Video – GLORY 14: Sahak Parparyan vs. Jason Wilnis Preview

On March 8th, the world’s premier kickboxing promotion, GLORY, makes a pit-stop at the Zagreb Arena in Zagreb, Croatia for its fourteenth installment.

As previously announced, a heavyweight tilt between former three-time K-1 Grand Prix champ Remy Bonjasky (98-12-0, 36 KOs) and fellow K-1 world champ Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic (22-7-0, 12 KOs), will serve as the headliner for GLORY 14.

In the co-main event, Andy Ristie fights for the first time since his shock, upset knockout victory over longtime divisional kingpin, Giorgio Petrosyan, in the semi-finals of GLORY 12′s Lightweight tourney in November last year. The 31-year-old Suriname native defends his Lightweight crown (this will be the first time GLORY has one of its tournament champions defend his belt) against GLORY 12 tournament competitor, David Kiria.

And, the promotion’s trademark tournament concept returns, this time with the Middleweights taking the spotlight. Dustin Jacoby, Alex Pereira, Sahak Parparyan and Jason Wilnis compete against one another and qualify for a championship tournament targeted later on in the year.

Parparyan triumphed over Wilnis in their first meeting in 2012, scooping a Unanimous Decision victory over his Dutch counterpart. A former It’s Showtime champ, Wilnis is known for the fast aggressive tone he sets for his fights. He has gone 1-1 under the GLORY banner thus far. Parparyan, meanwhile, is a native of Armenia, and the sizeable Middleweight trains alongside phenoms such as Badr Hari and Melvin Manhoef at the famed Mike’s Gym.
