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).
