(JUNE 25) Last night at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, WBC #5, WBA #4, IBF #3 heavyweight Calvin Brock (29-0, 22 KOs) kept his unbeaten record with a twelve round unanimous decision over previously unbeaten Timur Ibragimov (21-1-1, 13 KOs). Brock was unable to do much because Ibragimov seemed to have only 2 things, one was back peddling and the other was holding. Brock landed some good right hands in round five, and more rights in the sixth staggering Ibragimov. After that point, Ibragimov's punch output went way down and Brock went on to win a unanimous decision by the scores of 117-111, 119-109, 115-113.
