Grigorian Out, Vienot In For GLORY 60 Main Event
There has been a change at the top of the card for GLORY 60.
The main event for the October 20 event in Lyon, France was supposed to be a welterweight title fight between Harut Grigorian and Cédric Doumbé. That fight is no longer happening due to Grigorian suffering from acute gastroenteritis.
Doumbé will still fight in the main event but now it will be against Jimmy Vienot, scheduled to fight earlier on the card.
Grigorian’s team offered the following statement: “On behalf of the Team Grigorian, we sincerely apologize to all kickboxing fans, GLORY and Cédric Doumbé for the inconvenience. Harut will continue working hard to recover as soon as possible and is already looking forward to defending his world title in the very near future.”
With the change in the main event, another on the card was shuffled around. The super bantamweight bout between Sofia Olofsson and Cindy Silvestre has also been moved up from GLORY 60 SuperFight Series to GLORY 60 Lyon, completing a five-fight card.
