Video: Behind the Scenes of Glory 22 by Benini Stephane

I was lucky enough to actually be behind the scenes at Glory 22 in Lille so watching this video made by Benini Stephane just brought back the intensity in Stade Pierre-Mauroy that evening. It was a beautiful venue and Glory did a great job dealing with its size. Each dressing room only had about 4 fighters in it, and they were chosen appropriately according to when they were fighting so that everyone had time and space to warm up.

Stephane has made a black and white and a color version of the video and he really captured some wonderful moments.

Tyrone Spong Contending for BKB Heavyweight Championship on June 27th

In an interesting twist of fate Tyrone Spong, the former GLORY and K-1 fighter, will be competing in one of the more odd combat sports amalgamations on June 27th. Spong will be competing against Julian Pollard in BKB -- Big Knockout Boxing -- in Las Vegas for the BKB Heavyweight Championship. If you've somehow missed out on the whole BKB thing over the past year or so it is an organization based out of Las Vegas holding boxing events inside of a "pit" that forces the action.

Think the YAMMA pit and you'll get a solid idea of what it's all about. There are sensors in the gloves of each fighter as well that tells the viewers just how hard and fast the punches are being thrown. Due to the variables in the rules these fights aren't exactly tallied up on BoxRec like most fights are, but it does lead to entertaining bouts. The winner of the fight receives a $30,000 bonus and Spong's asking price for fights is usually pretty high.

While this isn't exactly Spong launching an American boxing career, it could be a good stepping stone to doing so.

Video: Robin Van Roosmalen vs. Steve Moxon for Happy Hearts Fund.

We had been waiting to see this video of Glory lightweight champion Robin van Roosmalen vs "Stone Cold" Steve Moxon which took place on June 3rd in New York. This was a charity black tie event for the Happy Hearts Fund, as you can see by the poster the co-main event featured Pierre Andurand, one of Glory's biggest shareholders. I personally think its really great of Pierre to get in the ring and try at least one fight, it really shows that he is a huge kickboxing fan and just an overall good guy, maybe we will get to see that video soon.

Van Roosmalen vs Moxon was a much more competitive fight than I had anticipated considering Moxon has been a little bit off his game lately. Moxon fought really well and showed great head movement and footwork avoiding Robin's hooks early. Eventually Robin started with the leg kicks and that's when the tide changed in the Glory champions favor. This was just a very fun fight to watch with two very similar style fighters.
