Despite being named to replace Tomasz Adamek in a four days notice, Garrett Wilson showed his entertaining factor against Vyacheslav Glazkov on Saturday afternoon on NBC.
Although, Wilson lost the fight against a taller and bigger Glazkov, he (Wilson) showed how to win the crowd (at least for the crowd) how to fight, and how to entertained, which is the most important for the fight fans.
In the early going it is obvious that he will be dominated by a much agile and skilled undefeated slugger from Ukraine. But Wilson 13-7-1- (KO 7), is dangerous throughout the fight.
Most of his sweeping power hooks missed its target, but Glazkov 16-0-1 (KO 11), knows he’s in trouble once he got caught. Glazkov fought cautiously and used his height advantage to evade those looping power shots that Wilson unleashed.
Every time Glazkov connects, Wilson will come back on his own power shots that some find mark on Glazkov chin. But those were not enough to topple the bigger opponent.
Glaskov won on the scores of 97-93, 98-92, and 99-91.
