Adamek (49-2, 29 KO), 37 years old, has only lost twice in his career. He wants to take the heavyweight crown from Glazkob (16-0-1, 11 KO), the undefeated 28-year-old Ukrainian.
The original date was postponed because Adamek said he was feeling ill.
“I’m not concerned with the layoff. He’s a fighter with a lot of experience,” said Adamek’s trainer, Roger Bloodworth, to Ring TV. “Most of your world champions don’t fight every month. That’s important for a young fighter, to keep busy. But when you’re at a certain level, your conditioning and your experience will tell.”
But Glazkob is looking to instill hope in his Ukrainian countrymen with a win.
“This my country, and I’ve got my family over there, and I’m concerned and worried about it. I hope that the politics are going to stop soon,” said Glazkov.
“I hope that people are not going to be fighting very soon. I’m going to try to fight a good bout, and I hope that some people are going to pay more attention to my bout then are going to be involved in that terrible situation that’s going on in my country.”
