Wilson, 32, is from the fighting city of Philadelphia, PA. He made his Fight Night debut on a special afternoon edition of NBC Fight Night on November 16, 2013 at Turning Stone Resort & Casino in Verona, NY against Vyacheslav “Czar” Glazkov. Wilson was a last minute replacement for Tomasz “Goral” Adamek who fell ill days before the fight. Wilson took the fight on less than 48 hours’ notice and agreed to fight at heavyweight despite being a cruiserweight. He ultimately lost to Glazkov via a ten-round unanimous decision but he gained the respect of the boxing community for stepping up at the last minute and taking such a big fight on national broadcast television.
