Veteran Polish boxer Tomasz Adamek will face rising Ukrainian prospect Vyacheslav "Czar" Glazkov in the main event on NBC Sports Network this Saturday, March 15. See all the betting odds for Adamek vs Glazkov including an undercard that features Kermit Cintron.
The bookies are divided about the betting odds with SportBet currently listing Czar Glazkov as the (-120) favorite with Adamek (+100), while bet365 lists Tomasz Adamek as the (-120) favorite.
Boxing gamblers seem just as divided on this fight as the bookies are because the betting odds have been bouncing back and forth, with gamblers backing both sides and causing each fighter to switch from being the slight favorite, to the slight underdog.
The major questions heading into the fight are; the age of Tomasz Adamek and the relative inexperience of Czar Glazkov. Adamek has the vast edge in experience with 44 pro fights, many of them 12 round title bouts. But, at 37 years of age, Adamek has shown sign of wearing down having already postponed this fight in 2013 because he had "the flu".
Czar Glazkov is a decorated amateur boxer out of the Ukraine who is undefeated as a professional at 16-0-1. Glazkov will have a natural size advantage over Adamek having competed at super-heavyweight in the Olympics while Adamek was a light-heavyweight. Glazkov does give up experience in this fight and has never entered the championship rounds before.
Ronald Cruz (-150) vs Kermit Cintron (+120)
The online bookies have Kermit Cintron as the (+120) underdog when he faces the hometown fighter Ronald Cruz in a 10 round bout. Cruz is coming off 3 straight KO wins while Cintron is 2-3-1 since falling out of the ring against Williams back in 2010.
Isaac Chilemba (-175) vs Denis Grachev (+138)
African boxer Isaac Chilemba is most recognized for his two fights with Tony Bellew, where he earned a draw in Bellew's backyard that required a rematch. Denis Grachev lost via TKO1 to Edwin Rodriguez in his last fight and the referee allowed Grachev to absorb ungodly amounts of punishment. It will be interesting to see how Grachev bounces back after a loss like that.
