent than either Golota or McCall is an insult to the truth.

For sure, McCall is worthy a title shot, not fvcking McCline.

Golota is done, McCall is old. To me McCline is better. This guy had no amateur fights if im not mistaken and right now hes mutch better than the foul pole. Ok lets say hes not better than McCall, lets say hes just as good.

McCall is better and more worthy of a title shot than McCline, so in that regard, I agree with you that McCall would have made for a better fight and would have been the better choice. But Andrew Golota hasn't done anything in the past few years. He was destroyed by Lamon Brewster after 3 quick first round knockdowns. Brewster was a big puncher, like Peter, and Golota froze. He lost to Ruiz and drew with Byrd, but that is not the same Golota now whose last win was over Jeremy Bates.

McCall and Virchis deserved it most...McCline got it and rightfully so over Golota.

Peter is being handed a soft touch. This just kills the thrill..
With McCline being announced as the official opponent for Peter, there have been many people stating on record that he is in fact a better opponent.


Let me use "El Ray" as a representative example. This is what he and some others are saying in an earlier thread.

"Great news, this is a much better fight than what Golota and McCall fanboys were hoping for"

"Bullshit! I have no idea why McCall gets so much credit here. The guy is old and slow as **** now-a-days and he's never had great defensive skills so I don't see him being able to fend off much of what Peter throws his way. That's an easy win for Peter IMO.

While McCline is a bonafide top 10 contender (haha, that one killed me, because on his best days he is in the fringe top 15) who is quicker than Peter in almost every way and has much more refined skill. Trust me this is going to be a much better scrap than people give it credit for."

Compare his wins against Golota's and McCalls, McCalls possibly has the best record out there among heavyweights to be honest. And has won his recent fights, defeating Sinan Samil Sam, McCline's best win couldn't even compare to Sinan... so you're wrong here, McCall is obviously more worthy then McCline.

Yes, McCall is the worthiest of the three, followed by Golota and then McCline. I think people are infatuated with McCline's decent 2 rounds against Valuev and feel sorry for his bad luck.

****ing McCline sucks ass and isnt a better opponent than Golota or McCall by any stretch of the imagination


He's developed into the HW division PATSY and is no more than a gimme for guys coming off a loss.

Sad thing is Peter is about on par with both of them. He sucks as bad as McCline does with his rabbit punching which is never penalized.

McCline is my #22 contender, McCall is around #15 and Virchis is Top12. Definitely McCline is worse. But he is better than Golota, who I have unranked.

Better??

More stable mentally?? Perhaps!!

Mccline has no where near the skills that Golota has/had/ or lost over time.


I'm not defending Golota, or shitting on you, just stating the truth. McCline is next to nothing at this point.

mccall probably earned the shot out of these three, but all of them have serious flaws. mccline shouldn't be getting a title shot but like always he could beat Peter if he doesn't fight too scared.

McCline has lost all of his Big ones, but he will be a small test for Peter who did not impress me vs Toney or Vlad
