Calvin Brock: 'After I am done with Klitschko, Sergei Liakhovich will go down too'
18.09.06 - Mike Casile from “The Philadelphia Boxing Report”-ESPN RADIO 920 Philadelphia: On Saturday September 16th, The Philadelphia Boxing Report, on ESPN radio 920AM Philadelphia, interviewed both Calvin Brock, and Wladimir Klitschko. When I implied to Klitschko, that his “beard” may be suspect, he replied simply, “is there anyone in your studio over 220lbs?”. My co-host Dean replied, “yes, I am over 220lbs.” Then Klitschko said, “punch Mike Casile in the jaw, and let us see how fast he gets up.” That brought a gallery of laughs. Klitschko was engaging, and had a pretty good sense of humor, but when it came to Brock, he was all business.

When I asked Brock about published reports, that the WBO champion, Sergei Liakhovich had knocked him out in a sparring session a few years ago, Brock got angry, and had a personal message for the “White Wolf”: “I am tired of that same old story, he did not knock me out. He is trying to somehow imply that he deserves this fight with Klitschko more than I do. I am undefeated. He lost to Maurice Harris who has something like 14 losses. I respect him as a fighter, but he should just shut up, because when I am done with Klitschko, I am coming for him!”
This brought applaud from the studio, as well as a chuckle from our in studio guest, two time heavweight champion, "Terrible" Tim Witherspoon. Brock further elaborated, “I will unify the titles, and quiet all the doubters. Everybody can talk, very few can back it up”.
When asked if he had anything to say to Klitschko, the man he is facing in November, Brock replied “ I would say thank you for the opportunity”. Then I asked, is that it? I mean, I thought you were going to say, I am going to beat his ass or something along those lines, then Brock replied, “I am going to do that too”.
Maybe he does have a sense of humor.
