GLORY kickboxing has released the names of those competing in the featherweight contender’s tournament at GLORY 39 in Brussels, Belgium, on March 25.
The mini-tournament will feature Petchpanomrung Kiatmookao taking on Russian Muay Thai champion Alexei Ulyanov, who makes his promotional debut, and former GLORY featherweight champion Serhiy Adamchuk facing off with Anvar Boynazarov. The two winners will meet later that night in a final bout to determine who will face former champion Robin van Roosmalen in a future bout for the vacant title.
Roosmalen was stripped of the title back on January 19 for failing to make weight prior to a title defense.
