Vyacheslav “Czar” Glazkov
February 18, 2013 – With less than one week remaining before the undefeated heavyweight showdown between Vyacheslav “Czar” Glazkov, 14-0, 10 KOs, and Malik Scott, 35-0, 12 KOs, legendary trainer Don Turner weighed in with his opinion on Glazkov, the hard-hitting Ukraine boxer he has been working with to prepare for this fight.  Turner, who’s worked with top-flight fighters like Evander Holyfield, Larry Holmes, and numerous other world champions, serves as a “training supervisor” for Glazkov.

“Czar has a great work ethic,” Turner said.  “He’s very manageable, and unlike most of the fighters out there today, he doesn’t think he knows everything.  He’s willing to work at his craft, unlike most heavyweights these days.”

Glazkov impressed in his last outing by stopping well-respected Tor Hamer after four rounds on December 22nd.  The big victory was broadcast on national television, and served well as a coming out party for Czar.  The fight with Scott, a 10-round main event on the NBC Sports Network Fight Night series on February 23rd, figures to give the 28 year old boxer another big stage to display his skills. The Fight Night telecast will begin at 10:30PM ET.

“He’s been in the gym since he was 10 years old,” Turner said.  “He’s confident of what he can do, and his trainer, Eduardo Menshekov, is probably one of the best conditioners out there.  So we know he’s always in shape.  But the best thing about Glazkov is that he’s not afraid.  He’s not going to run when he gets hit.  He’s going to fight.  This is where the great ones shine.  They don’t back down when they get hit, and Czar has that quality.  I think he can bring the whole package to the table.”

The fight with Scott is expected to be “Boxer vs. Puncher”, with Scott bringing the movement and Glazkov providing the power.  With both fighters defending their undefeated records, the fight could turn into a bitter battle between the two.  The old saying, “Somebody’s “O” has got to go”, definitely applies to this fight, but Don Turner is certain he knows which “O” will remain intact.

“The first time Scott gets hit, he’s going to need a track coach,” Turner said.  “Czar will knock him silly.  If Czar is the fighter I think he is, he’ll go hard and win this fight.”

And after that?

“I wouldn’t be averse to putting him in with any of these guys out there,” Turner said.  “Czar wants to fight and he wants to be a champion.”
