Vyacheslav Glazkov beats Garrett Wilson

801Vyacheslav Glazkov (16-0, 11 KO’s) defeated the shorter replacement opponent Garrett Wilson (13-7-1, 6 KO’s) by a 10 round unanimous decision that was a little more competitive than the scores suggested on Saturday at the Turning Stone Resort & Casino, in Verona, New York, USA. Wilson, a cruiserweight that was picked out to replace heavyweight Tomasz Adamek, seemed to energize the Verona crowd with huge heart in trying to win against a much bigger fighter than him in Glazkov. The judges scored the fight 97-93, 98-92, 99-91.

The 6’3″ Glazkov looked huge in the ring against the 5’9″ Wilson, and it seemed incredibly strange to have two fighters so different from each other fighting on national television in the U.S. Wilson gave it his all, but it’s too bad that Main Events couldn’t find an actual heavyweight for Glazkov to fight instead of a short cruiserweight.

Bam on boxing: Alekseev, Rosado, More!

One Shot, or is it? Why does it feel like the end of the world when a fighter you want to see win, loses. It’s not like watching your favorite sports team where, after a loss, ‘there’s always next time’. For fighters, there almost is never ‘next time’.

Last Saturday evening, South Philadelphia cruiserweight Garrett Wilson boxed Alexander Alekseev, of Uzbekistan, in Galati, Romania, for the No. 1 spot in the IBF world ratings. Continue reading
