4 more fights confirmed for Glory 12 in New York

Glory has officially confirmed four more fights for Glory 12 in New York. The bouts are Eddie Walker vs. Francois Ambang, Brian Collette vs. Warren Thompson, Artem Vakhitov vs. Nenad Pagonis, and Dustin Jacoby vs. Makoto Uehara. As previously announced Glory 12 will host the promotions lightweight tournament which will feature Giorgio Petrosyan vs. Andy Ristie, and Robin van Roosmalen vs. Davit Kiria.

Both Walker and Ambang will be looking to get back on the winning track. Each fighter lost their last fight by (T)KO due to leg kicks. Walker at Glory 5 against Steve Wakeling, and Ambang at Glory 9 against Joseph Valtellini. Both are known for their heavy hands and it should be an exciting fight between two heavy hitters.

Collette will look to build upon his win over Randy Blake at Glory 10 by welcoming Glory new comer Thompson. The Atlanta based Thompson has competed in both Muay Thai and MMA and most recently was featured on the Enfusion reality TV series.  

Vakhitov will be looking to build on his impressive win at Glory 9 where he made his promotional debut with a body shot knockout over Luis Tavares. Pagonis will look to have an impressive promotional debut as he steps into the Glory ring for the first time.

Jacoby made his pro Kickboxing debut by winning the Road to Glory light heavyweight tournament. Formerly an MMA fighter, Jacoby has done well building a solid 4-2 mark for Glory. His last competed at Glory 9 where he went 1-1 on the night in the Glory light heavyweight tournament, beating Brian Collette in the quarter finals and losing to Danyo Ilunga in the semi-finals. Uehara will be making his Glory debut, the Japanese fighter holds wins over the likes of Stefan Leko and Glory fighter Kengo Shimizu.
