Yohan Lidon vs Yoann Kongolo headlines kickboxing program at Glory 42 Super Fight Series.
Kickboxing promotion Glory 42 is held on June 10 in Paris. The event is an 11-fight bill comprising five bouts live on ESPN2 and six bouts on UFC Fight Pass. This week the promotion announced a complete fight card.
In the main event of Glory 42 Paris Cedric Doumbe of France faces off Nikey Holzken of Holland. Frenchman looks forward to the second defense of the welterweight title while the Dutch fighter highly anticipates to take the revenge.
The headliner of Glory 42 Super Fight Series features Yohan Lidon (92-35-1, 55 KO) of France up against Yoann Kongolo (64-9, 46 KO) of Switzerland. The bout is also a welterweight encounter.
Lidon is a notable competitor in the division, who currently holds a prestegious World Kickboxing Network super middleweight title. This year he also appears as one of the busiest fighters with two recent bouts accomplished during the last three weeks. Last weekend Lidon came out victorious at Dark Fights: Capital Fights 2 earning a decision against his country-fellow Djibril Ehouo. Two weeks earlier he made the second defense of the WKN title against Patrik Vidakovics of Hungary in the headline event of Dubai Fight. The bout against Kongolo in two weeks time is his debut in Glory.
Kongolo is a former challenger for the Glory belt who went up against Doumbe last March in Brussels. Coming out of a defeat he certainly aspires to square his record. Kongolo earned his title shot when he defeated Karim Benmansour of France and Konstantin Khuzin of Russia in the contender tournament in Los Angeles earlier this year.
