Heavyweight prospect Vyacheslav “Czar” Glazkov will return on August 3 at the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Conn., according to Kathy Duva of Main Events, speaking at a June 27 news conference.
Glazkov, 28, is 14-0-1 with 10 knockouts and is coming off a disputed split draw this past February with Malik Scott. That bout aired on NBC Sports Network. Prior to that, he was on “regular” NBC in December, making Tor Hamer quit on the undercard to the Tomasz Adamek-Steve Cunningham rematch.
Duva said that the Mohegan Sun undercard also will include lightweight prospect Karl Dargan, junior middleweight prospect Tony Harrison, and young welterweight Jimmy Williams,
No opponents were mentioned for those four fighters.
Three bouts on the card are slated for the NBC Sports Network show: Adamek will face heavyweight Tony Grano; Eddie Chambers, now a cruiserweight, will meet Thabiso Mchunu; and middleweight Curtis Stevens will step into the ring against Saul Roman in the main event.
The broadcast will begin at 10:30 p.m. Eastern Time.
