Glazkov Tells Malik Scott: I Do My Talking in The Ring

Even ignoring the handicap of English not being his native tongue, rising heavyweight prospect Vyachaslev Glazkov never expected to hang with Malik Scott at the microphone during Thursday’s press conference in Woodbury (Long Island, New York).

The pair of unbeaten heavyweights were on hand to promote their NBC Sports Network headliner Saturday evening at the Paramount Theatre in Huntington, NY. Scott spoke with passion when addressing the assembled media on hand, that he’s ready to go out on his shield and how Philly fighters don’t lie down.

His words were moving to those who listened, but not much more than a lot of noise to Glazkov, or to anyone else who doesn’t speak or understand English very well. The 2008 Olympic Bronze medalist wouldn’t have cared if it was spoken in his native Ukrainian or in Russian – what a fighter has to say is far less important than what he is able to do.

“I understand Malik Scott is talking a lot,” Glazkov (14-0, 10KO) said during Thursday’s press conference. “I don’t like to talk too much. I will do (my talking) in the ring.”

Part of Scott’s behind-the-mic sermon stemmed from comments made earlier in the week that were attributed to Glazkov’s camp. Scott claimed that Glazkov’s head trainer, the legendary Don Turner predicted a knockout victory for his fighter in Saturday’s fight.

The veteran cornerman felt the need to address the issue.

“I think he’s a good fighter. I don’t know where he got that I said he was going to get knocked out,” Turner publicly questioned. “Maybe it’s on his mind, maybe he read it but I never said it.”

But then… he did.

“Anyway, he is,” Turner quipped. “I’m not shortchanging Malik Scott. He’s undefeated and I know a lot of undefeated fighters. But he won’t be undefeated after Saturday night.”

Glazkov is anxious for a real challenge, unlike his last fight, which denied him the chance at a definitive breakout performance.

The Ukraine transplant – now fighting out of northern New Jersey – made his televised debut, serving in supporting capacity on a live Saturday afternoon NBC broadcast last December. He was anxious to make a statement, but American heavyweight Tor Hamer wasn’t as willing, quitting on his stool after founds of not-very-threatening in-ring action.

Regardless of the outcome, Glazkov expects a much stiffer test against Scott (35-0, 12KO).

“I hope that everyone will see a real fight,” Glazkov wishes. “Like myself, my opponent is undefeated. We will be trying very hard to keep our undefeated record.”
