Yesterday we posted the "finalized" fight card for GLORY 5 London, which takes place this Saturday, March 23 in London, England at the ExCel Arena. Well, there's been another change to the card at the last minute.
Maxim Vorovski, who as of yesterday was set to face Nicola Gallo in a 77kg fight, has had to withdraw due to health issues. Taking his place will be his Golden Glory teammate, Jonatan Oliveira.
The fight was originally Maxim Vorovski vs. Duoli Chen. Chen just recently was out of the fight and then Nicola Gallo took his place. Vorovski also had to pull out at the last minute last year when he was set to fight Sanny Dahlbeck at GLORY in Stockholm, due to not being able to make the then weight of 70kg.
Oliveira, originally from Brazil, now trains out of Golden Glory in the Netherlands. He was also scheduled to fight on GLORY 6 Istanbul on April 6 against Berneung Topkingboxing, but we'll have to see what happens to that after his fight this weekend.
