Russian sensation Vladislav “Diamond” Tuinov will make his GLORY debut at GLORY 66 on 22 June in Paris, the fighter announced today on social media.
The 21-year-old Orel, Russian Federation native meets Michael Palandre of France.
Tuinov, a champion in the W5 organization and Kunlun Fight veteran, signed with GLORY a few months ago, and his debut has been anticipated by fans of K-1 rules fighting all over the world.
He’ll be facing a French opponent who’s unbeaten in GLORY competition.
Palandre has won both his previous bouts in GLORY. He defeated Mohamed Soumah by second-round stoppage at GLORY 60 in Lyon last October, then outpointed Gueric Billet via split decision at GLORY 64 in Strasbourg.
GLORY 66 takes place on 22 June at the Zenith Paris, and is headlined by three world title fights featuring reigning champions Cedric Doumbe, Artem Vakhitov, and Anissa Meksen.
