Glazkov vs Wilson, Dargan vs Brooks, DeGale vs Davis: Afternoon live thread

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Two notable fight cards are live this afternoon, so here's a place to discuss them! On NBC at 2:30 pm EST, Vyacheslav Glazkov will face short-notice opponent Garrett Wilson in the heavyweight main event, with lightweight prospects Karl Dargan and Mike Brooks also in action.

At 5 pm EST on Channel 5 (UK), James DeGale will face Dyah Davis in a super middleweight main event.

Glazkov (15-0-1, 11 KO) was originally set to face A-side Tomasz Adamek, but Adamek fell ill this week and had to withdraw from the bout. Wilson (13-6-1, 7 KO) is a natural cruiserweight (and a short one, at 5'9"), but he's more capable than his record might suggest.

Dargan (13-0, 7 KO) is the prospect expected to be showcased against Brooks (10-0-1, 2 KO).

In the UK, DeGale (16-1, 11 KO) takes another sideways step against Davis (22-3-1, 10 KO), a decent fighter but far from a contender. Chris Eubank Jr (11-0, 6 KO) will also be in action on the card, facing Frankie Borg (8-1, 3 KO).
