Scott Tells Glazkov: I'm From Philly, I Won't Quit Like Tor!

If Malik Scott is as confident and entertaining in the ring Saturday night as he was during a news conference Thursday, his heavyweight fight against Vyacheslav Glazkov might be better theater than most expect.

Philadelphia’s Scott (35-0, 12 KOs) has developed a deserved reputation for pounding out mostly dull decision wins against average opposition during his 12-year pro career. Scott spoke, though, as if he is highly motivated to prove that he, not the well-regarded Glazkov (14-0, 10 KOs), is the ‘A’ side of their 10-round fight in Huntington, N.Y.

“There’s a lot of questions out there and I’m going to answer every one of them Saturday night,” Scott said. “The same way I know [Glazkov’s] good attributes, I also see loopholes in his game. I plan on taking advantage of every last one of those loopholes Saturday night.”

NBC Sports Network will televise the Glazkov-Scott fight as the main event of a doubleheader from The Paramount. Huntington’s Chris Algieri (15-0, 7 KOs) and Jose Peralta (10-1, 6 KOs), of Passaic, N.J., will square off in the co-featured fight, a 10-round junior welterweight bout that’ll start the telecast at 10:30 p.m. ET.

Glazkov, who won a bronze medal for Ukraine at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, has been impressive since making his pro debut in July 2009. But the 6-foot-4, 225-pound Scott, while not considered a puncher, represents a step up in opposition for the 28-year-old Glazkov.

The 32-year-old Scott scoffed at the thought of his fight against Glazkov at all resembling Glazkov’s victory over Tor Hamer on Dec. 22 in Bethlehem, Pa. New York’s Hamer (19-2, 12 KOs) inexplicably quit on his stool after four relatively uneventful rounds with the 6-3, 225-pound Glazkov in a fight that was broadcast by NBC.

“I’m looking forward to staying undefeated,” Scott said. “I’m looking forward to [Glazkov] bringing his ‘A’ game. My ‘A’ game is ready. I am not Tor Hamer. This is not that type of party. I’m from North Philly. We do not quit on no stools. You’re definitely going to have to put me out. I’m going out on my shield. I’m not quitting on no stool. … When a fighter quits on his stool and the heat wasn’t even turned up on him yet, he shouldn’t even be allowed back in boxing. And Tor Hamer can take that whichever way he wants. That wasn’t fair to NBC, that wasn’t fair to [Glazkov]. If you look at the fight, after the fight [Glazkov] was like, ‘I didn’t even do nothing and Tor quit.’ It’s not that type of party right here. I’m from a different cloth. I’m 35-0 for a reason.”

He obviously has little respect for Hamer, but Scott gave Glazkov credit for his willingness to face an unbeaten opponent who has more than twice as many professional fights on his record.

“You’ve got to give credit to [Glazkov] and [promoter] Kathy [Duva], because Kathy always takes the necessary risks with all her fighters,” said Scott, who was promoted by Duva’s Main Events for most of his career, before signing with Goossen Tutor Promotions. “She’s not trying to baby them. Nah. ‘You’re 14-0, you’ve got 300 amateur fights, we’re giving you Malik Scott.’ That’s how the game’s supposed to be. You’ve got to give all the credit to her because this is how the heavyweight division is going to turn around.”

Malik Scott has the ability to soundly out box Glazkov for the whole fight. He has fast hands, pretty quick for a heavyweight as far as feet, and a solid jab. He can jab his way to a decision. But it remains to be seen if he can do that against quality opposition. Glazkov is the first good/prett...

This is going to be a barn burner - Glazkov is similar to Vassily Jurov(before James Toney got to his azz) Malik Scott is very good, just has not been really tested, but who knows his comp probably wasn't good enough to test him? this is what the heavyweight division should be about - I cannot wa...
