Final fight card heading into Saturday’s GLORY 12: New York

The world’s most famous Arena, Madison Square Garden, hosts the twelfth installment of prominent Kickboxing promotion, GLORY, on Saturday, November 23.

GLORY 12: New York is set to air LIVE on SPIKE TV.

The event features a laudable line-up, that is set to be highlighted by GLORY’s four-man Lightweight Championship tournament and the presence of Muay Thai extraordinaire and one of the best strikers on the planet, Giorgio Petrosyan (76-1-2, 1 NC). Petrosyan is the current no.1 kickboxer in the world. However, with the likes of Robin van Roosmalen, Andy Ristie, and Davit Kiria all eyeing the tourney prize, it’s undoubtedly set to be a competitive one. Moreover, after proceedings at GLORY 11, it would be daft to count the any of the fighters out.

GLORY 12 will be headlined by a clash between reigning GLORY Middleweight and interim WBC Muay Thai Light-Heavyweight champ Joe Schilling (16-4), and up-and-coming phenom, Wayne Barrett (3-0). The latter, who has gone 2-0 under the promotion’s banner, will be the underdog going into this one given his opponent’s vast experience in the combat game. Schilling is, for the record, a professional Boxer and a professional Mixed Martial Artist. The 29-year-old American is coming off two consecutive victories, one of which includes a three-round decision win over Artem Levin which garnered him the GLORY Middleweight title. This match-up would certainly appeal the to better part of the North American audience.

The co-main event pits former K-1 World grand prix champ Ben Edwards (37-8-2) against Moroccan Jamal Ben Saddik (24-3), who’s widely considered as a top five Heavyweight kickboxer in the globe. In a fight that’s guaranteed to produce fireworks, this bout is a treat to fight fans. With Edwards riding on a three fight streak, Saddik looks to erase consecutive set-backs against Daniel Ghita and Peter Aerts.

Superfights and an undercard make up the rest of the fight card.
