I'm going with Nunn in a close fight. McCallum usually struggled with slicksters.
Yes, decision loss for MM but split.
At 160? Nunn points win
Nunn is a bad matchup for McCallum at middleweight.
As much as I love McCallum, prime Nunn would certainly be favored in this one.
Probably Nunn. A tall rangy southpaw like him is hard to deal with.
Nunn by clear decision, for me. Puncher's chance for McCallum but he wasn't quite the same force at 160 as he'd been at 154. That's assuming we're taking both guys at their Middleweight best, of course. The McCallum who hammered Watson (his best showing at Middleweight) would have a much better chance against the uninspired Nunn who laboured against Barkley.
But if we're talking the Nunn of the Tate fight then McCallum is going to struggle.
His footwork height and reach would guide him to a decision win
Nunn of course
