Two more bouts were officially added to the GLORY 66 event taking place on 22 June at the Zenith Paris in Paris, France.
Former Enfusion champion and current GLORY light heavyweight contender Luis Tavares will compete in his second bout since returning to the promotion last year. Tavares meets France’s Stephane Susperregui.
Tavares (listed record of 60-7 with 22 KOs) made a successful return with a close decision win against Artur Gorlov at GLORY 62 in December. Some gave the edge to the Latvian, but the Rotterdam fighter got the nod in his hometown.
Susperregui (48-8-2, 28 KOs) is winless in two previous GLORY appearances. He was stopped by Danyo Ilunga back at GLORY 5, and lost a unanimous decision to number one ranked Donegi Abena at GLORY 60 last October. The French veteran has won world titles but hasn’t had much good fortune yet in GLORY.
Hamicha (37-2, 27 KOs) impressed last year in his GLORY debut with a stoppage win over tough Miles Simson.
The Moroccan sensation faces Adam Hadfield, the third-ranked UK 77 kg fighter in K-1 rules, according to the most recent rankings.
GLORY 66 is headlined by a “title fight triple” with reigning champions Cedric Doumbe, Artem Vakhitov, and Anissa Meksen all defending their crowns against high-ranking challengers.
