Abdellah Ezbiri (47-14-1, 14 KO) is coming of the defeat suffered by unanimous decision in a rematch against Anvar Boynazarov this past March. Before that he knocked out Victor Pinto in the first round.

Zakaria Zouggary (31-5-1, 15 KO) was last seen inside the GLORY Kickboxing ring last September, when he lost by unanimous decision against Aleksei Ulianov. Prior to that he scored a unanimous decision against Bailey Sugden.

The Ezbiri vs. Zouggary bout is scheduled for three rounds. The contest between two competitors with Moroccan heritage is a “clash with implications for the featherweight contender picture” (via the announcement sent out by the promotion).

In the main event of GLORY 70 Lyon Cedric Doumbe defends his welterweight title against former champion Murthel Groenhart. The pair meets for the third time currently holding a win over each other. The championship bout is scheduled for five rounds.
