Bouts added to GLORY 61 lineup
GLORY 61 is held at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York on November 3 (AWST). The event features a series of kickboxing bouts with two titles contested on the top of the bill. On Tuesday the promotion announced a set of additional outings, as well as several changes.
Among the added contests to GLORY 61 Prelims, Nate Richardson (11-4, 5 KO) squares off against Justin Greskiewicz (41-23-3, 18 KO) at featherweight. Malik Watson-Smith (59-24, 36 KO) takes on Charles Rodriguez (8-0, 4 KO) at welterweight. Houssam El Kasri (2-1, 2 KO) goes up against Abraham Vidales (11-0, 9 KO) at featherweight.
The change features the interim featherweight champion Kevin Vannostrand (17-3, 12 KO) who battles out against Massaro Glunder (32-12-4, 20 KO) in the headliner of Super Fight Series. The contest was originally presented on the main card, but was moved replacing previously announced middleweight Jason Wilnis. The latter no longer partakes in the upcoming show and is expected to be rebooked for a future event.
A middleweight battle between Joe Taylor (5-2, 3 KO) and Ivan Galaz (57-6, 15 KO) has been also added to the Super Fight Series card. In addition, Asa Ten Pow (7-1, 5 KO) received an opponent for his featherweight bout, taking on Niko Tsigaras (21-4).
Alan Scheinson (51-7, 37 KO) has been added to the GLORY 61 New York card taking on Omari Boyd (12-1, 1 KO) at welterweight. As well, Chris Camozzi (2-1, 1 KO) faces Myron Dennis (21-7, 10 KO) at light heavyweight.
The event is headlined by Sitthichai Sitsongpeenong who defends his lightweight title against Josh Jauncey. In the co-main event Jady Menezes defends her super bantamweight belt against Anissa Meksen.
