Road to GLORY USA gets started off in Tulsa, Oklahoma on February 1 but just a bit more than a week after that, another Road to GLORY tournament is being held on February 9 at the Hollywood Park Casino in Inglewood, California, just outside of Los Angeles.
The event is being put on by WCK Muay Thai under veteran promoter Dennis Warner and features the Road to GLORY 85kg eight man, one night tournament, with the winner advancing to fight on the big GLORY shows and getting $20 000. The lineup for the tournament was just announced and is as follows:
Van Wyk Povey
Edgar Del Fierro
TBA on Monday
Reserve: Afam Egbochuku vs. Jacob Poss
The biggest name here would of course be Eddie Walker, who has already signed to GLORY and is coming off a big KO win over Joe Schilling, making a big name for himself in the American fight scene. Another recognizable name is Mike Lemaire, who fought and won on K-1's show in Los Angeles back in September. This is a weight class in particular where some Americans could possibly do some damage so it's quite an interesting tournament.
