Training Camp Notes: Glazkov

With Family Safe and Sound and a Healed Hand, Glazkov Focused on Wilson

Ft. Lauderdale, FL: Ahead of his bout on the undercard of Hopkins-Kovalev on Nov. 8, Vyacheslav “Czar” Glazkov and his team reflected on his last outing.

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.
