The world’s premier kickboxing league, GLORY is preparing one of the biggest showdowns in 2019. The organization’s next event will be held in Utrecht, Holland at May 17 and the two main events will be championship fights.
The lightweight champion Sitthichai Sitsongpeenong (122-30-5) will make his 7th title defense against a familiar foe – Marat Grigorian (60-11-1). This will be Marat’s third chance to snatch the title from the 27-year-old Thai who captured the title back in 2016. The first two title fights between the two ended in favor of Sitsongpeenong.
The other main event of the evening is for the middleweight championship. The Brazilian champ Alex Pereira (29-6-0) will be defending his belt for the 4th time since he captured the throne back in 2017. This time his adversary will be Netherland’s Jason Wilnis (31-9-1).
Currently the 28-year-old Wilnis is ranked #3 in the middleweight division.
