The world's premiere kickboxing league brings its unique brand of fighting to the Theater at Madison Square Garden Saturday November 23rd! The adrenalin-inducing GLORY 12 event features a championship lightweight tournament that will have fight fans on the edge of their seats.
The line-up for the GLORY 12 NEW YORK four-man Lightweight World Championship Tournament has been confirmed.
Having taken the world #1 ranking spot following his victory at GLORY 10, the Dutch powerhouse Robin Van Roosmalen (30-5, 19 KO’s) enters the tournament as the top seed. He faces karate stylist Davit Kiria (21-8, 6 KO’s), who climbed to #3 in the rankings after also winning his fight at GLORY 10.
Pound-for-pound greatest Giorgio Petrosyan (78-1-1, 35 KO’s), is now #2 in the rankings and he faces Andy ‘The Machine’ Riste (39-3-1, 19 KO’s), ranked at #4. Petrosyan has just one loss on his record and Ristie has been on a tear lately and is undefeated in GLORY.
The winner of the tournament will emerge as the GLORY Lightweight Tournament Champion and will scoop a cash prize of $150,000.
“Petrosyan is noted for his technical perfection, Van Roosmalen for his power, Kiria for his ferocity and Ristie for his dangerous unorthodoxy. This is an explosive mixture and guarantees that the GLORY 12 tournament will be among the most exciting events we have ever staged,” says GLORY Sports International CEO Andrew Whitaker.
