Swiss fighter Yoann Kongolo returns to kickboxing this Saturday. Kongolo, a former Glory Welterweight title challenger who hails from Switzerland, will face French veteran Yohan Lidon on the big Fight Night St. Tropez event in France.
Kongolo defeated Lidon by decision in his last Glory appearance at Glory 42 in Paris in June 2017. Since that time, he’s been focusing his attention on professional boxing, going 4-1 to move his record to 11-1 in boxing. Kongolo won a WBC International Silver title at light heavyweight, but suffered a majority decision defeat in his last boxing match.
Lidon has won two in a row since losing a controversial decision to Kamil Ruta at DSF Kickboxing Challenge 14. In his last bout, the Frenchman defeated Karim Benmansour by decision at the A-1 WGP event in Algeria.
