Amsterdam – The card for GLORY 75 UTRECHT is now finalized with the addition of newcomer Bowie Zonneveld to the headline bout of the Preliminary Card, where he replaces China’s Gaofeng Meng against Spain’s Antonio Campoy (20-2-4, 4 KO’s).

Zonneveld (3-3) fights out of the long-established Team Spirit in Beverwijk, Netherlands and rides a two-fight win streak into this short-notice GLORY debut.

World featherweight champion Petchpanomrung (163-36-3, 27 KO’s) headlines the card, traveling from Bangkok, Thailand to defend his title belt against former champion Serhii Adamchuk (40-11, 15 KO’s), from Ukraine but fighting out of Mike’s Gym in Amsterdam.
