Adamek Withdraws From Glazkov Fight Due To Illness
VERONA, NY –
Heavyweight and Polish fan favorite Tomasz Adamek will not be fighting against Vyascheslav Glazkov Saturday’s Main Events fight card. Adamek withdrew after becoming ill and instead Garrett Wilson (13-6-1) will be fighting in his place allowing the card to go on.
Citing stomach flu, Adamek issued the following statement:
“For the first time in my career I have had to pull out of a bout. I apologize to all of my fans, but the stomach flu has hit me so hard that it is impossible to go through with Saturday’s bout. I was hoping that against the odds I would recover sufficiently to compete. However, that has not happened. My doctor has told me that I should not fight and, very honestly, I feel awful. Therefore, I had to inform Main Events that I could not compete on Saturday. Again, I apologize, but the circumstances are beyond my control.”
The card will be broadcast on NBC Sports as previously scheduled.
Also fighting on the card:
Karl Dargan vs. Mike Brooks, 10 rounds, lightweights; Isaac Chilemba vs. Michael Gpanga, 8 rounds, light heavyweights; Sevadail Sherifi vs. Quantis Graves, 6 rounds, cruiserweights; Andy Mejias vs. Latif Mundy, 6 rounds, super middleweights; Trent Laidler vs. Anthony Watson, 4 rounds, middleweights; John Magda vs. Maurice Amaro, 4 rounds, super middleweights
