Former women’s super bantamweight champions Tiffany Van Soest and Jady Menezes are not longer facing off at the upcoming GLORY 67 fight card held in Orlando, FL on July 6 (AEST). The bout fell off due to injury sustained by Van Soest at training, which forced her to pull out from the contest. Nevertheless, the matchup is planed to be rescheduled for a future event.
“Van Soest sustained an injury during the latter stages of her training camp and has been advised by physicians to cease further training. Her bout with Menezes will be rescheduled to a future GLORY card,” reads the statement.
The Van Soest vs. Menezes bout was expected to co-headline GLORY 67 Orlando, which is topped by Petchpanomrung in defense of his featherweight title against Anvar Boynazarov. According to the fight card currently presented on the official website of GLORY Kickboxing, the new co-main event features Jahfarr Wilnis and D’Angelo Marshall squaring off at heavyweight.
In addition, a featherweight encounter between Abraham Vidales and Trevor Ragin, previously scheduled for the SuperFight Series part of the program, was moved to the main card.
As well, bantamweight Bekah Irwin received a new opponent for her SuperFight Series bout – Taylor Starling, who replaces previously announced Crystal Lawson. Lightweights Keemaan Diop and John Morehouse were moved up from the GLORY 67 prelims to the SuperFight Series card, while featherweights River Daz and Justin Greskiewicz are not longer featured on the roster of the upcoming show.
The finalized fight card for GLORY 67 Orlando is expected to be announced shortly. In accordance with the changes, the current lineup can be found below.
