If my Pokemon is infected by the Pokerus and is holding the Macho Brace, to fully max out in a single stat Will I only need to defeat 64 Pokemon?
No problem [=

It depends on the EV output of the Pokemon you're beating on how many you must face to max out a single stat.

1 EV Yield;
252/(1 x 4)= 63
63 defeats
2 EV Yield;
252/(2 x 4)= 31.5
32 defeats
3 EV Yield;
252/(3 x 4)= 20.833r
21 Defeats
So you would be correct that you only need to beat a maximum of 64 pokemon to max out a single stat, although given that you do not need to gain the three excess EVs you can stop at 63.
