GLORY, the world’s premier kickboxing organization, has announced the full fight card for GLORY 25 Milan and GLORY SuperFight Series Milan. The entire event is set to take place on Friday, Nov. 6. from the PalaIper in Monza, Italy.

For the first time ever, one of the GLORY’s champions will put their belt on the line in the main event bout of its SuperFight Series, when GLORY featherweight champion Gabriel Varga (26-2, 8 KO) of Canada defends will put his belt on the line against Amsterdam-based Serhiy Adamchuk (30-5, 14 KO).

The two competitors were originally scheduled to do battle in September before Varga suffered an injury during training camp, forcing him out of the bout. Adamchuk went on to defeat muay thai world champion Anvar Boynazarov via unanimous decision at the inaugural Bellator: Dynamite event.

“Adamchuk wasn’t really on my radar until he joined GLORY, but that win over Marat Grigorian really put him on the map,” stated Varga. “I’ve been watching tape on him and he looks like a good technical fighter and someone who comes to fight, so it should be a great fight.

GLORY 25 will be headlined by the Lightweight World Championship clash between reigning Robin van Roosmalen (34-6, 19 KO) and challenger Sitthichai Sitsongpeenong (103-28-5, 28 KO). Returning lightweight legend Giorgio Petrosyan (81-2-1, 36 KO) and 22-year-old rising star Josh Jauncey (23-5, 12 KO) meet in the co-headline bout.

“We’re on one of the best cards of the year. Robin van Roosmalen vs. Sitthichai in the main event is going to be a war, added Varga. “I am very excited about that fight. And then my friend and sparring partner Josh Jauncey is taking on the biggest challenge of his career when he faces Giorgio Petrosyan in the co-main event. Everyone is assuming Petrosyan wins that one, but honestly I’m seeing things from Josh in sparring which would make them think otherwise. When he gets loose and gets creative, he is very problematic, so that’s going to be an interesting fight.”

Filling out the card for GLORY 25 Milan is a one-night, four-man Welterweight Contender Tournament with championship implications. In the first of two semi-final bouts, Dutch-Surinamese striker Murthel Groenhart (56-18-3, 32 KO) takes on hometown favorite Nicola Gallo (22-9-1, 6 KO) of Italy. The second semi-final scrap pits powerful Swiss boxer and muay thai stylist Yoann Kongolo (60-5, 45 KO) up against unorthodox French karateka Karim “Gadjetboy” Ghajji (93-10-1, 49 KO).

The tournament winner will face GLORY Welterweight World Champion Nieky “The Natural” Holzken at GLORY 26 Amsterdam on Dec. 4.
