THIS Saturday night (August 9) at the Sands in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, Derric Rossy will take on IBF No. 2-rated heavyweight Vyacheslav Glazkov in a 10 rounder, live on NBC Sports Network.

Rossy of Medford, New York, is looking to get back into championship contention. The 34-year old knows that a win over Glazkov will catapult him right back into the rankings.

“Glazkov is a very sound fighter. What he does, he does well. That’s what you get when you are fighting the top guys,” said Rossy.

“This fight is big for both of us. It could mean a title fight. Two well-qualified fighters are fighting each other. Whoever wins this should be in talks for a world title.”

Said Rossy’s longtime promoter, Sal Musumeci of Final Forum Promotions: “This is a crossroads fight for Derric. If he wins this, he will be in line to get into contention to bring the heavyweight title back to the United States. I commend Glazkov for taking this great risk against a live and true contender in Rossy.”
