Featherweight Title Fight Added to GLORY 25 MILAN
Another title will be on the line at GLORY 25 MILAN.
The now completed card taking place on November 6 from the Palaper in Monza, Italy already features the return of Giorgio Petrosyan, who will take on the fast-rising Josh Jauncey, as well as a lightweight title fight between Robin van Roosmalen and Sittichai Sitsongpeenong.
There will also be a one-night, four-man welterweight “Contender” tournament.
The world’s leading kickboxing promotion has also announced that a featherweight title fight between champion Gabriel Varga and Serhiy Adamchuk — originally scheduled for Bellator 142: Dynamite 1 — will headline the Superfight Series portion of the fight card.
Varga (26-2) has won four fights in a row and defeated Mosab Amrani at GLORY 20 to win the promotion’s first featherweight championship. Adamchuk (29-5) won his only GLORY fight over Marat Grigorian back in June.
The four welterweights and two semifinal matchups were also announced for the GLORY 25 “Contender” tournament. Dutch veteran Murthel “The Predator” Groenhart (56-18-3) will take on Nicola Gallo (22-9-1) of Italy, and Swiss boxer-Muay thai fighter Yoann Kongolo (60-5) is set to face Frenchman Karim “Gadjetboy” Ghajji (93-10-1).
The winner will face current welterweight champion Nieky Holzken at GLORY 26 on Dec. 4, 2015 in Amsterdam.
