Default Mike Mccallum vs Sumbu Kalambay 2

I just watched this bout and I have to be honest and say I think Mccallum lost this bout.It was a close bout but I think Kalambay edged Mccallum.Anyone else think Kalambay was on the wrong end of the decision?

I only saw the first bout which Kalambay coasted to an easy UD.
Id like to see the 2nd. though.

It could have gone either way, much like the Toney fights i suppose.

The close scores and SD were a fair enough reflection on the fight.

Like usual, the British commentators on the version i have were totally biased towards McCallum.Never seen an american version of it.

Very very close fight, could've gone either way. The first was a walkover for Kalambay. But this one...maybe Mike by a point, but i wouldn't argue the other way.

Jesus, don't start me on Ian Darke's commentary in the first Toney fight.

I have that copy too. I think Minter commentated on one of them. I wrote a letter in disgust to the next issue of Boxing Monthly.
