Glory, the world’s premier kickboxing league, today announced the date and headline bout for its next event, GLORY 14 ZAGREB, to be broadcast from Arena Zagreb in Zagreb, Croatia on Saturday, March 8th.
Building on GLORY 13 TOKYO’s ratings momentum on SPIKE TV, GLORY 14 ZAGREB is headlined by Heavyweight hometown hero Mirko ‘Cro Cop’ Filipovic (22-7-0, 12 KOs) making his GLORY debut against fellow living legend Remy Bonjasky (98-12-0, 36 KOs). The bout is a rematch from 2002, with Filipovic winning the first encounter via TKO in the second round at the K -1 World Grand Prix 2002 event in Fukuoka, Japan.
Bonjasky has lost his last three fights in a row, two by decision and one by a second-round from the deadly Tyrone Spong. Crocop has won his last 10 kickboxing bouts, and has not been defeated under those rules since 2001.
The full fight card for GLORY 14 ZAGREB will be announced at a later date.
