Scott – Glazkov fight ends in controversial draw
By Jim Dower: Earlier tonight, the heavyweight clash between unbeaten Malik Scott (35-0-1, 12 KO’s) and the highly hyped Vyacheslav Glazkov (14-0-1, 10 KO’s) ended in a controversial 10 round draw at the Paramount in Huntington, New York. The final scores were 98-92 for Scott, 96-94 for Glazkov and 95.
Scott looked to be the better fighter throughout and was definitely landing the cleaner punches in the last half of the fight. Glazkov was not impressive.
On the undercard, unbeaten light welterweight Chris Algieri (15-0, 7 KO’s) defeated Jose Peralta (10-2, 6 KO’s) by a 10 round unanimous decision. The final judges’ scores were 96-94, 97-93 and 98-92.
