McCallum gets payback.

what_is_the_default_password's picture

A brilliant, technical showdown fought to razor-close margins. McCallum avenged a loss; Kalambay got the short end of the stick and never won a world title again. McCallum would move on to fight Toney for his IBF title, which was another brilliant fight.

I honestly think Kalambay deserves more credit for his slickness and technical skills, which was on par with McCallum's but generally people do not remember or talk about Kalambay as much as McCallum.
