Oliver McCall: Boxing is my business but this is personal

By Przemek Garczarczyk

Former WBC heavyweight champion Oliver “Atomic Bull” McCall (56-13, 37 KOs) will fight again in Poland, and this time there will be also a family pride on stake. In May of 2013, McCall lost a very close fight to undefeated Polish heavyweight Krzysztof Zimnoch (17-0, 11 KOs), and on the same night his son Elijah McCall (12-3, 11 KOs) lost by KO against Marcin Rekowski (12-0, 10 KOs). After six months, the 48-year-old “Atomic Bull” will have chance to avenge his son’s loss, fighting Rekowski on February 1, in Opole (Poland). The former champion spoke to Fightnews.com.
