Full Fight: Robin van Roosmalen vs. Tim Thomas at GLORY 3 ROME

World Champion Robin “Pokerface” van Roosmalen (34-6-0, 19 KO) defends his belt against GLORY 22 Contender Tournament winner Sitthichai Sitsongpeenong (99-27-5, 26 KO) at GLORY 25 in Milan, Italy.

The video above shows van Roosmalen’s last fight in Italy, stopping Tim Thomas at GLORY 3 ROME.

The Dutch title holder is riding a three-fight win streak under the GLORY banner, most recently defeating rival Andy Ristie at GLORY 20 Dubai in April.

“I’m going to pressure [Sitthichai]. He doesn’t like being put under pressure and pushed backwards,” said van Roosmalen. “It will be a great fight and I look forward to keeping hold of this belt for a long time.”

The challenger from Thailand stormed onto the scene in his promotional debut at GLORY 22 Lille in June, knocking out former lightweight champion Davit Kiria and notching a dominant unanimous decision victory over young contender Josh Jauncey in the same night to earn his No. 1 ranking and title shot.

“It is very difficult for an orthodox stance fighter to withstand the the damage from my powerful left kicks,” said Sitthichai. “[Van Roosmalen] is tough and has good heart; he will be harder to hurt than my past opponents. He is also dangerous, a heavy puncher.”
