Jameel McCline is a professional heavyweight boxer notable for his size, 6 ft 6 in and weight of around 120 kg. He was born in Harlem on 20 May 1970. He is currently ranked at number 9 in the WBC heavyweight ratings.
McCline is trained by Mathew Drayton. He spent five years in prison for gun running prior to become a professional fighter. He has taken part in four world Heavyweight title clashes.
McCline has captured several wins against notable fighters, but has been unable to replicate these performances in title fight situations. In addition to the aforementioned title fight losses, he has lost to Gary Bell, and was upset by the underdog Zuri Lawrence.
McCline challenged WBA Heavyweight Champion Nikolai, in what was the first ever heavyweight title fight on Swiss soil. The fight was also reportedly the ?biggest? championship fight in history.

Even while allegedly using steroids, McCline has not been able to defeat any title-contenders, and with his advancing age, his career appears in jeopardy.
With his collegiate education and natty attire, one would never know McCline is a professional boxer by looking at him or speaking with him.
One of the furthest things from McCline?s mind was boxing when he was growing up. A three-sport star at Comsewogue High School in Port Jefferson, his primary interest was basketball, and as a board-crashing power forward he won the opportunity to play at Oneonta State University.
An obvious natural athlete, McCline took to boxing rather quickly, going into sparring sessions with big-name professionals from the start.
Jameel considered it to be an essential ingredient to his career advancement. He participated in his first professional boxing match. Nobody knew what lay ahead when his professional record stood at 2-2-1.
His first big splash in the heavyweight pond came on July 21, 2001, when he faced Michael Grant, an undefeated comer the year before whom Lennox Lewis stopped. Trying to get back on the winning track, Grant was knocked down by McCline?s first punch.

The Ukrainian giant proved too much for McCline on this night. After being knocked down in the 10th round, McCline?s corner refused to answer the bell.
McCline acknowledged that he was ?over-trained? for that bout, but he learned a great deal from fighting for his first world heavyweight title. Jameel fought top prospect Cedric Boswell in Las Vegas. McCline proved he could come back from behind in a fight.
Trailing on all three judges? scorecards going into the final round, Jameel scored a spectacular 10th-round knockout over the previously undefeated challenger. Don King invited McCline to be a part of his heavyweight Rendezvous with Destiny.
