NEW YORK -- Heavyweight contender Tomasz Adamek is sick and his fight with rising prospect Vyacheslav “Czar” Glazkov is in jeopardy, promoter Main Events announced on Wednesday.

The fight is scheduled to be televised Saturday afternoon (Nov. 16) on NBC.

According to Main Events spokesman Ellen Haley, Adamek went to see a doctor on Wednesday. A source said there is a slight chance that Adamek could fight on Saturday, but Main Events has already begun exploring possibilities for a replacement. Bryant Jennings, who has made numerous appearances fighting on Main Events promoted shows on NBC Sports Network, passed on the fight.

“[Adamek] is not feeling well,” Haley said in an email. “He wants to wait until tomorrow to see if he feels better before making any decisions regarding Saturday's fight.”

Even if Adamek can’t go, the show will go on. Unlike an HBO or Showtime card, NBC shows cannot be canceled. In addition to Adamek-Glazkov, NBC is scheduled to air an eight-round lightweight fight between Karl Dargan (13-0) and Mike Brooks (11-0-1). Scheduled to appear on the untelevised undercard is light heavyweight prospect Isaac Chilemba (20-2-2), who will take on Michael Gbenga (13-9).
