High-Interest Bout
As pugilistic nicknames go, the Boxing Banker doesn't inspire as much fear as, say, Steelhammer (current IBF heavyweight titleholder Wladimir Klitschko). But the moniker has served Calvin Brock well. Brock, who is 29--0 and holds a degree in finance from UNC-Charlotte, will try to deposit a few big punches on Klitschko (46--3) at Madison Square Garden as the Ukrainian makes his first title defense. Even if Brock (left, with Zuri Lawrence) doesn't come away with the belt, his savings account will get a nice boost: He's being paid a reported $1.2 million for the fight.
