“Czar” Training Camp Report: Ready for Adamek Media Workout
“Czar” Glazkov Media Workout
NBC Fight Night
Bethlehem PA: In a little more than two weeks veteran heavyweight Tomasz “Goral” Adamek will take on 2008 Olympic Bronze Medalist Vyacheslav “Czar” Glazkov for the IBF North American Heavyweight title and the IBF #2 Eliminator at Sands Resort and Casino in Bethlehem, PA. The March 15th fight will be aired on NBCSN Fight Night along with the Chilemba v. Grachev co-feature beginning at 9:00 PM ET / 6:00 PM PT. The young challenger, Glazkov, 29, opened his training camp to the media and the general public yesterday for an inside look at his workout regime as he prepares to face the dangerous Adamek.
Czar began training at Underground Boxing and Fitness in Brooklyn, NY when he arrived from the Ukraine on Friday, February 21, 2014, but claims to have already adapted to the change in time zone and location: “We just came about three days ago. We have adapted a little bit. Now that we have had our second sparring I think the next two weeks of training before the championship are going to be great.”

Glazkov’s sparring partner yesterday, Newton Kidd, said “He’s got that Klitschko punch.” To which a humble Czar replied, “That is a great compliment but the ring will show the truth. I have prepared myself the most for this fight and we will see what happens after that.” Despite being humbled by the compliment, Czar was not short on confidence. He said, “I don’t see any other way to come into the ring than with confidence that I am going to win the fight. There is no other way for me.”
Preparation is key for this fight because these two competitors are not strangers. Prior to Adamek’s fight with Dominick Guinn on August 3, 2013, Czar sparred with Tomasz. However, Glazkov does not think this will give him any advantage on March 15th, “I think we are on equal grounds here since I sparred with him, he also sparred with me. So whatever I have learned about him, I am sure he learned about me as well.”

With so much at stake both men are at a crossroads in their careers. Adamek, 37, is looking to prove he still belongs among the elite members of the heavyweight division. A win for Vyacheslav will catapult him to the top of the heavyweight division. However, he tried to downplay its importance when he said, “I don’t consider this fight to be anything out of the ordinary or special. I take each fight the same. I come responsibly, I train hard but after winning this fight I will take a #2 position in the heavyweight division and that is very important.”
Both men are promoted by Main Events. This presents a bittersweet challenge for Main Events’ CEO, Kathy Duva, who said, “I hate putting two of our fighters against each other. I feel like Archie Manning when the Giants play the Broncos! But we made this fight because it’s the right fight for both guys and it will be fantastic in the ring. I won’t enjoy it but the fans at the Sands and watching on NBCSN will see a great fight.
