Adamek vs. Glazkov
(Photo Credits: Rich Graessle/Main Events) Bethlehem, PA: “Czar” Glazkov did what only two out of 51 men before him managed to do – defeat veteran brawler Tomasz “Goral” Adamek. In a twelve round unanimous decision the 29 year-old Olympic Bronze Medalist from Lugansk, Ukraine (17-0-1, 11 KOs) remains undefeated as he upsets the 37 year-old veteran from Gilowice, Poland, Tomasz “Goral” Adamek (49-3-0, 29 KOs) to win the NABF North American Heavyweight Title and secure the #2 position in the IBF.
Two judges scored the bout 117-111 and one judge scored the bout 116-110. Glazkov landed an amazing 37% (212 of 580) of his shots on the veteran Adamek, who landed only 21% (161 of 761). Czar said, “I would like to thank Main Events and Kathy Duva for giving me this opportunity and taking me to this road. I also want to thank Tomasz Adamek for taking this bout and giving me this opportunity. He was risking more than I did. Tomasz was not a guy who was backing up, he was coming forward. It was a very good bout.” Continue reading
Photo: Rich Graessle/Main Events — Tomasz Adamek (49-3, 29 KO’s) ran out of luck tonight in his dream of fighting for another heavyweight world title, as the younger and stronger Vyacheslav Glazkov (17-0-1, 11 KO’s) pounded out a 12 round unanimous decision tonight in beating Adamek in front of his own fans at the Sands Casino Resort, in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, USA. Adamek took a beating in the fight and ended up with a right eye that was nearly swollen closed courtesy of the hard jabs that Glazkov was hitting him with all night.
Glazkov used his jab and power shots to beat up Adamek and build up a big deal. Adamek rallied in the last four rounds, but he was too far behind for him to make up the difference. The judges scored the fight 117-110, 117-111, 116-112.
Adamek did a lot of good things in the fight like using constant movement to keep from getting hit. However, Glazkov did a great job of cutting off the ring and nailing Adamek with big right hand shots to the head. He had Adamek hurt on more than one occasion in rounds 7-9. Continue reading
