National Network Television Boxing Coming to Turning Stone for NBC Fight Night, in the Afternoon, November 16
Heavyweight Bout in the Main Event as Tomasz Adamek Defends IBF North American Heavyweight Title Against Vyacheslav Glazkov
For the fifth time in 2013, Turning Stone Resort Casino will host nationally televised professional boxing, as NBC’s Fight Night will originate, live, in the afternoon, Saturday, November 16 from the Turning Stone Event Center.
Presented by Main Events and co-promoted by Ziggy Promotions and Pushka, the feature bout will be a heavyweight matchup as Tomasz “Goral” Adamek, (49-2, 29 KOs) will take on Vyacheslav “Czar” Glazkov, (15-0-1, 11 KOs).
The veteran Adamek, a native of Poland who makes his home in Jersey City, NJ, will put his IBF North American Heavyweight belt on the line in this 12-round battle, against the up and coming Ukrainian. The IBF has designated this bout as a heavyweight voluntary eliminator fight for the #2 position in the rankings.
“This fight cannot help but be a non-stop action brawl,” said promoter Kathy Duva of Main Events. “A classic ‘crossroads’ fight, it is exactly the kind of signature launching pad matchup that we like to present on NBC. The winner of Adamek-Glazkov will put himself in a position for much bigger things in 2014.”
Adamek said, “I’m excited to be fighting at Turning Stone for the first time. I’ve spent time with friends and family in that area so I know there will be a big Polish crowd to cheer me on.”
The event will mark the first time NBC has produced a televised boxing event at Turning Stone. The undercard will be announced soon, and all bouts are subject to change.
Doors open at the Turning Stone Resort Casino Event Center at 11:30 a.m. Saturday, November 16. The first undercard bout starts at 12:30 p.m. The special afternoon broadcast presentation of NBC Fight Night begins at 2:30 p.m.
