British fighter Steve Wakeling has been removed from the Glory 10 Los Angeles card due to problems with getting a visa to enter U.S.A for the event.
Wakeling was to take part in the 4-man Glory middleweight world championship tournament, facing USA’s Joe Schilling in the semifinals.
Look, I’m just going to say it, I think Wakeling would have won the tournament, so it is a shame that a visa issue will prevent him from competing.
Wakeling will be replaced by Japan’s Kengo Shimizu (16-3). Shimizu is a former champion in the Japanese promotions RISE and REBELS.
