The GLORY 69 fight card is almost completed, with an opponent still to be announced for young Russian sensation Vlad “The Diamond” Tuinov.
GLORY 69 takes place on 12 October at the Castello Dusseldorf. It’s the promotion’s first event in Germany since December 2016 when Rico Verhoeven defeated Badr Hari at GLORY: Collision in the city of Oberhausen.
There are 14 bouts scheduled, and one would expect a couple of the bouts to be shifted to the GLORY 69 Superfight Series portion of the event.
Former Enfusion contender Ulric Bokeme makes his GLORY debut in a middleweight clash with former title challenger Yousri Belgaroui.
Also debuting is Australia’s Matthew Stevens. Stevens takes on Vincent Foschiani in a preliminary bout in the 70 kg weight category.
Yoann Kongolo returns to Glory after competing in professional boxing. Kongolo faces hard-hitting welterweight Dmitry Menshikov.
In the evening’s main event, newly-crowned lightweight champion Marat Grigorian makes his first defense versus second-ranked Tyjani Beztati.
