Can anyone forget the night he broke down mentally against Lennox Lewis between rounds having a melt down? The man is 54 years old! Razor Ruddock was 52 in 2015 when he got knocked out by an 8-2 opponent.
Ever since “Big” George Foreman won the world title at the age of 45 too many fighters have gone on too many years beyond their fighting ability. “Big Daddy” Riddick Bowe was 50 in his last fight.
Granted McCall, 59-14 (38), is fighting Grover Young with a record of 13-27-3, who in March took so many blows to his head he was suspended for 90 days before losing another match in June. He’s been 1-12-2 in his last 15 fights.
McCall fought in December of 2018 in Corpus Christi where he resides and in May of 2019 in Mexico. How the New Mexico Commission is allowing him to fight on September 28th one has to wonder. It has to be another black eye for boxing!
