Oliver McCall Returns to the Ring

atomicbull.gifHOLLYWOOD, FL, October 18 – The training is done, the talking is over. Now all former world heavyweight champion Oliver “The Atomic Bull” McCall wants to do is knock out Juan Carlos Gomez in their highly-anticipated rematch tomorrow night.
“Just ring the bell, man, just ring the bell,” said McCall, who is looking to extend his unbeaten streak to 12 at the expense of Gomez, a former world cruiserweight champion who battled “The Atomic Bull” to a ten round no contest in 2005. “Me and Gomez have unfinished business, and I’m gonna finish it once and for all on October 19th.”

McCall-Gomez, a bout which will be waged for the WBC International Heavyweight Championship at the Estrel Convention Center in Berlin, Germany, will air live on SecondsOut TV beginning at 4pm eastern. The fight will be broadcast LIVE around the world on SecondsOut including North America, UK and Germany. This event will NOT be available to buy online in Canada.
McCall (51-8, 36 KOs) is best remembered for winning the WBC Heavyweight title in 1994 by stopping future Hall of Famer Lennox Lewis in two rounds. He successfully defended his crown by defeating heavyweight legend Larry Holmes before losing it to Frank Bruno in 1995. Since then, McCall has been on a tear, going 25-2 with 2 no contests, including wins over WBC heavyweight champ Oleg Maskaev (KO1), Henry Akinwande (KO10), and Sinan Samil Sam (W12).
