On this week's edition of SecondsOut Radio, host Eddie Goldman previews the IBF heavyweight title fight between champion Wladimir Klitschko (46-3, 41 KOs) and challenger Calvin Brock (29-0, 22 KOs). This fight will take place November 11 at Madison Square Garden in New York. We spoke with both Klitschko and Brock at a recent prefight news conference at the Garden.
Besides this fight, Wladimir also discussed the recent trip he and his brother Vitali, the now-retired former WBC and WBO heavyweight champion, made to Namibia in southern Africa as ambassadors of UNESCO and the project Education for Children in Need. A portion of the tickets sales from the November 11 card will go to this worthy cause.
We also spoke with the veteran trainer Amílcar Brusa, who trained the legendary middleweight champion Carlos Monzon. Brusa is currently a trainer for the WBC welterweight champion, Carlos Baldomir (43-9-6, 13 KOs), who fights top pound-for-pound fighter Floyd Mayweather Jr. (36-0, 24 KOs) November 4 in Las Vegas, Nevada. We talked with Señor Brusa on a media teleconference call.
