The PalaIper in Monza, Italy will host GLORY Lightweight World Champion Robin "Pokerface" van Roosmalen (34-6-0, 19 KO) defending his belt against GLORY 22 Contender Tournament winner Sitthichai Sitsongpeenong (99-27-5, 26 KO) at GLORY 25 Mlan on Nov. 6.
The Dutch title holder is riding a three-fight win streak under the GLORY banner, most recently defeating rival Andy Ristie at GLORY 20 Dubai in April.
"I'm going to pressure [Sitthichai]. He doesn't like being put under pressure and pushed backwards," said van Roosmalen. "It will be a great fight and I look forward to keeping hold of this belt for a long time."
The challenger from Thailand stormed onto the scene in his promotional debut at GLORY 22 Lille in June, knocking out former lightweight champion Davit Kiria and notching a dominant unanimous decision victory over young contender Josh Jauncey in the same night to earn his No. 1 ranking and title shot.
"It is very difficult for an orthodox stance fighter to withstand the the damage from my powerful left kicks," said Sitthichai. "[Van Roosmalen] is tough and has good heart; he will be harder to hurt than my past opponents. He is also dangerous, a heavy puncher."
The recently announced bout match-up between returning Giorgio "The Doctor" Petrosyan (78-2-1, 35 KO) and 22-year-old rising star Josh Jauncey (23-5, 12 KO) will serve as the co-headline bout for GLORY 25 Milan.
Additional bouts for GLORY 25 Milan, including GLORY's one-night, four-man Welterweight Contender Tournament will be announced at a later date. The tournament winner will earn the next shot at GLORY Welterweight World Champion Nieky Holzken.
