Boxing fans are always on the lookout for a new star at heavyweight. After handling Tomasz Adamek earlier this year, Vyacheslav Glazkov has inserted his name into that conversation.
With pound-for-pound star Guillermo Rigondeaux tragically underutilized since his defeat of Nonito Donaire, Top Rank and HBO should have their eyes on undefeated youngsters Tomoki Kameda and Carl Frampton.
Showtime and HBO only present a certain number of big boxing weekends a year, so spots on them are limited. A slot at the top of those cards is even harder to come by.
But the fighters on this list are on the cusp of those kinds of opportunities.
