Tor Hamer-Vyacheslav Glazkov on Adamek Bill, 12/22

In a match of young, exciting, up and coming heavyweights, New York's Tor Hamer, 19-1, 12 KOs, takes on Ukraine's Vyacheslav Glazkov, 13-0, 9 KOs, in the co-feature bout on Saturday, December 22nd when boxing returns to network TV in a special afternoon edition of NBC's acclaimed Fight Night boxing series. The broadcast begins at 4PM ET, from the Sands Casino Resort in Bethlehem, PA.

The main event features the highly anticipated rematch between former world champions Tomasz "Goral" Adamek, 47-2, 29 KOs, and "USS" Steve Cunningham, 25-4, 12 KOs, for the #2 position in the IBF rankings. Adamek won their first meeting, which was a "fight of the year" candidate in 2008.

In their 8-rounder, Hamer and Glazkov will look to attract the attention needed to begin their own climb up the heavyweight ladder. However, only one of them, the winner of the fight, can make a move.

Hamer, the college-educated pugilist dubbed by the Village Voice as the "Gentleman Boxer", is an exciting combatant who is riding an 8-bout winning streak. In his most recent fight, Hamer plastered Dominique Alexander in just over four minutes, scoring a second round TKO in St. Charles, MO in October.

In June of this year Hamer bested Kevin Johnson to win the Prizefighter UK heavyweight tournament in London, England.

Glazkov has never lost as a pro, and in his last outing defeated tough Konstantin Airich of Kazakhstan over ten rounds. The near-shutout win earned Glazkov the Vacant WBC Baltic Silver Heavyweight Title. The fight with Hamer will be just his second appearance in the United States.

As an amateur Glazkov won a bronze medal as a super heavyweight in Beijing in 2008. He also defeated David Price in the amateurs.

Both fighters have strong amateur backgrounds, are close in size, age, and experience, and bring good punching power to the fight. Such similarity makes the contest a real toss-up between two rising prospects in the stiffest tests of their respective careers.

Great matchmaking here. Here are two relatively unknown, but up-and-coming, heavyweight boxers.

Comment by Greg House on 11-27-2012

Putting that Tor beat Kevin Johnson to win that heavyweight prizefighting championship as one of his best accomplishments it's very misleading. It's true but that was a 3 round fight. He was just more active than Kevin because he knew…

Comment by joe strong on 11-27-2012

Good to see 2 up & comers fighting on tv but my only issue is it's 8 rounds & not 10 or 12. These guys need to be fighting 10 rounders at least at this point. That's one thing that…
