Glory 17 Featherweight Contender Tournament: Shane Oblonsky Hype Video

  • Published in Glory

Shane Oblonksy will be entering the Glory ring for the first time on June 21st to fight for the the featherweight contender belt. Not only will this be Oblonsky's first time in the Glory ring, but also his first tournament. He is coming into this four man tournament as one of the least experienced with 8 wins and 2 losses as a professional. He did beat Malaipet Sasiprapa who has over 179 fights in March of this year, which shows he can deal with crafty veterans. Oblonsky's first fight will be against the Brazilian Marcus Vinicius. Their professional records are almost identical but Vinicius has been on the Glory stage before against the very dangerous and #1 ranked Mosab Amrani where he lost by decision.

Oblonsky has shown he has big power for this weight class, so aslong as the Californian does not let the pressure of the big stage get to him and does not get too wild, i feel he can give any of Glory's featherweights a great fight.

Vinny Shoreman Hosting K-1 Open Tryouts

  • Published in K-1

ShoremanWhen Glory purchased It's Showtime, it did mean that the Kickboxing world was becoming partially united once again, but for commentators Vinny "Showtime" Shoreman and Kieran Keddle, it meant that their positions might be in a bit of limbo. We've been petitioning on Twitter for Shoreman and Keddle to keep their jobs, but it looks like we might be seeing them again soon, Shoreman at least. Of course, they will be doing the It's Showtime event in Tenerife, Spain, but on top of that, Vinny Shoreman will be in Los Angeles for K-1's Open Tryouts, serving as the host.

Sadly, Kieran was busy, but having Vinny there shows that K-1 is looking to secure some of the people that fans know and love. Shoreman is one of the few commentators in the sport whose pure love and passion for the sport comes across in every single event, much like Michael "The Voice" Schiavello. We very much look forward to hearing Shoreman at future events and hope that if he does begin working for K-1, that Kieran Keddle will join him as well, as they make for a very good team that many have grown very accustomed to and grown to love.

Eduard Irimia Explains that SUPERKOMBAT Fighters Can Fight for Anyone

  • Published in Kickboxing

SuperKombat

SUPERKOMBAT has an interesting stable of fighters at its disposal, guys like Benjamin Adegbuyi, Bogdan and Andrei Stoica, Catalin Morosanu, Raul Catinas and Sebastien Ciobanu. While lots of promoters force fighters into exclusive contracts, Eduard Irimia would like to make it clear that fighters under the employ of SUPERKOMBAT are not held to those kinds of restrictions. In fact, he encourages fighters under the SK banner to gain experience outside of the SUPERKOMBAT organization.

In the article, which was posted to Romanian luptatorii.ro, Irimia talks about his "gentlemen's agreement" with Pierre Andurand and GLORY, stating that they are not rivals and that he would be happy to send some of his fighters to GLORY. There is also a brief mention that Irimia would allow fighters to fight for K-1 as well.

Inside Glory 19: Rico Verhoeven Vs Errol Zimmerman

  • Published in Glory

This video actually got me really excited for Glory 19 on Feb 6th. First of all both Errol Zimmerman and Rico Verhoeven look as though they are training very hard and are hungry for the Glory belt. Secondly, rubber matches are the best. Both men already know each other, they have beat each other once and now we find out who can adapt and overcome to win the 3rd fight. Last but not least, Mike Tyson is going to be watching which might sound like it doesn't make sense, or like its not a big deal to many people but you can tell by both these heavyweights excitement just to talk to Iron Mike how much it means to them, every fighter wants to win with Mike Tyson ringside.
