A must see fight: King vs Czar – 2/23 NBC Sports Network

February 19, 2013 – No one is exactly sure what will happen when undefeated heavyweight prospects Malik “King” Scott and Vyacheslav “Czar” Glazkov clash in the 10-round main event at The Paramount Theatre in Huntington, NY. Both fighters will bring their spotless records and polar opposite styles into the ring with them, but until they actually start trading punches, all we can do is speculate on the outcome. However one thing is certain, after 10 rounds (or less), our answers will come on the next edition of Fight Night on NBC Sports Network, on Saturday, February 23rd, telecast begins at 10:30pm ET.

Malik Scott, 35-0, 12 KOs, is an enigma. Even after 12 years as a pro and nothing but victories, no one seems to know exactly how good he really is. Scott is fast and rangy and likes to move around the ring keeping opponents at the end of his jab. He’s danced circles around almost everyone he’s faced, but has he really been tested yet?

Czar Glazkov, 14-0, 10 KOs, is a hard-punching, forward-moving, destroyer who’s stopped four of his last five opponents. In his last and most impressive KO just two months ago, Czar displayed a vicious body attack that forced highly touted Tor Hamer to quit on his stool after four rounds. The bout was televised nationally and introduced Czar to boxing fans across the USA. He appeared to have the goods, but for most watching , it was their first time seeing him. So can Czar impress fans again or was Hamer tailor-made for him? Continue reading

Glazkov vs. Scott on February 23rd in Huntington, NY

547TOTOWA, NJ (February 12, 2013) – Casual boxing fans might look at the heavyweight division today and think that to be a champion a boxer must be pushing seven feet tall. However hardcore enthusiasts understand that size isn’t the only quality that matters in boxing’s biggest division. In fact, many fight followers will tell you that the average-sized big men are the real killers among heavyweights.

There’s an old adage of the sport that states, “The bigger they are, the harder they fall”. Until recently, this saying certainly was the case. Throughout the history of boxing, some of the heavyweights with the biggest reputations were not in the same league, height-wise, as the current crop of boxing behemoths.

Ring kings like Joe Louis, Sonny Liston and Larry Holmes all barely broke the six-foot mark, while Mike Tyson, Rocky Marciano, and Joe Frazier were less than six feet tall. Evander Holyfield, always considered relatively small, ruled the heavyweight roost after moving up from the cruiserweight division. Holyfield not only gathered titles and monster paydays during the 1990s, he saved a slumping heavyweight division at a time when giants like George Foreman, Riddick Bowe and Buster Douglas roamed the earth.
