As it turned out, the boxer tore the cruciate ligament that forced him to go under the knife. After surgery, the recovery was successful. But in the autumn of the same year, while jogging, he has damaged the meniscus, which resulted in another surgery. That’s why he followed the decision to radically change his occupation into a trucker just like the ones that can be on the truck driving jobs in Miami.

We will add that according to an authoritative portal Boxrec, Glazkov takes the seventh place in the ranking of the best Ukrainian boxers regardless of weight class — just in front of the brothers, Vitaly and Vladimir Klitschko, Vasyl Lomachenko, Oleksandr Usyk, Viktor Postol and Sergey Derevyanchenko. As for the heavyweight division, Vyacheslav, second only to the Klitschko brothers, as well as Mustache.
