Three fights have today been confirmed for GLORY 11 CHICAGO. Signed bout agreements are in place for all three fights.
Former world-ranked #1 light-heavyweight Danyo Ilunga (53-5, 40 KO’s) will look to bounce back from his GLORY 9 tournament disappointment when he faces the hard-hitting Michael Duut (38-4, 17 KO’s) of Amsterdam, Netherlands.
Ilunga, a student of Remy Bonjasky and equally prone to using his illustrious trainer’s trademark flying knee technique, won two consecutive fights in New York to book a spot in the final. He was then stopped by Tyrone Spong to take the tournament’s runner-up spot.
Duut came out of the tournament at #6 in the rankings and will crack the Top Five if he can score an impressive win. He looked to be on course for a big upset at GLORY 9 when he dropped Spong in the first round of their quarter-final fight, only for Spong to rebound instantly with a knockout blow of his own.
Gabriel Varga (22-2, 8 KO’s) is the son of a Shotokan Karate instructor and was a black belt by the age of sixteen. He has also spent extensive time in Thailand training the native art of Muay Thai. Varga has numerous national and international championships to his name and is 1-1 in GLORY after debuting in the 8-man featherweight slam tournament earlier this year.
Making his debut against Varga is Shane Oblonsky of Seal Beach, California, heading into what he calls “the biggest fight of my life”. Oblonsky arrives in GLORY having blasted his way through regional and international opposition, with numerous first- and second-round KO’s to his name.
British lightweight Reece McAllister (36-4-1, 12 KO’s) returns to the Glory World Series ring for the first time since beating Tim Thomas in his March debut. He will face Australian knockout artist ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Moxon (33-6-1, 22 KO’s). Moxon was originally set to face Gesias ‘JZ’ Cavalcante but the Blackzilians fighter has been forced to pull out with an injury.
GLORY 11 CHICAGO takes place at the Sears Center Arena, Hoffman Estates, Illinois on Saturday October 12.
The main card airs live and free on SPIKE TV and hosts a four-man heavyweight championship tournament featuring Gokhan Saki, Daniel Ghita, Anderson ’Braddock’ Silva and Rico Verhoeven.
