Results and Recap: Glory 5

Glory 5 took place yesterday in London, England and it did not disappoint. In the night’s main event Tyrone Spong took on Kickboxing legend Remy Bonjasky. In the second round of their bout a right hook from Spong floored Bonjasky and ended the bout. It was a spectacular knockout for the hard hitting Spong who expressed interest in fighting Daniel Ghita, Gokhan Saki or Semmy Schilt next.

In the night’s co-main event Jordan Watson out pointed Steve Moxon to take home a unanimous decision victory. Watson was a step ahead of Moxon the entire fight and won his second fight under Glory.

UK super star Liam Harrison was surprisingly knocked out with a body shot by Mosab Amrani. Harrison and Amrani are two of the top fighters in their weight class word wide. It seemed like typical Harrison when the bout started as he began to work his patented leg kicks, but as Amrani closed the distance with some punches a left hook connected and ended Harrison’s night.

Road to Glory tournament winner Dustin Jacoby was stopped in his bout with Michael Duut. Jacoby was knocked down three times in the first round and under the Glory three knockdown rule the bout was stopped.

American Eddie Walker was defeated by Steve Wakeling in the second round. Wakeling from the start off the fight began to attack Walker’s leg with kicks. He scored a knocked down due to leg kicks in the opening round and ended the bout in the second round with leg kicks.
