Undercard announced for Mohegan Sun – NBCSN Sug 9 “Three to see”

UNCASVILLE, CT – Prior to the bulging tripleheader scheduled for a national television audience on the next edition of the Fight Night boxing series on NBC Sports Network, an equally full slate of undercard bouts are set to deliver knockout thrills to the live ringside audience at the Mohegan Sun Casino on Saturday night, August 3rd.

The night will end with the trio of 10-round TV fights that include middleweight Curtis “Showtime” Stevens, 24-3, 17 KOs, against Saul Roman, 37-9, 31 KOs, Tomasz Adamek, 48-2, 29 KOs, and Dominick Guinn, 34-9-1, 23 KOs, in a heavyweight affair, and a cruiserweight clash between “Fast” Eddie Chambers, 36-3, 18 KOs, and Thabiso Mchunu, 12-1, 9 KOs*. However, the preliminary schedule the begins the evening, looks just as good.

Vyacheslav “Czar” Glazkov, 14-1, 10 KOs, returns from his 10-round draw against Malik Scott, then 35-0, 12 KOs, to face Byron Polley, 25-15-1, 11 KOs, in a heavyweight 8-rounder that tops the undercard. Glazkov, of Ukraine, is one of the rising young stars of the division, and must topple his opponent from Michigan to restart his winning streak and regain the momentum he was building before the draw.

Philadelphia lightweight Karl “Dynamite” Dargan, 13-0, 7 KOs, looks to extend his undefeated run in a 6-round bout against Staten Island’s Michael Brooks. However, Brooks, an undefeated southpaw, 10-0, 2 KOs, and will fight hard to keep his own streak intact.

Undefeated Tony Harrison, of Detroit, 13-0, 10 KOs, takes on Camden, NJ’s Alex Sanchez, 2-2, 2 KOs, in a junior middleweight 6-rounder. Harrison, an Emanuel Steward protege, not only has more experience that his opponent, he has boxing in his bloodline. Tony’s grandfather was Henry Hank, one of the best contenders of the 1950s and 1960s. However, Sanchez is a tough fighter who has scored knockouts in each of his two victories, and will definitely come to fight. As they say, someone’s O must go.

Fighting for the fifth time this year and the third time at Mohegan Sun, New Haven welterweight Jimmy Williams, 4-0, 2 KOs, faces his toughest test to date when he battles Philadelphia’s Greg Jackson, 3-0, 1 KO, in a four-round bout. The always-busy Williams is coming off July 5th unanimous-decision win over Saul Almeida, 0-3. In his last appearance at Mohegan, Williams stopped Marques Jackson, 2-10, at the end of the third round of their scheduled four-round bout.

Looking to rebound from a knockout loss to Jason Sosa, 9-1-3, in January, Hartford’s Joseph “Chip” Perez, 10-2, 3 KOs, returns to Mohegan to face Ashbury Park, N.J., super featherweight Chris Green, 4-3-1, 1 KO, in a six-round bout. Green, a 5-foot-7 southpaw, looks to revive his career in his first fight since April of 2011, when he lost a six-round decision to Osnel Charles, 9-6.

New Haven welterweight Edwin Soto, 9-0-2, 4 KOs, ends a 14-month layoff in a another six-round bout. Soto last fought in June of 2012, knocking out previously-unbeaten Kevin Womack Jr. in the fourth round of their scheduled eight-round bout.
