The radiology report is in and it appears that heavyweight contender Vyacheslav “Czar” Glazkov suffered a more severe knee injury than originally believed in his bout with Charles Martin on Saturday night.

Dr. Steven Stoller, a, New Jersey Orthopedic Surgeon and who specializes in sports medicine, watched the Glazkov fight live last Saturday night. The doctor said that in the third round, while avoiding a punch, Glazkov’s right knee “pivot shifted,” which in layman’s terms is a partial dislocation of the knee (and is indicative of an ACL injury), when he went down the first time, which the referee ruled a slip. Glazkov continued fighting until presumably injuring his knee further when the bout was called off with 30 seconds remaining in the third round.

Steve Cunningham was last seen in a bout with Natu Visinia who was undefeated before being stopped by Cunningham. Cunnigham was down in that fight but came back to retire Visinia at the end of the seventh. Before that he was in with another undefeated fighter in dangerous puncher Amir Mansour. Cunningham was also down two times in that fight and it had the feeling that Mansour was on his way to winning that one. However later on Steve Cunningham would drop mansour and walk away with the decision.
