Training Camp Notes: Glazkov With Family Safe and Sound and a Healed Hand, Glazkov Focused on Wilson

Ahead of his bout on the undercard of Hopkins-Kovalev on Nov. 8, Vyacheslav "Czar" Glazkov and his team reflected on his last outing. On Aug. 9,Glazkov defeated Derric Rossy via majority decision, but the fight was much closer than anyone predicted. At the moment Glazkov walked into the ring to face Rossy, he had not heard from his parents in war-torn Ukraine in over two weeks. Physically, his hand had been bothering him since his Mar. 15 battle with veteran Tomasz Adamek. 

After the fight, Czar did not want to make excuses but said, "My hand was bothering me. It wasn't broken, but it did not recover as well as I had hoped. It is not an excuse but it was still bothering me from my fight with Adamek."

Dwayne McRae hopes to stamp ticket to the next level!

A quick glance at the record of heavyweight hopeful Dwayne “Big Ticket” McRae shows a respectable 14 wins against only three defeats with eight of his victories by knockout.
 
After dropping two out of three fights back in 2009, McRae’s lost just once in eleven tries. However, the Maryland native is adamant that he’s better than what you see on paper.
 
“I was robbed in the two decisions,” McRae said of both majority decisions he dropped five years ago. The one fight I lost by TKO was due to a cut and the referee stopped it way too quickly and I know I would’ve come back to win. Truth be told, I feel like an unbeaten fighter.”
