One of the top heavyweights of the GLORY stable – Jamal Ben Saddik (35-7) has signed a new long-term deal with the world’s premier kickboxing league.
The news was confirmed by GLORY themselves, stating that it’s a multi-fight deal.
Here’s what the 29-year-old Saddik had to say:
“I’ve always loved taking on challenges in life, and I am very happy my fans will be able to see me fight again after a year of absence in the fight game. I am very grateful to GLORY for what they did for my career, and I am happy we’re moving forward and that I will be able to fight on such a platform,” remarked Ben Saddik.

“It’s always been very important for me to give the fans the biggest fights and the most important fights, and that’s what we have accomplished today. I promise you I will always keep on fighting for that.”
Jamal made his GLORY debut back in 2012 at GLORY 2. He competed for the heavyweight crown in 2017 when Rico Verhoeven TKO’d him in the last round. Now “Goliath” has the chance to redeem himself, as the pair are set to face once again in 2020 for the GLORY heavyweight championship.
