GLORY kickboxing returns on August 19 with another exciting four-man one-night qualification tournament for the historic GLORY Heavyweight Grand Prix set for the end of the year.
Taking place live from the Rotterdam Ahoy arena in the Netherlands, GLORY 87 is set to be another action-packed event as four fighters will aim to punch their ticket for a chance to win a whopping $500,000.
The four participants are as follows:
Martin Terpstra (21-5, 11 KO) – towering at 6’9” tall, this Dutch giant won his GLORY debut thanks to a second round TKO win at GLORY Rivals 1 last June. He will now be aiming to make up for lost time and kick-start his career.
Mohamed Amine (29-5, 16 KO) – stepping up from light heavyweight, Amine only made his GLORY debut this year and has already been involved in two high-profile fights. Now he will be aiming to use his speed and make it a memorable rookie year in GLORY.
Bahram Rajabzadeh (62-1, 56 KO) – this fighter from Azerbaijan made a statement on his GLORY return in May after four years away by KO’s perennial contender Luis Tavares in the first round. Now he gets his opportunity to enter the biggest kickboxing tournament of the year.
Uku Jürjendal (18-7, 14 KO) – a bulldozer from Estonia, Jurjendal showed everyone what he is capable of in his last fight with first round KO victory thanks to some devastating power punches.
The matchups for the heavyweight tournament semi-finals will be determined at a later date. Stay tuned for more exciting fights to be announced this week.
