Sauerland: McCall Saw Tape of Kubrat Pulev and Withdrew

Sauerland Event, who a few days ago announced that Elijah McCall (12-3, 11 KOs), the son of former WBC heavyweight champion Oliver McCall (57-13, 37 KOs), was going to face top ranked heavyweight Kubrat Pulev (19-0, 10 KOs) on April 5th in Rostock, says McCall has now withdrawn from the match after initially agreeing. A late replacement is being pursued for the show, which is headlined by a light heavyweight title fight between Braehmer and Maccarinelli.

Sauerland Event wrote on their social network pages - "after agreeing 2 fight & docs being received. McCall watched tape of Pulev and pulled out of undercard bout. Replacement announced shortly."

Sauerland only wanted to pay 10k for McCall. No wonder he didn't take the fight.

Sauerland always pays peanuts and that's why McCall jr. withdrew.
