GLORY Light Heavyweight Grand Prix Draw Results

GLORY Fight Card Finalized for June 8th Event

With the draw completed, GLORY has finalized the fight card for the June 8th event. Returning to the ring after a 1-year doping suspension, Murat Aygun (32-3, 8 KO) will face Romanian rising star Ionut Iancu (28-9, 10 KO) in the co-main event of the evening.

Also featured in the event is a Middleweight bout between French prospect Ramy Deghir (6-1, 1 KO) and veteran Iliass Hammouche (34-6, 7 KO). Additionally, the Welterweight clash between Soufian Abdelkalek (4-2-1, 2 KO) and Ilyass Chakir (16-4, 6 KO) will round out the prelims, along with the reserve fight for the Grand Prix.


Reigning champion Tarik Khbabez (50-10-1, 28 KO) took the first ball and challenged “our French boy” Pascal Toure (20-6, 7 KO). Toure, like all other challenged fighters that Friday afternoon, accepted the fight. Second up to challenge someone was Stefan Latescu (17-2, 8 KO), who called out #1 ranked Donegi Abena (27-10, 7 KO). On the other side of the bracket, Sergej Maslobojev (36-6, 21 KO) will fulfill his longtime wish to fight one of the Stoica brothers as he challenged Bogdan Stoica (58-13, 40 KO). That automatically matched Ibrahim El Bouni (41-9-1, 22 KO) and Bahram Rajabzadeh (67-2, 59 KO) to face off in the last quarter-final. GLORY’s 11th visit to the Rotterdam Ahoy will be kicked off by the reserve bout between Mohamed Amine (29-7, 16 KO) and debutant Cem Caceres (15-1, 12 KO).
