Toney vs. McCallum 1 I'm sort of embarrassed to admit, but I think this is the first McCallum fight I ever watched in it's entirety. I knew he was a beast at lower weights, but see on boxrec that his punching power didn't carry up to middleweight - at least not in the same way. McCallum is 35 years old here, While Toney is 23. Pretty great fight. Looking forward to 2 and 3 Round 1 - McCallum took a close round that was pretty much a feeling out round Round 2 - Toney's round Round 3 - Another close round that I gave to McCallum. Early on I thought his jabbing was beautiful. Toney was jabbing good too, but McCallum's was on a different level. Round 4 - Very good round that really sort of set the tone for the right of the fight. Gave it to McCallum Round 5 - Toney's round. At this point he's really starting to find a home for his right hand Round 6 - Toney's again Round 7 - McCallum's round. Near the end of the round Toney either gassed terribly or was hurt by something I didn't quite see. Toney stumbled around the ring a bit here at the end of the frame. Round 8 - Toney battled back well to nick the round Round 9 - McCallum expended a ton of energy here, it won him the round, but I think it cost him going into the final rounds of the fight. Round 10 - Toney's round Round 11 - Super even round. A right hand by Toney at the end swayed it in his direction for me, but this could have gone either way. I don't like scoring even rounds, especially so late in a fight Round 12 - Toney hit Mike with dozens of hard right hands and left hooks through this fight. This was the first time McCallum showed any ill-effects from those blows. However, After Toney hurt McCallum early, he had zero energy left to do anything about it. Still, Toney's round. I gave this to Toney 115-113. I noted 5 rounds as close, so tomorrow I could very easily have it a different score if I were to score it then. The officials saw it 116-112 Toney, 115-113 McCallum, 114-114 a draw, for a draw. All of the scores seem fine, to be honest, very hard fight to score. I know by the end of the fight I thought Toney was starting to pull away, and really feel he deserved the nod, or at least a draw. Finding 7 rounds for McCallum is a little tougher, but not insane. I scored my even rounds 3-2 in favor of McCallum, so if you give him a couple more, you can get to that score. Either way, really damn good fight!
