LONDON, ENGLAND (March 22, 2013)

Headline heavyweights Tyrone Spong (68-6-1 42 KO’s) and Remy Bonjasky (77-15, 40 KO’s) got nose-to-nose at today’s official weigh-ins for GLORY 5 London.

Their face-off had an extra level of intensity added to it as Spong arrived late for the weigh-in and kept Bonjasky standing around waiting. The decorated veteran felt he had not been afforded the respect he deserved and Spong received a good dose of evil eye as he finally strolled in to take the scales.

Also on the scales were top British talents Liam Harrison (67-13-2, 38 KO’s) and Jordan Watson (29-5-1, 14 KO’s), who were bang on weight for their main card clashes tomorrow night. Harrison’s Dutch-Moroccan opponent Mosab Amrani (48-7-4, 14 KO’s) made weight with no issues but Australian KO artist Steve Moxon (29-4-1, 16 KO’s) was 100 grams over and had to go for a short jog around the block to get rid of the excess. “I should have cut my hair,” he quipped.

Bonjasky wasn’t the only fighter initially left solo beside the scales. Top lightweight (70 kilos/155lbs) contender Albert Kraus (72-15-3, 43 KO’s) weighed in but had nobody to stare down with because scheduled opponent Andy Ristie (36-2-1, 20 KO’s), a Suriname national based in the Netherlands, hit last-minute visa problems and had to withdraw.

Kraus now faces Warren Stevelmans (64-16-4, 20 KO’s), who had been set to face French prodigy Johann Fauveau (26-2-1, 16 KO’s) on the undercard. Fauveau will now make his GLORY debut against London-based Romanian import Pasniciuc Constantin.

SINGAPORE (March 20, 2013)

Less than two months after he pulled off a miraculous victory in the inaugural development Road To GLORY USA light heavyweight (209 pounds) tournament, Dustin Jacoby (3-0, 3 KO’s) of Arenzville, Illinois has been added to the highly anticipated GLORY 5 London kickboxing mega-card at ExCel Arena on Saturday, March 23, and will face fellow rising star Michael Duut (36-3, 16 KOs) of Amsterdam, Holland, Glory Sports International announced today.

Jacoby shocked the kickboxing world by winning the first-ever development Road To GLORY USA tournament at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Tulsa, Okla. on Feb. 1, after accepting the offer to compete as a last-minute replacement for one of the eight original tournament fighters, on just 36 hours’ notice. Jacoby steamrolled his way through the field, stopping all three of his opponents – Randy Blake, Roy Boughton and Brian Collette – inside the distance in the one-night, single-elimination playoff.

To date, Jacoby has primarily competed under MMA rules. Seven of his eight career MMA wins have come by (T)KO and he has yet to be stopped.

Dustin Jacoby’s performance in the development Road To GLORY USA tournament was really something special and is what earned him a place on GLORY’s big stage,” said Glory Sports International CEO Andrew Whitaker . “Of course, now he will be tasked with competing against an opponent with a great deal more experience in the kickboxing ring than he has faced yet, so it will be very interesting to see how he fares against this stiffer challenge in Michael Duut.

Like Jacoby, Duut has demonstrated tremendous striking power. His decimation of former Dutch amateur boxing champion Ricardo van den Bos last November was nominated for the 2012 ‘KO of the Year’ award by kickboxing media outlet Liverkick.com.

Glory Sports International also confirmed today that U.S. karate sensation Raymond Daniels has been removed from the GLORY 5 London card and will be rescheduled to compete soon.

In the highly-anticipated heavyweight main event, all-time great and three-time K-1 World Grand Prix tournament champion Remy Bonjasky (77-15, 40 KO’s) of Netherlands will take on ferocious, surging superstar Tyrone Spong (68-6-1 42 KO’s) of Boca Raton, Fla. via Netherlands.

Kevin Ross, Abdellah Ezbiri, Mosab Amrani, Marcos Vinicius and ROAD TO GLORY Japan winner slated for action

in eight-man, single-elimination tournament Tickets on sale Friday, March 1

 
 

SINGAPORE (Feb. 28, 2013) – GLORY, the world’s new premier kickboxing league, will return to Tokyo, Japan with a one-night, eight-man, single-elimination ‘Slam’ tournament featuring a collection of the brightest stars in the featherweight (65 kilograms/143 pounds) division, at Ariake Coliseum on Friday, May 3.

American superstar Kevin EL PRESIDENTE Ross (37-9, 12 KOs) of Dublin, Calif. will make his highly-anticipated GLORY debut in the tournament field where he will be faced with an assembly of cutthroat competition in three-time French kickboxing champion Abdellah Ezbiri (32-6, 11 KOs) of Morocco via France, world Muay Thai champion Mosab THE JAGUAR Amrani (48-7-4, 14 KOs) of Holland and The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil reality series contestant and KO artist Marcos Vinicius (MMA Record: 20-4-1, 7 KOs) of Curitiba, Brazil.

Joining the first four elite fighters thus far confirmed for the tournament that will award its competitors with a total of $180,000 in prize money, including $100,000 to the winner, will be the victor of the inaugural, eight-man, development series ROAD TO GLORY Japan tournament at Differ Ariake Arena in Tokyo on Sunday, March 10, as well as three additional competitors to be announced soon.

Tickets for GLORY 8 Tokyo on Friday, May 3, beginning at 16:00 at Ariake Coliseum, will be priced from ¥5,000, and will go on sale at 10:00 a.m. JST tomorrow, Friday, March 1, online at Pia, E-Plus and Lawson Ticket.

“With the fighter selection process for the GLORY 8 Tokyo featherweight Slam tournament underway, we are assembling what could very well be the most competitive tournament field in the history of kickboxing’s featherweight division,” said GLORY Sports International Managing Director Marcus Luer. “We are bringing together the best possible group of talent from all parts of the world in order to determine who the reigning king of this division is.

Ross, the 2010 Muay Thai North American Fighter of the Year, is widely recognized as the face of kickboxing in the U.S. During his stellar career, the 32-year-old technician has faced and defeated a host of top-ranked rivals, including decorated Thai champions Malaipet THE DIAMOND Sasiprapa and COKE Chunhawat.

The 25-year-old Ezbiri has made waves both in his native Europe as well as in Japan where he was the winner of another eight-man tournament in 2011 and finished as runner-up after a controversial decision loss in the championship stage of a 67 kilogram/148 pound tournament at the hands of Japanese phenom Yuta Kubo on Jan. 14.

Amrani, a 25-year-old, former intercontinental Muay Thai champion, rose to power after stopping Thai champions Anuwat Kaewsamrit and Bovy Sor Udomson in 2008 and 2009, respectively. Amrani also boasts a victory over Moroccan southpaw phenom Ibrahim Chiahou. His tournament start marks a drop in weight after a stint at 70 kilograms/154 pounds.

Vinicius has gained widespread acclaim for his power since earning ‘KO of the Night’ honors at UFC 147 where he decimated Wagner Campos with a barrage of punches and knee strikes in the third round of their matchup on June 23, 2012. During his stint on The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil, Vinicius trained under legend Wanderlei Silva.

SINGAPORE (Feb. 26, 2013)

Four-time world champion Stephen Wakeling (36-4, 14 KO’s) of Kent, England will square off with fast-rising KO artist Eddie SHOWTIME Walker (11-2-1, 9 KOs) of Atlanta, Ga. in a middleweight (85 kilograms/187 pounds) contest at the star-studded GLORY 5London kickboxing event at ExCel Arena in London, England on Saturday, March 23, Glory Sports International announced today.

The 29-year-old Wakeling, renowned for his excellent conditioning and tendency to inflict heavy punishment on opponents, has faced and defeated a host of top-ranked rival superstars, including Thailand’s famed world champion Jaowchalam Chatjanokgym and Australian powerhouse Wayne JOHN Parr. On July 7, 2012, Wakeling fought pound-for-pound sensation Artem Levin to a draw in a spectacular, five-round bout in England.

Wakeling comes from a high pedigree of fighting stock. His father Mark was a successful fighter in his own right and had a career which culminated with a fight in Thailand’s prestigious annual King’s Cup tournament in 1998. Wakeling’s brother, Mike, is a European champion.

Walker, experienced a career breakthrough last year when he scored a shocking, upset KO of WBC interim Muay Thai champion Joe STITCH EM UP Schilling after Schilling had put Walker down twice early in the fight in Las Vegas, Nev.

The come-from-behind victory earned Walker a spot in the ROAD TO GLORY USA inaugural, middleweight development series tournament in Los Angeles, Calif. on Feb. 9. There, Walker finished as runner-up after scoring a second round (1:26) KO on Edgar Del Fierro and a second round (2:13) TKO on Povey van Wyk in the quarterfinal and semifinal stages of the tournament, respectively.

Walker is known for possessing frightening power in both hands and, with 9 of his 11 professional wins by way of stoppage inside the distance, he has an incredible 81 percent finish rate. Walker trains under Manu N’toh, a renowned instructor who also counts UFC middleweight Brian Stann among his students, and posted a 7-0 amateur record before turning professional in 2010.

In the highly-anticipated heavyweight main event, decorated, all-time great Remy Bonjasky (77-15, 40 KO’s) of The Netherlands will take on ferocious, surging superstar Tyrone Spong (68-6-1 42 KO’s) of Boca Raton, Fla. via The Netherlands.

HEAVYWEIGHT KICKBOXING SUPERSTARS
GOKHAN SAKI AND DANIEL GHITA TO COLLIDE IN
LONG-AWAITED REMATCH AND GLORY MAIN EVENT
IN ISTANBUL, TURKEY ON SATURDAY, APRIL 6
TICKETS FOR GLORY 6 ISTANBUL ON SALE NOW

 
 


 
 

ISTANBUL, Turkey (Feb. 7, 2013) – For the second time in their careers, heavyweight superstar rivals Gokhan Saki THE REBEL (79-16, 55 KOs) of the Netherlands and Daniel Ghita THE SAVAGE SAMURAI (46-8, 35 KOs) of Romania will collide in the ring, in the main event of GLORY 6 Istanbul on Saturday April 6, it was confirmed today by Glory Sports International (GSI).

Tickets for the event, which takes place at the Ülker Sports Arena, are priced from 28TL and are available for purchase online via Biletix/Ticketmaster Turkey.

Just over two years after their December 2010 fight, Saki and Ghita will reprise their roles as adversaries in a meeting that will have the attention of fight fans all over the world. Their first clash was an instant classic and this rematch has an added edge because a shot at the GLORY World Heavyweight Title is on the line for the winner.

Daniel Ghita is ranked No. 2 in the world and Gokhan Saki is ranked No. 3, so this fight will determine which of them is to go on and become the top contender for the GLORY World Heavyweight Title currently held by world No. 1  Semmy Schilt SEM,” says   Marcus Luer, Managing Director of GSI.

“Both of these fighters are absolutely at the peak of their games right now. You only have to look at their performances in the GLORY Heavyweight Grand Slam in Tokyo on New Year’s Eve. Saki scored two lightning-quick KOs before exiting in the semi-final stage and Ghita stopped two of his three opponents to earn a spot in the championship round of the event.”

“The GLORY Heavyweight Championship is the most prestigious belt in kickboxing today and they want it badly – they just have to go through each other to get it.”

”Saki was raised in the Netherlands but is of Turkish heritage and is very proud of his roots. He is a big name in his ancestral land and will quickly find himself being mobbed for pictures and autographs if he wanders the streets of a big city. Ghita is entering the lion’s den by agreeing to face Saki in the Turkish capital of Istanbul, but the former bodyguard to the Romanian president knows no fear.”

Both fighters saw the New Year in with a bang via their performances in the Grand Slam. Saki demolished Japanese contender Raoumaru in the opening stage and then flattened top Brazilian heavyweight Anderson Silva BRADDOCK. He was scoring well against Schilt, but the judges had Schilt winning the first two rounds, and so Schilt advanced to the final under the ‘Best of Three Rounds’ tournament rule.

Ghita’s New Year’s Eve tournament run started with a surprisingly vicious challenge from young Jhonata Diniz of Curitiba, Brazil, who established himself as one to watch but was ultimately beaten by the Romanian. Ghita then faced Mourad Bouzidi and dislocated the Tunisian’s shoulder with an uppercut before facing Moroccan prospect Jamal Ben Saddik and taking him out in 10 seconds with a liver kick.

ROAD TO GLORY- Dustin Jacoby – win 20.000 Dollar

Road to Glory - News

 
 
 
 
 

Dustin Jacoby pulls off miracle tournament win, after accepting entry on 48 hours notice, in first-ever ROAD TO GLORY – USA event earns $20.000 grand prize and one year GLORY WORD SERIES contract.

 

Pic 1 – Dustin Jacoby – 24 year old Dustin Jacoby (center) was awarded a $20,000 grand prize check by GLORY Ambassador Cor Hemmers (left) and retired legend Frank Shamrock (right), as well as a one-year contract with GLORY World Series, after Jacoby pulled off a miracle victory in the inaugural ROAD TO GLORY USA tournament, defeating three straight opponents by (T)KO. Jacoby had accepted a spot in the tournament just 48 hours before the event began, after one of the original tournament entrants withdrew .

Pic 2 – Jacoby and Collette – Jacoby (right) exchanged blows with Brian Collette (left) in the tournament’s championship round before stopping Collette with a late assault.

TULSK, Oklaoma (Feb. 02, 2013) – After accepting the opportunity to fight just one day before the event, 24-year-old Dustin Jacoby (9-3) of Arenzville, Illin. rose to the occasion, defeating three consecutive opponents, all by way of (T)KO, in one night to capture the inaugural ROAD TO GLORY USA light heavyweight (209 pounds/95 kilograms) tournament championship at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa on Friday, Feb. 1.

Jacoby was called on to compete just 48 hours in advance of the event and drove to Tulsa from Arenzville, after Manuel Quezada, one of the original eight entrants, suddenly withdrew from the tournament for unknown reasons.

In the tournament’s quarterfinal stage, reigning ISKA world champion Randy Blake BOOM BOMM (25-2, 17 KOs) of Tulsa, a local superstar and favorite to win the tournament, battered the left leg of Jacoby and hammered Jacoby with punching combinations for over two rounds. In the third stanza, though, Jacoby suddenly countered with a flurry that put Blake down and forced the referee to intervene and stop the bout at the 1:43 mark of the final scheduled round.

In the semifinal stage, Jacoby faced off with Roy Boughton WRECKIN´ BALL (9-4, 8 KOs), who had defeated Daniel Brison SANDMAN (9-3, 6 KOs) by way of unanimous decision to advance past the quarterfinal stage. After eating a right hand, Jacoby responded with a series of stiff jabs that snapped Boughton’s head back.

Jacoby exploded with a knee strike to the head that sent Boughton to the canvas. Boughton beat the referee’s 10 count, but was put down for the second time with a Jacoby left hook to the body. The tournament’s “two knockdown rule” took effect, giving Jacoby the TKO victory at the 2:47 mark of the second round.

With a considerable amount of momentum behind him, Jacoby came out the aggressor in the tournament’s championship round, against previously undefeated Brian Collette (19-1, 16 KOs), who had scored a second round (:14) KO on Jeremy Freitag in the quarterfinal round of the event and a first round (1:29) TKO on Kyle Martin in the semifinal stage of the tournament.

Jacoby began connecting with a series of stiff jabs and a left hook to Collette’s body. With less than 10 seconds remaining in the opening round of action, Jacoby unloaded a barrage that put Collette on the mat face first, unable to recover. Jacoby was declared the victor of the bout by way of first round (3:00) KO.

Tyrone Spong vs. Remy Bonjasky

LONDON, England (Jan. 11, 2013) – Tickets, priced from £45, for the highly-anticipated GLORY 5 London: Spong vs. Bonjasky star-studded kickboxing event, taking place at ExCeL Arena on Saturday, March 23.

Headlined by a heavyweight showdown between superstars Remy Bonjasky (77-15, 40 KO’s) and Tyrone Spong (68-6-1 42 KO’s), the first-ever GLORY show in the UK brings together a host of additional icons for the most stacked kickboxing card ever to grace a British venue.

“When GLORY decided to stage a show in London, we knew we would have to put together a special card for the British capital. Fans have wanted to see a fight between Remy Bonjasky and Tyrone Spong for some time, but the two have never met in the ring – until now,” says Marcus Luer (GLORY CEO).

Bonjasky is an idol to fight fans around the world and Spong has been on a steady rise to the top – he’s a fighter that everybody is talking about right now. They are both incredible athletes with explosive power. Bonjasky’s flying knees and Spong’s hands are capable of stopping a fight in an instant. Don’t blink.”

Known as ‘The Flying Gentleman’, the 1.93 meter/6-foot-3, 108 kilogram/238 pound Bonjasky is a household name among kickboxing fans. His illustrious career has seen him win numerous top honors, including three K-1 Grand Prix championships, but this will be the first time that British fans have the opportunity to see him fight live.

One of the most athletic fighters ever to step into the ring, Bonjasky has provided some of the most enduring images of the sport with his flying knee attacks and wide range of dynamic kicks. Among his career achievements are wins over superstar rivals Badr Hari, Peter Aerts, Alistair Overeem and Jerome LeBanner.

Like Bonjasky, Spong, a native of Amsterdam who recently relocated to Boca Raton, Fla. to train with the famed ‘Blackzilians’ fight squad, is a stellar athlete. The 1.88 meter/6-foot-2, 103.5 kilogram/228 pound Spong started his career as a middleweight and has retained his speed and fluidity while gradually moving up to heavyweight.

With explosive power in his hands, nearly two-thirds of Spong’s wins have been by stoppage, including his June KO of the legendary Aerts, also a three-time winner of the old K-1 Grand Prix tournament series. Prior to moving up to heavyweight, Spong held the light-heavyweight (95 kilograms/210 pounds) title in top European organization It’s Showtime, which GLORY purchased in October 2012.

Jordan Watson (29-5-1, 14 KO’s) and Liam Harrison (67-13-2, 38 KO’s), two of the best kickboxers the UK has ever produced, will both see action on the card. Hailing from the Bad Company gym in Leeds, England, they have fought all over the world and have been among the few foreigners to find success in the fighting rings of Thailand.

Faces Harrison, Mosab Amrani “JAGUAR” (48-7-4, 14 KO’s), a Dutch-Moroccan fighter who combines ferocity with exceptional technicality, in a featherweight bout (65 kilograms/143 pounds). Amrani’s skills will provide the toughest test of Harrison’s career to date. Watson faces an equally tough test in the shape of Australia’s Steve Moxon “STONE COLD” (29-4-1, 16 KO’s), a KO machine with a sky-high finishing ratio, in a lightweight contest in other action on the star-studded, 11-bout GLORY 5 London kickboxing card, all-time great

Albert Kraus (66-16-3, 39 KO’s), winner of the first ever K-1 MAX tournament, will face the sensational Andy Ristie (43-2, 16 KO’s) in a bout that will help determine a top lightweight (70 kilograms/154 pounds) contender.

Light-heavyweight (95 kilograms/209 pounds) Bonjasky protégé Danyo Ilunga (41-4, 34 KOs) will make his UK debut against top French talent and fellow power striker Stephane Susperregui (32-4-1, 27 KOs) in a fight that is very unlikely to go the distance
