TOTOWA, NJ - Main Events announced today that undefeated heavyweights Vyacheslav "Czar" Glazkov, 14-0, 10 KOs, and Malik Scott, 35-0, 12 KOs, will meet in a 10-round battle on February 23rd at The Paramount in Huntington, NY. The clash of unbeaten big men will be the main event of another nationally televised NBC Sports Network FIGHT NIGHT show. The telecast will begin at 10:30PM ET.
Glazkov, originally of Lugansk, Ukraine but now fighting out of New Jersey, is coming off his most impressive career victory, a 4th round TKO of the touted Tor Hamer. Czar punished Hamer to such an extent that the New Yorker refused to answer the bell for round five. It was a timely win for Glazkov, in just his second US appearance, as the bout was part of a special FIGHT NIGHT Saturday afternoon edition on NBC broadcast TV. To be certain, Glazkov won plenty of new fans with his display of power and grit. He will look to expand his fan base against Scott.
Malik Scott is a tattooed terror who hails from Philadelphia. In his most recent outing last September, Scott stopped rugged Bowie Tupou in the 8th round of their Oakland, CA bout. But despite his impressive 35-bout winning streak, Scott is not yet a household name among boxing fans. Therefore this opportunity to fight on national TV against another promising prospect gives Scott a chance to introduce himself to fight enthusiasts and clear up some of the mystery that surrounds him.
Both fighters were outstanding amateur boxers, and are now doing their best to attract attention as professionals. So this intriguing contest should do the trick. Both will enter the ring undefeated, but only one of these heavyweight hopefuls will come out that way. It should be a good one!
The fight is promoted by MainEvents, Goossen Tutor and Star Boxing. Tickets on sale date and prices will be announced shortly.
