Training Camp Notes: Glazkov With Family Safe and Sound and a Healed Hand, Glazkov Focused on Wilson

Ahead of his bout on the undercard of Hopkins-Kovalev on Nov. 8, Vyacheslav “Czar” Glazkov and his team reflected on his last outing. On Aug. 9,Glazkov defeated Derric Rossy via majority decision, but the fight was much closer than anyone predicted. At the moment Glazkov walked into the ring to face Rossy, he had not heard from his parents in war-torn Ukraine in over two weeks. Physically, his hand had been bothering him since his Mar. 15 battle with veteran Tomasz Adamek. 

After the fight, Czar did not want to make excuses but said, “My hand was bothering me. It wasn’t broken, but it did not recover as well as I had hoped. It is not an excuse but it was still bothering me from my fight with Adamek.”

Glazkov Gets Past Upset Minded Rossy

When the Heavyweight fight between Vyacheslav “Czar” Glazkov (18-0-1, 11 KOs) and Derric “El León” Rossy (29-9, 14 KOs) was signed, most boxing enthusiasts felt that Glazkov would be too much to handle for Rossy.  But as it is often the case in boxing, nothing goes according to plan, sort of.  Yes, Glazkov managed to pull out a majority decision victory over Rossy, and although one of the judges inexplicably had him winning 98-92, the other two judges’ scores reflected what had actually transpired in the 10 round bout (one judge scored it 95-95, and the other 96-94).   What was supposed to be a one sided fight between a young cub and an older lion, turned into a back and forth heated, competitive bout.

According to compubox statistics, Rossy had the edge in volume punching, but he was not as accurate as Glazkov, who threw fewer punches but made them count.  Rossy came in great shape and was motivated to pull the upset, but “Czar” turned up the heat in the later rounds and was able to close to gap to pull a disputed MD.  After the fight a relieved Glazkov commented on his performance.

Glazkov Defeats Rossy in Heart-Stopping Battle at Sands

The main event featured a brutal ten-round heavyweight battle between Vyacheslav “Czar” Glazkov (18-0-1, 11 KOs*) from Lugansk, Ukraine against Derric “El León” Rossy (29-9, 14 KOs) of Medford, NY. The first round started slow with both fighters trying to feel each other out. Both guys ended the second trading very good shots, keeping the fight close. Rossy took the third round with ease. The next four rounds were close, with both fighters trading big shots. Rossy looked tired at the start of the eighth but continued to hang in there with Glazkov. 

Glazkov: John David Jackson is Pushing the Limits

2014 has brought many changes for Vyacheslav “Czar” Glazkov (17-0-1, 11 KOs).  He defeated veteran Tomasz Adamek to claim the NABF North American Heavyweight Title and secure the #2 position in the IBF. After, he immigrated to the United States from war-torn Ukraine with his wife and daughter and moved to sunny Fort Lauderdale, FL.  In Florida, he started training with world-renowned trainer John David Jackson. Jackson also trains fellow Main Events’ stable mate Sergey “Krusher” Kovalev. This Saturday boxing fans will finally get to find out how all of these changes have affected Glazkov’s game as he steps into the ring with Derric “El León” Rossy (29-8-0, 14 KOs) at Sands Resort Casino and live on NBCSN Fight Night.

Glazkov, 29, is an Olympic Bronze medalist but, according to Jackson’s assistant trainer, Derik Santos, before training with Jackson, Glazkov’s game was very one-dimensional, “One of the things we saw from a lot of his past fights is he throws a lot of good ones.  His jab is good but everything was in ones.”  Jackson decided he wanted Glazkov to add more combinations.  Santos added, “He is very fast.  He’s agile.  He rolls well.  So we decided to work with combinations.  That’s how you’re going to beat people.  You are going to out-box them.  You are going to beat them.  You are going to outsmart them.  You gotta stick that good jab out there.”

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.”
