The outcome, needless to say, is always the same every time Wayne McCullough looks at the tape. Four weeks after his points loss to world featherweight titlist Naseem Hamed in Atlantic City on Halloween night, the bitterness lingers for the Belfastman.
"It’s just like the twilight zone," McCullouogh said from his Las Vegas home last week. "I’ve reviewed the tape numerous times and I don’t see his punches."
"I knew that I’d done enough to win, but as I told [promoter] Matt Tinley before they announced the decision, they weren’t going to give it to me because he’s the big draw.
"If I’d beaten him from pillar to post, they’d have made it close for him. I knew that I had to knock him out. That’s the only way he can lose."
