Pat Barry Out of GLORY 20 -- Featherweight Title Fight Moves to Main Card

For kickboxing fans there is some good news and some bad news regarding GLORY 20. The bad news is that Pat Barry vs. Mourad Bouzidi is officially off after Pat Barry suffered a hand injury while training for the upcoming fight. Bouzidi will still be on the GLORY 20 card but for now it looks like he'll be moved to the SuperFight Series undercard with a replacement opponent.

The good news is that the Featherweight Championship bout between Mosab Amrani and Gabriel Varga will no longer headline the SuperFight Series card and will instead be featured on the main card. That means that an astonishing two GLORY championships will be on the line for GLORY 20. The event, set to go down on April 3rd in Dubai, will air via tape delay on Spike TV that same evening.

GLORY has promised that Pat Barry will be booked on an upcoming card when he is healthy.

Video: Glory 20 Pre-fight Interviews with Mosab Amrani, Gabriel Varga, and Mourad Bouzidi

Glory has begun releasing the pre-fight interviews for Glory 20 in Dubai. First up is the Canadian Gabriel Varga, who also did an Exclusive Liverkick interview which will be coming soon. Naturally the next interview is with his opponent the Moroccan/Dutch Mosab Amrani. After listening to what they both had to say, I can't help but think of how exciting this fight is going to be, I always enjoy a clash of styles in a fight especially when it involves height as well. Only thing I wonder is who will the winner defend his belt against? I feel Glory will have to sign some new featherweights.

The latest interview is with Mourad Bouzidi who seems to have been in Dubai for quite a while already to prepare for this fight. There have been lots of videos posted of him training like a beast for this fight, I get the feeling he REALLY does not want to lose to Pat Barry.

2011 Fighter of the Year Peneak Sitnumnoi Joins the Evolve MMA Fight Team

Peneak Sitnumnoi who has won titles at Omnoi Stadium, Channel 7 Stadium and Lumpinee Stadium and was named the 2011 ‘Fighter of the Year’ is the latest Muay Thai legend to join Evolve MMA.

Originally from Phattalung, Peneak fought out of the Sing Patong camp in Phuket and is best remembered for beating Sam-A Gaiyanghadaogym in a 2012 bout at Lumpinee Stadium which decided who would win the Sports Writer’s ‘Fighter of the Year’ award, regarded as the single most prestigious honour in Muay Thai (see the fight here ).

That win would pave the way for Peneak to compete in marquee matchups with some of the biggest names in the sport including Saketdao Phetpayathai, Pakorn Sakyotin, Saeksan Or Kwanmuang and Kongsak Sitboonmee.

He was one of three Sing Patong fighters to simultaneously own titles at Lumpinee during a period when Peneak and his team mates Damien Alamos and Pentai Singpatong were all belt holders in their respective divisions at Bangkok’s most prestigious stadium.

Peneak has not been fighting as frequently of late but the 26 year old returned to Lumpinee last December and showed he still has what it takes to compete with the very best in the sport when he narrowly lost out to Muangthai PKSaenchaigym in a bout which won ‘Fight of the Night’ honours at the stadium’s big birthday show.

Peneak will be joining a team of trainers at Evolve MMA that also includes stellar names such as Namsaknoi Yudthagarngamtorn, Orono Wor Petchpun, Pornsaneh Sitmonchai and Saketdao Petpayathai.

Although Peneak is not retiring from competitive fighting it is unlikely he will be competing as regularly in the Bangkok stadiums but there is a possibility that he could follow in the footsteps of fellow former Lumpinee champion Dejdamrong Sor Amnuaysirichoke by trying his hand at MMA.
