Just like the title says. According to Boxrec.com, The "Steel Hammer" is scheduled to fight "The Boxing Banker" on Nov 11, 2006 for the IBF Heavyweight Championship. Should be a great test for Calvin Brock.

To be honest I don't like upsets for the most part. So I'm pulling or Klitchko.:cool:

I dont know that I would consider a Brock win a real upset. Brock is a seasoned up and coming prospect and will be a very tough fight for Klitschko. He has a great jab, good power, and is a very smart fighter. He's undefeated at 29-0 with 22KO's and is world ranked #8 . He's got wins against Jameel McCline, David Bostice, Zuri Lawrence, and most recently Timor Ibragimov.

Yeah but size and power in the end can wear you down. It doesn't help if you eat a jab.:cool:

I don't really like either of them but Klitchko is the champ right now and I'd like to think there is a half decent heavyweight out there that can triumph over true challengers.:cool:

I would consider it abit of an upset if Brock beats him. I dont think its outa the question though. Wladimir is the best fighter Brock has faced & will be tough challenge for him.

Brock should have the advantage in stamina wich may help if he can get later into the fight. I have been waiting for Brock to get a shot & I hope he makes the most of it.

Yeah but Wlad is bigger and stronger if he moves around in the begining and jabs he should win the opening rounds, about mid point he should start using his big right hand since brock is a southpaw he should be easier to hit with it.:cool:

Wlad obviously has a questionable chin which is why he should move around the ring jabing and, and later using his big right hand.:cool:

Brock should work on counter punching Wlad's right hand and jab. Brock should side step and aim at Wlads solarplex, when he keels over B:cool: rock should throw a big left uppercut and put everything behind it. That will drop Wlad and possibly KO him.
