Adamek-Glazkov to get new date

The heavyweight fight between top contender Tomasz Adamek and 2008 Olympic bronze medalist Vyacheslav "Czar" Glazkov is going to be rescheduled, Main Events matchmaker Jolene Mizzone told ESPN.com on Monday.

Adamek (49-2, 29 KOs), the New Jersey-based Polish fighter, and Glazkov (16-0-1, 11 KOs), of Ukraine, were supposed to meet on Nov. 16 in a return of boxing to NBC in an elimination bout to position the winner one step close to a mandatory title shot at one of the belts held by heavyweight champ Wladimir Klitschko.

However, Adamek, a former light heavyweight and cruiserweight titleholder, withdrew the week of the fight because of a stomach flu and was replaced by Garrett Wilson on three days' notice. Glazkov won by lopsided decision in an entertaining fight.

Mizzone said the rescheduled 12-round bout between Adamek and Glazkov will take place on one of Main Events' dates -- March 15 or April 15 -- on NBC Sports Nets' "Fight Night" series.

"Both fighters still want the fight," Mizzone said. "Adamek just had the flu, but he's fine. It wasn't like he broke a bone or anything."
