Sergei Kharitonov was originally supposed to fight Semmy Schilt on the May 26 GLORY card in Stockholm, Sweden. There was a last minute change, and Errol Zimmerman ended up getting the fight, which is for the GLORY Heavyweight title. Sergei remained on the card though, and now has an opponent.
Kharitonov will be fighting Tony Lopez, but it will be an MMA fight. It's an interesting turn of events, as it looked like Kharitonov would be sticking to K-1 rules with GLORY centering their promotion around kickboxing. GLORY also has a heavyweight kickboxing tournament coming up this year which he'll be in. He recently knocked out Mark Miller in the first round at GLORY's March 23 event.
GLORY's event on May 26 in Stockholm, Sweden features the "First 16" of the 70kg tournament where a $300 000 prize is waiting for the winner. Featured are Giorgio Petrosyan, Robin van Roosmalen and Yoshihiro Sato to name a few and in super fights, Gokhan Saki will also be fighting. Click here for the full fight card.
