Re: Your Boxer BIO- Raw Data Off the Top!
Mike MCallum was known as the body snatcher because he annihilated the body of his opponent. Michael Watson was finding it hard to breathe after the first few rounds because of the body shots. Mike MCallum also had an incredible chin.
Mike MCallum was a Kronk fighter for a bit and wanted to face Duran but when Thomas Hearns got the fight he left them. He was light middleweight champion and enjoyed destroying a Kronk fighter Milton McCrory. He also spectacularly knocked out Donald Curry with one punch, he would never do that again in his career. He was also the first man to beat the hard punching Julian Jackson (great fight!)
Mike MCallum moved up to middleweight and lost for the first time to Sambu Kalambay and everyone left him. He beat my favourite fighter Herol Graham in a close contest. He avenged his loss to Kalambay and fought James Toney for the Hagler belt. I thought he won both fights against Toney but the first was close and he got wobbled at the end.
After that he got old but still beat an Australian to win light heavyweight title and fought James for a third time. He also lost to Roy Jones. He was a proud Jamaican and trained some fighters but is fat now.
Next fighter is Herol Graham.
Do not let success go to your head and do not let failure get to your heart.
