Jamie Bates vs. Tommy King Preview, Rico Verhoeven Carries the Brits at GLORY 54

Jamie Bates vs. Tommy King is the first semi-final of the GLORY 54 welterweight tournament in what will be a clash between two British kickboxers; the event is headlined by Rico Verhoeven vs. Mladen Brestovac rematch and British sports journalist, Andreas Georgiou and K1ANOOP preview this much anticipated clash of styles.

The winner of Jamie Bates vs Tommy King will face the winner of, Mark Timms vs. Dawid Blaszke of the second semi-final on the night in the tournament final at GLORY 54 Birmingham.

The British fighters generally could do with much bigger names fights across all three fight cards at GLORY 54 Birmingham and it could be argued that GLORY heavyweight champion, Rico Verhoeven’s presence on the night, carries the Brits at GLORY 54 but do not underestimate the British kickboxing talent on display on June 2 at the Genting Arena.
