Glory Kickboxing’s next event. Glory 14, will be held Saturday, March 8th, 2014 in Zagreb, Croatia featuring rising star, Artur Kyshenko. His opponent is #3 ranked Welterweight, Karapet Karapetyan. A win against Karapetyan will automatically place Kyshenko into title contender consideration. With knockouts being Kyshenko’s specialty and a camp that puts extra emphasis on finishing fights he will be looking to add another knock-out to his record.
Kyshenko, who does not display a lack of confidence, was quoted recently saying, “Yeah, I’m confident. I came to Glory Kickboxing to show that I am the best in the world.”
Karapetyan isn’t the only one in Kyshenko’s sights. He is already looking to fight #2 ranked Joseph “Bazooka Joe” Valtellini and Nieki Holzken who currently occupies the #1 spot. Though confident, Kyshenko cannot enter the ring while underestimating Karapetyan. Karapetyan is tall, strong and has excellent range. He is probably best known as the most technical striker in the Glory Welterweight Division.
The evening’s main event features one of the biggest names in all of fighting, Mirko “Crocop” Filipovic. He is a man with a resume second to none in the Martial Arts world. Along with previous fights in Pride Fighting Championships, K-1 and the Ultimate Fighting Championship, he will soon be adding Glory to his resume.
A southpaw fighter with unequalled power in his left leg, Filipovic will be taking on Remy Bonjasky. Bonjasky has had his issues lately. He has gone 2 and 3 since joining Glory. He is also a three-time winner of the K-1 World Grand Prix, an elimination Kickboxing tournament, Bonjasky uses exciting combinations of flying knees and unorthodox striking skills to rip his opponents apart.
In what is should be an amazing night of martial combat, one can only sit and wait with anticipation as Glory returns in March with a potentially exciting event
