Default Can Mccall become WBC champ?

I always liked Mccall, he can take a good punch and give one as well. I kinda feel sorry for him in way, because guys that are less deserving always seem to get the chance before him. He trains hard and has always did the best he can to live down the incident that happend to him 97 against Lewis, is it finally Mccalls time to regain the belt thats been alluding him all these years. Do you see Mccall beating Gomez, and if wins will he finally get his chance at the belt either against Peter or Maskaev?

I really hope he gets the chance that he deserves, if he beats Gomez and doesnt get a title shot, that would be a tragedy.

McCline gassed so quickly, and still made a close fight with Peter, I feel like McCall would outbox and outwork peter right now... I mean geez

In today's HW division, anything's possible. I wouldn't bet on it though. Virtually any of the top level guys would beat him.

His chin would probably see him go the distance though. And if he cracks one of em' on the chin??? Could be sleepytime.

no, but he has a better chance of becoming champ than Holyfield does.

If he Mccall beats Gomez, I think he stands a good chance against either Peter or Maskaev.

I'd like to see how Maskaev would do against Mccall now. Mccall would come in very confident because of that knockout win years ago.

In today's lethargic heavyweight division, unfortunately yes.

A 42 year old unpredictable former crackhead/drug addict, who has soundly beaten by Frank Bruno what seems like a 100 years ago, the fact that this is even a topic just shows that the Heavyweight division is seriously lacking in talent..

BTW- My money would be on Peter to whip Mccall..

I believe he can if he sticks to the same steady pressure and cautious strategy utilized against Samil Sam in Ankara but it would be very, very even between him and Peter at that game and the Nigerian's strength and youth would probably negate Oliver's chances of pulling it.

If he beats Gomez?

What makes you guys think he can beat Gomez?

Gomez already schooled him.

Ok McCall has the greatest chin of all-time, but he’s just a slugger.

When has McCall ever out boxed a ‘boxer’ in his entire career?

Juan Carlos Gomez will be the next WBC heavyweight champion, and a 2-weight champ… he’s going to school the greatest chin of all-time (again), then he’s going to do the same to Peter… by then the aging Oleg would have retired from injuries.
