Jaraya, Hamicha, Menshikov, Duut Added to GLORY 76 Line-up

Seven more fights have today been confirmed for the GLORY 76 ANTWERP card taking place Saturday, March 28 at AED Studios in Antwerp, Belgium.

Fan-favorite Mohammed ‘The Destroyer’ Jaraya (65-8, 36 KO’s, ranked #9) brings his trademark aggression to the ring for what is certain to be an action-packed lightweight encounter with the UK’s Luke ‘Skywalker’ Whelan (50-13-1, 8 KO’s, ranked #5) on the main card.

The Superfight Series card gets a new headliner as Hamicha (38-2, 28 KO’s, ranked #3) and Dmitrii Menshikov (11-1, 7 KO’s, ranked #4) drop in for a welterweight war.

‘The Dreamcrusher’ Michael Duut (43-13, 20 KO’s, ranked #9) wants to give Stéphane Susperregui (49-10-2, 28 KO’s, ranked #8) a nightmare in their light-heavyweight matchup and end the French veteran’s resurgence.

Undefeated featherweight River Daz (28-0-1, 6 KO’s, ranked #10) travels from Australia aiming to maintain his perfect professional record as he faces Brazil’s Julio Lobo (41-12, 26 KO’s).

Joining him on the journey from Down Under is young heavyweight Junior Tafa (21-5, 17 KO’s, ranked #10), who faces newcomer Martin Pacas (42-10, 10 KO’s).

And on the Preliminary Card, ‘The British Bulldog’ Bailey Sugden (13-5, 1 NC, 3 KO’s) faces Belgium’s own Nafi Bilalovski (26-7, 1 NC, 18 KO’s) in a featherweight battle while Massaro ‘The Project’ Glunder (33-14-4, 20 KO’s) faces Jos van Belzen (8-1, 3 KO’s) in the lightweight division.

One fight has also today been removed from the GLORY 76 line-up: Zakaria Zougarry has suffered a knee injury in training and is unable to compete against Anvar Boynazarov, who will be redeployed to another card.
