McCall KOs Hopoate!

In his first fight in 19 months, former WBC heavyweight champion Oliver “The Atomic Bull” McCall (52-9, 37 KOs) scored a second round KO over Australian champion John Hopoate (11-3, 11 KOs) on Friday night at the Orleans Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. The 44-year-old McCall dropped Hopoate twice in round two prompting referee Joe Cortez to wave it off. It was a family affair as McCall’s 21-year-old son Elijah McCall knocked out Chad Davis on round one of an earlier heavyweight fight.
