PHILADELPHIA, PA, JULY 1, 2010 — Yet another medalist from the most recent Olympics has been added to a special night of boxing on Wednesday night July 14th at The Arena in South Philadelphia as heavyweight bronze medalist Vyacheslav Glazkov will take on the immensely popular Mark “Oak Tree” Brown in a bout scheduled for six rounds.

This show will be the first in the brand new Comcast Boxing Series that will be televised around the country and is promoted by No Limits Promotions.

The main event will feature undefeated Israeli sensation, Ran Nakash taking on former Light Heavyweight champion Lou Del Valle in a bout scheduled for ten rounds.

Glazkov of Lugasnk, Ukraine could have done better than the bronze but an elbow injury forced him out of the competition just before his third fight.

As a pro, Glazkov has been perfect as he is 5-0 with three knockouts.  He has spread out his victories as he has won two fights each in Russia and Ukraine with his remaining win coming in the Dominican Republic.

In his last bout, the twenty-five year old scored a third round stoppage over Ivan Shvayko on April 24th in Kiev Ukraine.

Brown of Salem, New Jersey, has a record of 15-3 with seven knockouts.

He is one of the most popular fighters in the tri-state area with his gregarious personality and antics outside the ring.

In the ring, Brown won his first seven bouts before being stopped by then undefeated knockout artist Joey Abell (6-0) on July 7, 2006.

 After that first defeat, Brown won eight consecutive fights which included his incredible come from behind stoppage victory over then undefeated Tony Grano (14-0-1).

Already down multiple times, Brown came back in the eighth and final round to stop Grano and claim the vacant WBF title.

After one more victory, Brown has dropped his last two fights.  He was stopped by former world title challenger Fres Oquendo (29-5-1) and his last bout, Brown almost pulled off another miracle finish in the rematch with Grano.

After losing just about all of the first nine rounds, Brown dropped Grano in the tenth and final round but was unable to stop Grano in the rematch the took place on March 12th.

That bout is just one of the seven world class bouts scheduled for July 14th.

In the main event, Nakash (24-0, 18 KO’s) will battle former light heavyweight champion, Del Valle (36-6-2, 22 KO’s) in what will be by far Nakash’s toughest foe to date.
