Ben Edwards, Giorgio Petrosyan, Glory 12 New York, Glory Lightweight World Championship Tournament, Jammal Ben Saddik, Ky Hollenbeck, Madison Square Garden, New York, Robin van Roosmalen, Shemsi Beqiri
Glory have announced more fights for their upcoming Glory 12 New York card, set to take place at the Theatre at Madison Square Garden on the 23rd November.
Switzerland’s Shemsi Beqiri (72-9) will face American Ky Hollenbeck (45-3) in the reserve bout for the Glory Lightweight World Championship Tournament. Both fighters recently fought on the Glory 10 Los Angeles card where Beqiri dropped a decision loss to Robin Van Roosmalen, while Ky Hollenbeck picked up a decision win over Albert Krauss.
At heavyweight, Moroccan Jamal Ben Saddik (24-3) and Australian Ben “The Guv’nor” Edwards (35-9-3) in what promises to be a big, bad, slugfest (hopefully). I can’t say that I’ve seen Ben Saddik do anything other than win or lose big so this fight could be a wonderful contrast to the clean, fast and technical battles that the lightweights will put on.
