Road to Glory UK 3 announces Giannis Skordilis in 8-man tournament and more updates

Road to Glory UK 3 promoter, Dean Sugden, announced today that Giannis Skordilis is officially in the 70kg 8-man tournament on October 7, 2017 at, the Grantham Meres Leisure Centre. “Greekboy” is the fourth contestant to be announced in the tournament which, also features: Alex Bublea, Vinny Church and William Goldie-Galloway.

Interestingly, Bublea and Skordilis have previous with one another, having clashed twice before. Both fighters are currently tied at one victory each against each other and a potential trilogy between the two could now happen in the coming months, depending on how both are drawn for the quarter-finals.

The overall match-ups for the quarter-finals are yet to be confirmed and another, Road to Glory UK 3 announcement is expected in due course including, further details as to who, the remaining four contestants are. Both the winner and runner-up of the Road to Glory UK tournament, will secure themselves with a two-fight contract with GLORY Kickboxing.

Previously, Mo Abdurahman defeated Bailey Sugden in the final of, the Road to Glory UK 2 tournament and since then both have made their GLORY debuts at GLORY 43 New York; and Adrian Maxim was also rewarded with a GLORY contract by, GLORY’s Managing Sports Director, Cor Hemmers, after losing a very close (and controversial) decision to Sugden in the semi-finals.

However, any lingering doubts over Sugden’s credentials were put to bed in emphatic fashion with an ‘excellent performance’ against, Arthur Sorsor at GLORY 43 SuperFight Series, winning via unanimous decision.

Unfortunately, Abdurahman would lose his GLORY debut in a 4-man tournament against (the eventual tournament winner), Kevin Vannostrand by round one KO in a lively but short-lived affair. Whilst Maxim is expected to feature on a main card GLORY event in the near future.

Nevertheless, Bailey Sugden is expected to feature on the Road to Glory UK 3 fight card and an opponent for the GLORY featherweight will no doubt be announced soon enough too.

K1ANOOP will report again once the fight card has been updated.
