The standout bout sees American based Pole Tomasz Adamek (48-2, 29), a former Light Heavyweight and Cruiserweight champion, taking on one-time prospect Dominick Guinn (34-9-1, 23). For Guinn this is genuinely "last chance saloon", he's had more chances than most in the division and has yet to live up to any of the hype he had early in his career.
At 36 years old and looking like an ever less impressive fighter Adamek may also be about to partake in his final bout. A loss for the Pole may well end his dreams at ever winning a Heavyweight and he may end up calling it quits. The bout is an interesting one in that the loser probably has no where to go whilst the winner may well see themselves one fight from a world title bout. The silly world of the Heavyweight division.
On the same card as the Adamek/Guinn bout there is also action for the unbeaten Bronze Olympic medal winner Vyacheslav Glazkov (14-0-1, 10). Fresh off his controversial draw with Malik Scott, Glazkov will take on journeyman Byron Polley (25-15-1, 11). This bout appears to be little more than a confidence builder for Glazkov who is very forunate to still have that all important "0" on his record.
The drop off in quality after those two bouts is huge. The 3rd most notable Heavyweight clash on Saturday sees Dorsett Barnwell (9-0, 4) facing Juan Goode (4-0, 4). On paper this looks an interesting match up between two unbeaten fighters though digging beneath the numbers tells us the real story.
Goode is returning from 16 months out of the ring, having never previously faces anyone with a winning record. Barnwell, whilst more active, only holds one noteworthy victory, a highly controversial split decision over Joey Dawejko. The victory over Dawejko apart, nothing suggests Barnwell will be anything more than a club fighter down the line. Sure this should be fun but don't expect a star to be born.
The remaining bout that we have details on sees Fred Latham (3-0, 2) in action. The 22 year old unbeaten fighter from Pennsylvania has been fighting soft opponents so far and we'd expect that to continue here, especially given the fact his opponent is yet to even be named, though of course at 22 he's a baby in the division.
