Glory 45: Dragos Zubco joins light heavyweight kickboxing tournament
Glory Kickboxing returns to Holland with its 45th promotion held on September 30. The event is a ten-fight international bill comprising Glory 45 Amsterdam and Glory 45 Super Fight Series. On Monday the organization announced an additional heavyweight bout as well as the fourth contender of the light heavyweight tournament, completing the program of the show.
Heavyweights Hesdy Gerges (50-18-1, 23 KO) of Holland and Mladen Brestovac (53-12-1, 34 KO) of Croatia square off on the top of the Glory 45 Super Fight Series bill. Gerges is victorious in his most recent bout against Czech Tomas Hron at Glory 41 Holland in May. Brestovac last competed in a heavyweight contender tournament at Glory 45 Nice where he knocked out Jahfarr Wilnis and lost to Benjamin Adegbuyi.
Moldovan-Italian Dragos Zubco (11-4) makes his debut in Glory World Series going up against Dutch veteran Michael Duut (40-8, 17 KO). The pair battles out in one of the semi-finals of the light heavyweight tournament featured on the Glory 45 Amsterdam program.
A newcomer, Zubco is the WKN European super cruiserweight champion, coming out of the second-round TKO victory against Fabien Fouquet last month in France. Earlier this year he has also earned the WKN International super cruiserweight belt winning via decision against Lucian Danilencu in Italy.
