Adamek-Glazkov – Tickets Sold Out!

With tickets sold out for the much-anticipated heavyweight battle between Tomasz “Goral” Adamek (49-2-0, 29 KOs) and Vyacheslav “Czar” Glazkov (16-0-1, 11 KOs) at Sands Casino Resort in Bethlehem, PA, the only place to catch the fight for the IBF North American Heavyweight Title and IBF #2 Eliminator is on NBCSN Fight Night at 9:00 PM ET/6:00 PM PT on March 15th.  The fight, billed “The Crossroads”, is a must-win for both fighters, with each having something to prove. 

Adamek, a top five heavyweight, is headed towards the twilight of a stellar career.  He was a world champion as a light heavyweight and a cruiserweight but the title of world heavyweight champion has eluded him.  The 37 year old has lost only twice in over fifty career fights; one of them at the hands of Vitali Klitschko in his first shot at the heavyweight crown, a tenth round TKO for the WBC World Heavyweight Championship.  The winner of his fight with Glazkov will hold the IBF North American Heavyweight Title and will be rated #2 in the IBF heavyweight ratings.  Adamek hopes to earn another chance at the world title by handing the young prospect his first defeat.  Tomasz knows what’s at stake with this fight, “I want to win this fight and be #2.  I want to be #1 and fight Wladimir Klitschko.  I lose to his brother and this would be my chance for a rematch.  I want to show that two years ago with his brother was my mistake.  I want to be mandatory.” 

Glazkov, 29, needs to prove he belongs among the elite in the heavyweight division.  With this fight, the 2008 Olympic Bronze medalist will look to take on his first top-ranked opponent and keep his undefeated record intact.  Despite Glazkov’s excellent amateur record, he knows Adamek has experience on his side and that age is sometimes just a number when he said, “In the heavyweight division anything under 40 is still considered to be of fighting age.  That is why I am not going to discount his age or his experience.” He promises to be ready on March 15th, “I have prepared myself the most for this fight and we will see what happens after that.”

The crossroads showdown was originally scheduled for the special afternoon edition of Fight Night on NBC on November 16, 2013.  When Adamek fell ill with the flu just days before the fight, Garrett “The Ultimate Warrior” Wilson stepped in at the last minute and put on a game performance against Glazkov, entertaining close to one million viewers.  Czar defeated Wilson in ten rounds via unanimous decision.  Now the showdown between Glazkov and Adamek is finally going to take place on March 15th and NBCSN Fight Night is the only place to catch it live.  

“We are excited to showcase a title bout featuring top-tier competitors that our Fight Night audience has become familiar with over the past few years,” said Gary Quinn, vice president of programming & planning for NBC and NBCSN. 

Kathy Duva, the promoter of both fighters and CEO of Main Events, said, “When Adamek fell ill in November, we were all devastated.  Everyone was excited for the fight.  It’s wonderful that we’ve been able to reschedule it and give Fight Night fans the fight they really want to see.”
