Magomed is More Than Happy To Collide With Glazkov

By Bill Kozloff, Allboxing.ru

Undefeated Magomed Abdusalamov (16-0, 16KOs), and his manager Boris Grinberg, reject claims that they are not interested in facing Vyacheslav Glazkov (14-0, 10KOs). They were offered the opportunity to face Glazkov on February 23rd in the United States, with NBC Sports televising.

Grinberg clarified the situation:

"Indeed, we received a proposal. Mago was very happy and did not hesitate for a second and said he was ready to accept the challenge. However, [promoter] Sampson [Lewkowicz] spoke to us and we decided that this fight could take place later on. Let Glazkov fight someone ranked in the top 15 and we will arrange a fight with Mago. Glazkov is a good fighter, but his European style is very suitable for us and Mago would gladly come to fight him and score a brutal knockout. Ideally, of course, such a fight should be held as an eliminator for a position to become a mandatory challenger for a title."

For his part, Mago said:

"Yes I want to fight him, but my promoters said they will organize this match later on. It would be a pleasure to fight with him or anyone else. This is why I'm in boxing. This is my job. The selection of opponents, that is the job of my promoters."

Funny how guys try to spin things. How a guy openly admitting he's not willing to fight someone becomes "I'm not turning the fight down" is politician-worthy. Magomed has no impressive wins, yet will only face Glazkov if he first…

[QUOTE=kokingbill;12912522]Magomed would destroy glazkov. Glazkov is a cruiserweight. He should drop a couple pounds and fight there. Barely maybe 6ft tall only like 215 fully clothed soaking wet. Magomed would KO him inside if two rounds. Glazkov would be defenseless…
