GLORY just announced their first big event of 2013, which will see them head to London, England on February 16.
Headlining the card will be Tyrone Spong vs. Remy Bonjasky, a fight that has been in the making for quite some time. Other match-ups announced so far are Jordan Watson taking on Steve Moxon and Liam Harrison fighting Mosab Amrani in Amrani’s return fight.
Spong vs. Bonjasky is a huge name fight, with both fighters being amongst the biggest names in kickboxing. Remy made his return this year, in October, when he took a very tough win over Anderson “Braddock” Silva at GLORY 2 Brussels on October 6. Spong recently tried his hand at MMA on November 3, coming away with a win at World Series of Fighting. Before that, Spong defeated Peter Aerts by way of third round stoppage at It’s Showtime on June 30.
Steve Moxon gets a tough test in his GLORY debut in Jordan Watson. Watson just made his GLORY debut at GLORY 3 Rome, taking a decision win over Mustapha Haida. What’s also very interesting is Liam Harrison being on the card. Liam primarily fights Muay Thai but has devastating low kicks and has destroyed pretty formidable opponents like Andrei Kulebin with them. Mosab Amrani has been out since November 2011 with a bad leg injury, but faces a stiff test in his return.
