Glory Kickboxing announced the winner of its “performance of the night” award for Glory 57. Glory 57 took place last Saturday August 25 in Shenzhen, China.
Not surprisingly, China’s Liu Xu won the award.
Liu, 20, defeated three opponents to win the Glory China 70 kg tournament. After edging Junchen Zhao by split decision, Xu’s superior stamina helped him earn a unanimous decision over Chao Wang. Not much seemed to separate the fighters after two rounds, and Liu had a clear advantage in the third.
In the finals, Liu won a split decision over Wensheng Zang. The youngster had to fight nine rounds total against three different opponents in order to get the tournament victory.
The humble Liu said he drew inspiration from his parents in winning the tournament.
