Kickboxing gala Glory 42 is held on June 10 in Paris.

Glory 42 Paris is a five-fight bill live on ESPN 2. In the main event Cedric Doumbe of France faces off Nieky Holzken of Holland. The Frenchman is a current welterweight champion who is looking forward to the second defense of the title. Ranked No.3 in the division Holzken highly anticipates to take the revenge that follows their encounter in 2016, as well as regain the belt.

The co-headline event is a welterweight encounter between Murthel Groenhart of Holland and Harut Grigorian of Armenia. The bout is also a rematch with their clash in 2012 when the Dutchman won by KO in Round 3 with punches.

In the second Niclas Larsen of Denmark is up against Stoyan Koprivlenski of Bulgaria. The winners of these bouts will face off in the final for the opportunity to challenge later this year the current champion in the division Sitthichai Sitsongpeenong of Thailand.
