Petchpanomrung (162-36-2, 27 KO) made his previous featherweight title defense in February in Houston where he scored a unanimous decision against Serhii Adamchuk. “The Professor” is riding the six-fight win streak including victories against Robin Van Roosmalen, Kevin Vannostrand, Abdellah Ezbiri, among others.
Anvar Boynazarov (95-26-2, 53 KO) is coming of a unanimous decision win against Ezbiri earned in March in Strasbourg. Before that he took a split decision against Bailey Sugden.
Tiffany Van Soest (19-4-1, 6 KO) lost her previous bout in a rematch against the current super bantamweight champion Anissa Meksen, who took a split decision in Strasbourg. Last July “Time Bomb” won the fight against Sofia Olofsson by split decision. Her resume also includes the victories against Meryem Uslu and Amel Dehby, just to name a couple.
Jady Menezes (13-3-0, 5 KO) is also coming of the defeat against Meksen who scored the second-round TKO win last November. The bout was their third encounter with the current 2-1 record in favor of the reigning champion.
Other bouts for GLORY 67 Orlando are expected to be announced in the coming weeks. The next event on the promotion’s calendar is a return to France on June 22 with a triple world championship treat held in Paris.
