Pianeta decisions 47-year-old McCall; Kentikian loses to McMorrow

By Jim Dower: Heavyweight contender Francesco Pianeta (26-0-1, 14 KO’s) kept his unbeaten record intact with a solid clinch-filled 10 round unanimous decision over 47-year-old former WBC heavyweight champion Oliver McCall (56-12, 37 KO’s) at the Brandenburg Halle in Frankfurt, Germany. The final judges’ scores were 98-92, 97-93 and 99-91.

McCall landed some nice shots. However, with Pianeta attaching himself to McCall with constant clinching there wasn’t much McCall could do other than land a few shots between each clinch. It was pretty ugly to watch and it’s hard to believe Pianeta is ranked in the top 15 in the heavyweight division.
