Hamburg Pressemitteilung 18.02.2015

Die schlechte Nachricht für die Berliner Boxsportfreunde zuerst: Der Hauptkampf der Veranstaltung am 6. März in der Spandauer Bruno-Gehrke-Halle zwischen Karo Murt und Benjamin Simon muss verschoben werden. Grund: Karo Murat hat sich im Training eine schwere Schulterverletzung zugegezogen, muss auf ärztliche Anordnung hin pausieren.

Dazu Veranstalter Erol Ceylan: „Zum Glück ist es kein Muskelriss. Aber die Schmerzen sind so stark, dass Karo die linke Schulter überhaupt nicht belasten kann. Boxen ist also unmöglich. Aber wir werden diesen Berliner Knaller nachholen. Auf meiner nächsten Veranstaltung in der Hauptstadt, das wird in zwei, drei Monaten sein, wird dieses Duell dann endlich steigen!“

Und jetzt die gute Nachricht: Tyrone Spong, K1-Superstar aus den USA, wird am 6.März in Berlin sein Debut als Boxprofi geben. Wer gegen den schlagstarken Schwergewichtler in den Ring steigen wird, ist allerdings noch nicht entschieden. EC-Boss Ceylan: „Wir verhandeln zurzeit mit Özcan Cetinkaya aus Kassel und mit Alexander Ustinov. Auf keinen Fall werden wir dem Knockouter aus Miami Fallobst vorsetzen.“

Eurosport wird die Boxpremiere des US-Stars ebenso live übertragen wie drei weitere Hauptkämpfe.

In dem Spandauer 12-Kämpfe-Programm werden voraussichtlich fünf Berliner in den Ring steigen. Schwergewicht: Sinan Baran, Cruiser: Varol Vekiluglo und Lars Buchholz, Halbschwer: Leo Tschoula, Feder: Adnan Özcoban.

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.

Andrew Whitaker named new GLORY CEO

Glory World Series-news

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 


 
 

SINGAPORE (Feb. 5, 2013) – Glory Sports International, the parent company of the world’s new premiere kickboxing league, GLORY World Series, today announced the appointment of former WWE Executive VP Andrew Whitaker to the position of global CEO of Glory Sports International.

We are excited that Andrew has agreed to assume the leadership mantel at GLORY in the pivotal role of CEO, on the front lines of our fast-growing organization,” said GLORY Sports International Chairman, co-founder, and award-winning hedge fund investor Pierre Andurand. “Andrew’s breadth of global experience in the media space is a tremendous asset to GLORY’s day-to-day business.”

Andrew joining as CEO is an important milestone in the development of GLORY as a company and kickboxing as a sport. We’ve had an incredible first year – we have over 40 of the world’s top kickboxing athletes signed to us exclusively, we’ve staged four amazing events, achieved TV distribution in 200 countries and trended No. 1 globally on Twitter on New Year’s Eve 2012 – GLORY and kickboxing are for real. As we start a new season in 2013, we have a calendar of over 10 events on 3 continents, an active global standard for athlete rankings, and we are rolling out a successful global format for kickboxing tournaments with our Grand Slams, Slams and Road to GLORY events. In addition, we are fully committed to entering the US market, and we are delighted Andrew has joined GLORY to oversee all this growth.”

Marcus Luer, co-founder of Glory Sports International, who has spearheaded GLORY’s rapid global expansion as interim-CEO over the last year since its inception, will resume the title Managing Director, allowing him to drive many of GLORY’s initiatives in Asia where he continues as CEO and founder of Asia’s leading, full-service sports marketing agency, TSA.

At the same time,” Andurand continued, “this move will free up Marcus to focus on building the GLORY brand in the territories where his experience and business relationships are greatest.”

Whitaker will be spearheading the opening of a new GLORY office in the tri-state region of the United States.

I am looking forward to taking a hands-on approach to driving the growth of what I have believed, for months, is an incredible combat sports entertainment product with tremendous global appeal,” said Whitaker, who previously served on the GLORY Sports International Board of Directors as Non-Executive Director.

Our kickboxing rules distinguish our sport by requiring elite athleticism, skill, and honor, from GLORY kickboxers, and produce some of the most exciting knockouts ever seen in combat sports. Our martial artists define the word ‘warrior,’, and our superb level of production makes our live events one of the most fan-friendly entertainment experiences in the world. GLORY has already redefined the standard for kickboxing, and has all the elements necessary to become a major player in the global sports industry,” continued Whitaker.

I look forward to working with Andrew again and continuing our successful partnership which began over 10 years ago while he was with WWE. Together, we ushered the wrestling brand into Asia,” said Luer. “GLORY is truly a global product now, which operates on a 24/7 basis with events and offices across three different continents – the U.S., Europe, and Asia.”

Prior to joining GLORY Sports International, Whitaker was the Managing Partner of Kings Highway Media, a global brand and media distribution advisory that serves sports and entertainment IP rightsholders, private equity and venture capital.

Whitaker also served as the Executive Vice President of International for NYSE-listed WWE Inc. where he was responsible for establishing and growing the leading professional wrestling entertainment company’s business via sales, marketing, promotion and public and government relations across television, digital media, live events, licensing and PPV/VOD.

Last week, GLORY debuted its new ROAD TO GLORY development fight series uniquely designed to identify and develop future kickboxing champions and other superstars in the U.S. and elsewhere, with an eight-man light heavyweight tournament (209 pounds/95 kilograms) at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Tulsa, Okla. On Saturday, Feb. 9, the ROAD TO GLORY series heads to Hollywood Park Casino in Los Angeles, Calif. with an eight-man middleweight (187 pounds/85 kilograms) tournament.

The next stop for GLORY’s championship series, home to the world’s greatest kickboxers, will be Excel Arena in London, England, where a stacked fight card, headlined by a heavyweight showdown between superstar Tyrone KING OF THE RING Spong (68-6-1 42 KO’s) and decorated, all-time great Remy THE FLYING GENTLEMAN Bonjasky (77-15, 40 KO’s), will take place on Saturday, March 23.

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

PETER AERTS’ final fight in the Low Countries ended in disappointment as the Dutch heavyweight legend suffered a third round stoppage defeat to Tyrone Spong in Brussels.

Aerts received a fitting standing ovation for his ring walk as the main atttraction on IT’S SHOWTIME editions 57 and 58 – sponsored by Music Hall and BFN Group – at Forest National.

But victory escaped him on a night when IT’S SHOWTIME announced the groundbreaking news they have sold their company to Glory as Spong recovered from a slow start to drop him with a right hook which landed high to the side of the head.

Aerts rose at the count of six but referee Joop Ubeda waved the contest off after deciding the Dutch Lumberjack was not in a fit state to fight on.

“I had the feeling I could continue,” said Aerts after the fight. “It was the last round and there was maybe one minute left.

“I think I was ahead on points at the time, and in the second round I caught him and he was dizzy.

“Of course it’s not the result I wanted, but I asked straight after for a rematch and hopefully it can be arranged.”

Aerts outworked a sluggish Spong in the first round despite being on the back foot for most of it, although the second session was a lot more competitive.

Spong stepped on the gas in the third and landed a right to the chin which froze Aerts on the spot, then delivered the decisive blow after backing him to the ropes near a neutral corner.

Andy Souwer won widely on points to end Chris Ngimbi’s reign as the IT’S SHOWTIME 70kg MAX champion, although one judge bizarrely scored the five-round fight a draw.

Ngimbi held his own in the first round but Souwer held all of the aces after that, proving the more active and diverse of the two with boxing combinations, knees and low and high kicks.

“I think maybe one round was even and I took every other round, even though one judge didn’t agree,” Souwer said.

“But I don’t care about that , I won and never got into problems. It’s another title for my two sons.”

In the night’s other title fight, Danyo Ilunga retained the IT’S SHOWTIME 95kg MAX belt on points after an entertaining battle with Belgian Filip Verlinden.

Verlinden staggered the defending champion with a first round knee but Ilunga recovered quickly, setting a high tempo with his hands.

Tall and rangy, Verlinden kept pitching in and the crowd got right into the action as he clipped Ilunga with a high kick and the pair went toe to toe in a rousing finale.

Heavyweights banged it out in three of the most enthralling fights, with Daniel Ghita thrilling the Belgian audience with a two-round annihilation of Bosnia’s brave Dzevad Poturak.

Poturak came to fight but Ghita showed exactly why many kicboxing fans think he is the best big man in the world right now with a ruthless display of body kicking.

The Romanian dropped Poturak twice in the opening round with sickening rib kicks and put him down for the count with another booming shin to the midsection.

Ghita’s former teammate Mourad Bouzidi scored the most dramatic single-shot finish of the night – a gruesome second round broken nose stoppage of Rustemi Kreshnik.

New father Bouzidi had lost to Kreshnik previously but made amends big time as the Albanian switch hitter ducked into a right knee which not only flattened his nose, but spread it in about five different directions as well.

Much-improved Rico Verhoeven showed his narrow points win in Romania over Hesdy Gerges was no fluke as he floored the former IT’S SHOWTIME super heavyweight champion with a first round right hand on the way to a unanimous points victory.

Gerges suffered a suspected broken right hand at the end of the second round and had to use his left exclusively in the third.

The last time Robin van Roosmalen fought at Forest National he left the arena as the Fast and Furious tournament champion after three dynamic performances.

But he was on on the wrong end of an upset on this occasion as late replacement Hafid El Boustati ripped open his left eye with a second round knee, forcing a stoppage on the ringside doctor’s advice.

Armenia’s Marat Grigorian produced one of the evening’s most dynamic performances as he outscored Moroccan prospect Aziz Kallah.

Kallah had to be respected in the first round as he let fly with jumping knees, but Grigorian kept the pace and pressure high as he raced away after that, leaving Kallah marked up under his left eye.

Surinam’s Andy Ristie is one of the best up and coming fighters in the 70kg division and supplied further evidence of his potential with a first round mugging of Samir Djabba.

Ristie wasted no time in dropping bombs from all angles on the Frenchman and the fight was all over in about a minute.

Other main card results: Sonny Dagraed beat Fatih Ozkan, points; Duoli Chen beat Vahap Ozdemir points; Robbie Hageman beat Mandela Antone, points.
Pre-programme results – Cankurtaranoglu Cenk beat Vincent Gloris, points; Kirk Krouba beat Bertran Bertoni, third round retirement; Thomas Vanneste beat Yassine Bouanan, tko 2; Cedric de Keirsmaecker beat Perego Leftero, tko 2; Jahfarr Wilnis beat Sam Tevette, ko 3.

ON the Glory deal, IT’S SHOWTIME CEO Simon Rutz said: “For many years our companies have been fighting each other, having a war of words.

“War, most of the time, is never good. The war stops now. We have sold our company to Glory.

“The reson why is that I strongly believe that Glory is the future. Glory has all of the elements to be number one in the world fighting business.

“Everybody wants to see the best fighters in the world in one team, and now we have it.

“It wasn’t good that we had two competing organisations – 50% of the fighters fighting here, 50% there.

“Now we have the best fighters and the best promoters in the world, and the best audience.

“What was also important was that we found good investors, and now we have that.

“I understand that some people will be wondering what is going on with all of this news.

“But believe me, this is the biggest step in kickboxing history.

“From this moment on, we will see the best fighters fighting each other and not in competition.

“I’m really proud that we can form what I believe will be the best company in world kickboxing history.”

Bas Boon, president of Glory Sports and Golden Glory, added: “We have the best fighters, period. Glory will set a new standard in the kickboxing world.

“I have to especially thank Pierre Andrade, the chairman of investors for making all of this possible.

“Watch out for some spectacular fights in future.”

The number 1 heavyweight in the world will fight on June 30 in Brussels, Belgium! Also on the fight card: Peter Aerts vs Tyrone Spong, world title fight 70kg between Andy Souwer and champ Chris Ngimbi, world title fight 95kg max between Filip Verlinden and champ Danyo Ilunga and many many more.
 
 
       PRESS RELEASE 20.06.2012
 
In comparison to the fight card we have previously announced for our upcoming event ‚Music Hall & BFN Group present IT’S SHOWTIME 57 & 58‘ on June 30 in Brussels, Belgium, some changes have been made. Most of the dropouts were due to injuries or because fighters didn’t get medical clearance as a result of knockout losses in the past weeks.
 
Jerome Le Banner won’t fight against Rustemi Kreshnik, despite the fact that there was an agreement for this fight, even by Jerome Le Banner himself. However, we have enough of the antics of Team Le Banner and we wish him and his seconds all the best. Rustemi Kreshnik will now face Mourad Bouzidi. Bouzidi defeated Kreshnik by medical intervention in 2010, so Kreshnik gets the change to avenge his loss, with the support of his home crowd.
 
The current number 1 heavyweight in the world, Daniel Ghita, will square off with Dzevad Poturak in Brussels. These fighters have gone to war twice and this rubber match will decide who scores the 2-1 in his favor. Anyone who has seen their two previous fights knows that these were real slugfests.
 
Hafid El Boustati will replace Harut Grigorian. Grigorian didn’t get clearance to fight after his knockout loss in Madrid, May 28. El Boustati is in amazing shape and Robin van Roosmalen will have to bring his A-game to score a victory.
 
There will be 2 IT’S SHOWTIME world title fights on the June 30 card. Filip Verlinden will try to dethrone Danyo Ilunga in the world title fight for the 95kg max belt. Chris Ngimbi will defend his world title in the 70kg max weight division against Andy Souwer.
 
Peter Aerts has been focusing on his fight against Tyrone Spong for the past months. This fight already promises to be a historical fight between the old and the new generation. Despite that this will be the last fight of Peter Aerts in the Benelux, Tyrone Spong will try anything that’s necessary to spoil Aerts’ party.
 
PRESS RELEASE (25.04.2012)
 
Peter Aerts: „I will come to Brussels to knock Spong out“. Nobody missed the fact that Music Hall & BFN Group present IT’S SHOWTIME 57 & 58 will take place on June 30 in Forest National. None other than the living legend PETER „LUMBERJACK“ AERTS will fight his last match for the Benelux fans. Aerts really didn’t want an easy fight for this retirement as he chose TYRONE SPONG.
 
We visited Aerts in his new K1-Aerts-Dojo and asked him about his upcoming fight with TYRONE Spong. Click here to watch the entire interview. Don’t forget to subscribe to our new YouTube channel and make sure you don’t miss a thing!
