Glory Kickboxing announced it has signed former Enfusion heavyweight champion Luis Tavares to a contract. Tavares will compete for Glory in its light heavyweight (95 kg/209 lb) division.
A day earlier, Enfusion announced that Tavares was vacating his belt and moving down in weight from heavyweight to the 95 kg weight category. Because Enfusion currently lacks a “”strong enough” roster at that weight, it gave Tavares permission to compete for another promotion for 2 years.
Tavares didn’t pull any punches in his first remarks to his fellow Glory light heavyweights.
“I have a message for all the fighters in Glory in the light heavyweight division. You can run but you can’t hide,” Tavares said,before vowing to give Glory light heavyweight king Artem Vakhitov “a life changing experience.”
