“Today’s Heavyweight division makes me sick, and I’m the one who is going to bring the luster back to what used to be the most prestigious title in sports,” said McCall. “No one has the tools I do in the ring, and now I’ve got the muscle outside the ring as well to get me back to the Championship.”
“I would like to thank the WBC and my new promoters for recognizing my potential. Right now I have the peace of mind and strong self confidence. I am ready to fight any Heavyweight in the world,” says McCall.
McCall, is the proud owner of a 46-8 record that includes 33 knockouts, the WBC Heavyweight Championship, and wins over Lennox Lewis, Larry Holmes, and Oleg Maskaev. Currently riding a six fight unbeaten streak, the Chicago native has only lost once (via a disputed decision to DaVarryl Williamson) in the last nine years, a run few, if any, fighters can match.
Chris Webb states, “I am honored to be a part of Oliver’s comeback. Everyone knows that when Oliver stays focused he has the ability to beat anyone in the world.”
“Bringing Oliver McCall on board is an exciting development for us at Warriors Boxing,” said Leon Margules. “Oliver can punch, can take a punch, and he has Championship-level experience. All he needs now is the opportunity to face one of the world champions, and that’s what we’re planning as we speak.”
“I’ve always felt that Oliver McCall was one of boxing’s most underrated fighters and that we’ve never truly seen the best of him” said Chris Webb of Chris Webb Promotions. “Well, I’ve seen him in the gym over the last few weeks, and he’s not only looking better than ever, but he has a steely determination to win another world title. Heavyweights, watch out – ‘The Atomic Bull’ is coming for you.”
McCall, who scored a third round TKO win over Wallace McDaniel in his last bout on May 27, will return to the ring at a date and site to be announced shortly.
