Czar Glazkov and Tomasz Adamek
In a classic heavyweight match up, Tomasz "Goral" Adamek, 49-2, 29 KO's, will take on Vyacheslav "Czar" Glazkov, 15-0-1, 11 KO's, on Saturday, November 16th at Turning Stone Resort Casino in Verona, NY. Doors will open at 12 PM ET, First Fight at 1PM ET.
The fight will be the main event of the afternoon presentation of NBC Fight Night. The two hour broadcast will begin at 3PM ET.
The veteran Adamek will put his IBF North American Heavyweight belt on the line in this 12-round battle, against the up and coming Ukrainian. The IBF has designated this bout as a heavyweight voluntary eliminator fight for the #2 position.
This is a "must-win" fight for both fighters. Their come forward styles promise to deliver an exciting, action-packed night for boxing fans. Glazkov worked in Adamek's training camp to help the Polish favorite prepare for his last fight against Dominick Guinn. Obviously each fighter has knowledge of the other's style and technique, as well as confidence that they can beat the other guy.
"This fight cannot help but be a non-stop action brawl," said promoter Kathy Duva of Main Events. "A classic 'cross roads' fight, it is exactly the kind of signature launching pad match-up that we like to present on NBC. The winner of Adamek-Glazkov will put himself in a position for much bigger things in 2014."
Glazkov is thrilled with the opportunity, "I have already been training hard. I had a very good camp boxing with Klitschko, as I helped him prepare for his fight with Povetkin. Now I will come to the United States to continue my training." He added, "Adamek is a very good fighter with a big name. He is big and strong and comes forward during the fight, this is good for me. I think I can win this fight. It will help put my name on the list of the best heavyweight fighters."
Adamek stated,"I know Glazkov is young and hungry to win, but I will be ready for him. I know our styles will make a good fight for all the fans." He added "I'm excited to be fighting at Turning Stone for the first time. I've spent time with friends and family in that area so I know there will be a big Polish crowd to cheer me on."
