Calvin Brock looks to bring another Heavyweight title back to the United States when he takes on Wladimir Klitschko (46-3, 41 KO’s) for the IBF and IBO Heavyweight Titles.

Wladimir Klitschko is considered the best heavyweight fighter in the scarce heavyweight division. But there are still those who doubt him, and his heart, and most importantly his chin. But with Emanuel Steward in his corner, Klitschko has turned his career around and his built a string of solid defenses, earning a UD victory over Sam Peter and dominating Chris Byrd for seven rounds, eventually earning a TKO. Now Klitschko has his eyes set on unifying the heavyweight division one fighter at a time. Klitschko has a 4 inch height advantage over Brock and is in much better physical shape. A victory could set up a big time heavyweight fight with 7 fight champion Nikolay Valuev sometime next year.

Calvin Brock stands as America’s biggest challenger to Klitschko. With 22 KO’s, Brock has the ability to end the fight early, but has also recently proven that he has the stamina to go 12 rounds. With Klitschko as Brock’s biggest challenger, and only 31, a win could set Brock up for a run at unifying the heavyweight division.

Make sure to tune in tonight live, 10 PM ET/7 PM PT, from New York as Brock and Klitschko slug it out for Heavyweight Supremacy.

Touchgloves Prediction:

Farz B. – I think Klitschko is the much better fighter. Chances are this fight will go 12 rounds. Both men will box it out, not fight it out. BUT, I’m looking for an upset: Brock TKO 9!
