Czar Glazkov: "Preparation is going very good. Training is two to three times a day. I can't predict what is going to happen. I think Steve Cunningham is going to be 100% ready. I am preparing very seriously for every single fight. Every single fight gives me more experience. And every single fight gives me something new to work on. This is boxing and I don't like to predict things. Right now it is 100% concentration on Steve Cunningham. I don't know what is going to happen after this fight. I don't care who I face next."

Isaac Chilemba:
"When I look at an opponent I want to know their style and their height. I watch their fights but not the whole video. I just want see how is their fighting style. My biggest strength is my belief in my ability to win. I believe I am good enough to beat anyone. When I walk in the ring I am confident enough to know that I am going to get in there and do what I was meant to do. I am going to walk out victorious."

  Isaac Chilemba's Journey From
One-Room Shack In Malawi To HBO
 
As Isaac "Golden Boy" Chilemba prepares to face Vasily "The Professor" Lepikhin in a ten-round fight for the NABF Light Heavyweight Championship on Saturday, March 14 live on HBO World Championship Boxing®, he cannot help but reflect back on all that he has been through to get himself to this moment.

The 27-year old Chilemba grew up poor in the world's poorest country, Malawi. He lived with his mother, brother and sister in a one-room shack. According to Chilemba, "Growing up in Malawi was very hard. I grew up with a single mother and she worked in a shop. I had to quit my education because my mother couldn't afford it. I lived in one room with my mother, my brother and my sister. There was no bedroom. We were sitting on the floor. My mother would sleep on one side of the floor and my brother, my sister and I would sleep on the other side on the floor."
