“Greekboy” Returns at MTGP London Event in April

Greekboy Celebrates Win

“Road to Glory 2” tournament champion Giannis “Greekboy” Skordilis will return to the ring at the Muay Thai Grand Prix event on April 6 in London. Skordilis made the announcement on social media today.

Skordilis is the top ranked male fighter at 70 kg under K-1 rules in the United Kingdom. In October 2017, “Greekboy” earned a two-fight contract with the GLORY organization when he won the Road to Glory 2 tournament. Skordilis defeated Joe Johnson and Alex Bublea by TKO in the quarterfinal and semifinal rounds, then won a unanimous decision over Sam Omomogbe in the final. A university student, Skordilis was unable to compete at the last GLORY event in England because he was busy with final exams.

Nicola Barke, a Storm Gym teammate of Skordilis, is also scheduled for action at the MTGP event. Barke had an impressive campaign in 2018. The kickboxing banker won a four-woman tournament to earn a China fight contract at SFS VI in June. In September, Barke captured her first title with a unanimous verdict against Claire Clements for the WKO British K-1 rules title.

Muay Thai Grand Prix (MTGP) is one of Britain’s leading promotions, and recently announced its shows will be streamed on UFC Fight Pass beginning in April.
