TOTOWA, NJ - September 7, 2013 - Boxing is back on network TV on Saturday afternoon, November 16th when Tomasz "Goral" Adamek takes on Vyacheslav "Czar" Glazkov on NBC. The 12-round match for Adamek's IBF North American Heavyweight title on NBC. The fight has been sanctioned for the #2 position in the heavyweight division.

Adamek, 49-2, 29 KO's, is coming off an August 3rd 10 round unanimous decision over Dominick Guinn on NBC Sports Network. Glazkov, 15-0-1, 11 KO's, scored a second round TKO against Byron Polley on the same card. The November 16th afternoon broadcast will begin on NBC at 3PM ET.

"We are quite pleased to present this classic match-up between a tough, highly respected veteran and two-division former world champion in Adamek, and an exciting, young up-and-coming former Olympic medalist in Glazkov on our next NBC afternoon broadcast," said promoter Kathy Duva.

"Being back on network TV for the third time in just 11 months makes this event that much more special. When Adamek appeared on NBC, last December, he brought the biggest television audience of 2012. We won't be surprised if Adamek-Glazkov garners the biggest audience on broadcast or cable television for 2013, as well.

Duva added, "I cannot thank everyone at NBC Sports enough for this incredible platform and the support that they have shown for professional boxing over the past two years."

Fight venue details are being finalized and undercard fights will be announced shortly.
