Francesco Pianeta Beats Oliver McCall Over Ten Rounds

By Ruslan Chikov

Brandenburg Halle, Frankfurt, Germany - Heavyweight contender Francesco Pianeta (26-0-1, 14 KOs) won a ten round unanimous decision over former WBC champion Oliver McCall (56-12, 37 KOs). The scores were 98-92, 97-93 and 99-91. McCall, 47-years-old and still very tough, took the fight on short-notice after the original opponent, Francois Botha, withdew with a training injury. Pianeta was the more accurate and busier fighter. McCall, showing his iron chin, walked through Pianeta's flush punches in several rounds and continued to come forward, but also showed moments of mental weakness when he simply allowed Pianeta to score without firing shots back.

It's sad McCall has to keep fighting. Has a better chin than Margarito IMO, up there with the all-time greatest chins, along with Hagler et al.
