UNLV's Brett Rather Wins NCAA Boxing Title

When Brett Rather was 13, he saw a picture of the NCAA heavyweight boxing belt and thought, "I want that." That dream came true this year. The UNLV sophomore fought his way to the 2010 heavyweight title, beating out the Army and the Navy along the way. The 19 year old talks about how he won in the ring, growing up in Las Vegas's boxing culture, and what he likes about Mike Tyson's game.
