McCallum was still fighting at the elite level at 40, I still think he was the best fighter Roy fought at lhw as well. His last fight was a competitive fight with Toney at CW, but I guess Hopkins beats him in longevity because he is still fighting at 45 years of age. Very skilled and underrated fighter his first fight with Toney was amazing.

once again, from what I've seen, it's a possibility. Hopkins seems like the type of guy who would do a bit more to win though. IMO. In his prime of course.

you see themapples i think the opposite i see mccallum being as crafty as hopkins and digging the body and making hopkins fight out of his comfort zone and pushing the fight and out working hopkins to sneak a close decision .but who knows it would of been a good fight though
