Sands Bethlehem, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania - In a much tougher fight than expected, top rated heavyweight Vyacheslav "Czar" Glazkov (18-0-1, 11KOs) had to really suck it up and deal with a very determined Derric Rossy (29-9, 14KOs) to win a ten round majority decision. Rossy unexpectedly threw a very high output of punches and rocked Glazkov several times in the fight. Glazkov, who had a damaged left eye, had Rossy in serious trouble in the tenth and final round but couldn't finish him off. The scores were 95-95, 96-94, 98-92.
In a high stakes light heavyweight battle between two rising contenders, Robert Berridge (24-2-1, 20KOs) of New Zealand was beaten up, dropped three times and ultimately stopped in the fifth round by Vasily Lepikhin (16-0, 9KOs) of Russia.
Hot heavyweight prospect Joseph Parker (10-0, 9KOs) of New Zealand stopped Keith Thompson (7-3, 4KOs) in three rounds. After dominating the first two rounds, Parker unloaded in the third with two knockdowns to finish Thompson off.
