Jameel McCline eyes weak division and wants a shot

Slowly, surely, steadily, heavyweight Jameel McCline is climbing the rankings of the major sanctioning bodies (#10 WBO and top-15 in the WBC/IBF) and is eager to take the next step along the comeback trail by taking on one of the division’s champions or, failing that, one of the top-rated contenders.
