The entire GLORY 45 SuperFight Series main card was announced earlier today and will be headlined by, Hesdy Gerges vs. Mladen Brestovac at the Sporthallen Zuid, Amsterdam on September 30, 2017.
Jason Wilnis vs. Yousri Belgaroui will now co-headline the event which, is now finalised by, the pair of top 10 ranked GLORY heavyweights; Gerges (50-18-1) is coming off a recent victory over Tomas Hron at GLORY 41 Den Bosch. Whilst Brestovac (53-12-1) was last seen in a GLORY ring being dominated by, Benjamin Adegbuyi in the 4-man contender tournament final at GLORY 35 Nice.
In the spirit of Throwback Thursday we revisit, Nieky Holzken vs. Yoann Kongolo which, headlined GLORY 29 Copenhagen. Holzken would win by decision but the fight was one of the most intense and entertaining title defences of the Holzken era as welterweight champion in GLORY Kickboxing.
It was announced earlier this week that both fighters will rematch one another as the co-main event of, GLORY 45 Amsterdam and the main event will be, Robin van Roosemalen vs. Serhiy Adamchuk; the latter challenging van Roosmalen for the GLORY featherweight title on September 30, 2017. As well as Jason Wilnis vs. Yousri Belgaroui headlining GLORY 45 SuperFight Series.
Holzken is no longer the GLORY welterweight champion having lost to Cedric Doumbe at GLORY Collision and failing to avenge that loss in their rematch at GLORY 42 Paris. On that same night, Kongolo defeated Yohan Lidon and declared that he wanted to rematch “real fighter” Nieky Holzken again.
Having lost twice in-a-row for the first time in seven years, has Holzken’s fear factor that us to strike fear into hearts of most mortals, diminished and will the tide have finally turned enough in favour of Kongolo, by the time these two adversaries clash once more?
Robin van Roosmalen will defend his GLORY featherweight title against Serhiy Adamchuck in the headline bout of GLORY 45 Amsterdam on September 30, 2017 at the Sporthallen Zuid.
As reported after Adamchuck defeated Dylan Salvador at GLORY 41 Den Bosch, in a fight that was upgraded to a title eliminator as authorised by GLORY Managinng Sports Director, Cor Hemmers; Adamchuck will be making another direct assault on the championship having lost the title to Gabriel Varga at GLORY 32 Virgina in his second title defence.
Nieky Holzken vs. Yoann Kongolo will rematch one another in the co-main event; a much anticipated clash that Kongolo had recently wished for after he defeated Yohan Lidon at GLORY 42 Paris.
Holzken will be looking to make a statement against Kongolo with whom he beat by decision in a close and exciting fight at GLORY 29 Copenhagen; especially since he’s coming off two losses in-a-row to current welterweight champion, Cedric Doumbe.
A light-heavyweight contender tournament competes the remainder of the card with, Imad Hadar vs. Manny Mancha and Michael Duut against an opponent to be confirmed, making up the two semi-finals of the 4-man tournament.
