    Default GLORY 44 Chicago (25-8)

    GLORY 44 Chicago to Feature Welterweight Championship Bout, GLORY 44 SuperFight Series Sees Super Bantamweight Title Defense

    Tweet

    Published on Jul 12, 2017
    Welterweight Championship Bout: Cédric Doumbé vs.Murthel GroenhartSuper Bantamweight Championship Bout: Tiffany van Soest vs. Funda Alkayış After settling the score with Nieky Holzken at GLORY 42 Paris in June, reigning and defending GLORY welterweight world champion Cédric "The Best" Doumbé (67-4-1, 39 KO, fighting out of France) sets his sights on yet another rival in Murthel "The Predator" Groenhart (66-22-3, 38 KO, fighting out of the Netherlands).

    Their grudge began when Doumbé, at the time a rising contender, defeated Groenhart in March of 2016. Bleeding into interviews and onto social media, the pair's spirited back-and-forth will finally come to a head at GLORY 44 Chicago, with championship gold on the line.

    Heading into the rematch, the 24-year-old Doumbé has won four fights in a row under the GLORY banner, including two victories over Nieky Holzken – widely considered kickboxing royalty – and is currently on a 12-fight winning streak overall.

    Groenhart, currently ranked No. 1 at welterweight, is a veteran of GLORY and a staple of the championship level kickboxing scene for over a decade. His most recent victory also came at GLORY 42 Paris, grabbing headlines for his knockout of feared striker Harut Grigorian.

    In a battle between Illinois natives, No. 8-ranked Richard "Maximus" Abraham (11-5, 4 KO, fighting out of the United States) and formidable Daniel "La Maquina" Morales (representing Mexico) look to ignite the hometown crowd as co-headliners at GLORY 44 Chicago.

    The current fight card for GLORY 44 Chicago can be found below:

    GLORY 44 Chicago
    Welterweight Title Headline Bout: Cédric Doumbé vs. Murthel Groenhart
    Welterweight Co-Headline Bout: Richard Abraham vs. Daniel Morales

    Tiffany “Time Bomb” van Soest (17-2-1, 5 KO, fighting out of the United States) is set to make the first defense of her super bantamweight world title, taking on Muay Thai fighter Funda “Findik” Alkayiş (29-2, 12 KO, fighting out of Turkey), who challenges for the belt following a dominant decision over Vanessa De Waele last July at GLORY 32 SuperFight Series.

    Van Soest splits her time between Kickboxing and Mixed Martial Arts, where she competes as a strawweight under the Invicta FC banner. Inside the ring, she has won seven in a row, including an unblemished 3-0 record since joining GLORY. She captured kickboxing gold in December at GLORY: COLLISION, successfully navigating the inaugural Women's Super Bantamweight Grand Prix tournament. Inside the cage, she picked up her first professional victory in May, defeating Christine Ferea via unanimous decision to bring her MMA record to an even 1-1.

    Cătălin "The Carpathian Death" Moroșanu (44-10, 26 KO, fighting out of Romania), who captured hearts and minds with his passion earlier this year at GLORY 38, will compete against a heavyweight opponent to be named later.

    The current fight card for GLORY 44 SuperFight Series can be found below:

    GLORY 44 Chicago
    Super Bantamweight Title Headline Bout: Tiffany van Soest vs. Funda Alkayiş

    Wednesday, Jul 26 2017
    Plus, Dustin Jacoby returns in one of six GLORY 44 SuperFight Series bouts
    Two welterweight bouts have already been announced for GLORY 44 Chicago, including the grudge match between 24-year-old world champion Cédric "The Best" Doumbé (67-4-1, 39 KO, fighting out of France) and rival Murthel "The Predator" Groenhart (66-22-3, 38 KO, fighting out of the Netherlands) and the night's co-headline battle between Illinois natives Richard "Maximus" Abraham (11-5, 4 KO, fighting out of the United States), ranked No. 8, and formidable Daniel "La Maquina" Morales (representing Mexico).

    Now, four more welterweight contenders join the fray in a one-night tournament at GLORY 44 Chicago.

    In the first of two tournament semifinal bouts, No. 4-ranked Harut Grigorian (44-11, 32 KO, fighting out of the Netherlands) and No. 5-ranked veteran Karim "Le Felin" Benmansour (48-7-2, 22 KO, fighting out of France) both look to get back on the winning track, while 26-year-old French-born prodigy Antoine Pinto (132-36-1, 77 KO, fighting out of Thailand) puts his No. 7 ranking on the line against tough-as-nails American Casey "Go" Greene (5-7, 2 KO, fighting out of the United States) in the other semifinal match-up.

    Crowd favorite Cătălin "The Carpathian Death" Moroșanu (44-10, 26 KO, fighting out of Romania) revisits the scene of February's bone-rattling knockout, welcoming heavyweight standout Michal Turynski (21-9, 6 KO, fighting out of Poland) to the ring for his promotional debut in the GLORY 44 SuperFight Series co-headline bout.

    GLORY 44 SuperFight Series also marks the return of UFC and Bellator veteran turned GLORY championship challenger Dustin "The Hanyak" Jacoby (9-8, 7 KO, fighting out of the United States), facing California-based mixed martial artist and Muay Thai practitioner Sean Choice (6-2, fighting out of the United States) at middleweight. Currently ranked No. 6 in the division, Jacoby will appear for the first time since breaking his arm against reigning middleweight champion Simon Marcus in October.

    Atlanta's Warren "Destroyer" Thompson (14-8-1, 3 KO, fighting out of the United States) squares off against Ontario's Robert "The White Dragon" Thomas (8-5, 5 KO, fighting out of Canada). This fight features top-10 talent, with Thompson and Thomas ranked No. 7 and No. 8, respectively at middleweight.

    Lightweight Rafal Dudek (20-12, 9 KO, fighting out of Poland) turns around quickly after throwing down at GLORY 43 New York earlier this month, accepting the challenge of WAKO Team USA athlete Nate "The Natural" Richardson (10-2, 5 KO, fighting out of the United States).

    Victor "Leo" Pinto (72-27, 22 KO, fighting out of Thailand), the younger brother of Antoine Pinto, kicks off GLORY 44 SuperFight Series with fellow featherweight Adrian Maxim (27-8, 17 KO, fighting out of Romania).

    Tiffany “Time Bomb” van Soest (17-2-1, 5 KO, fighting out of the United States) is set to make the first defense of her super bantamweight world title, taking on Muay Thai fighter Funda “Findik” Alkayiş (29-2, 12 KO, fighting out of Turkey) in the headline bout of GLORY 44 SuperFight Series.

    Hopelijk wint Groenhart eindelijk zijn langverwachte belt. Maar het gaat moelijk worden, die Doumbe is goed met zijn spelletje.

    Yep, die moet je niet alleen fysiek bij je weghouden, maar ook nog uit je kop zien te houden.

    Groenhart winnen en hem dan weer aan holzken verliezen...

    Ik vind het huidige kickboksen niet meer zo interessant om te kijken. Voorheen vond ik het veel leuker om te kijken na partijen van peter Aerts, andy hug en jerome le banner.

    Wat keek je dan precies na de partijen van Aerts, Hug en Le Banner? Achter de schermen beelden?

    Met Groenhart, Kongolo, Doumbé en nu in mindere maten Holzken heeft die divisie toch best een leuk aanbod aan vechters hoor. En dan komen er daarachter nog een aantal interessanten.

    Dat zijn de zwaargewichten van toen. Tegenwoordig heb je verschillende gewichtsklasse waar je een belt van kan winnen. Voorheen had je de zwaargewichten en alles wat onder de 70 kilo had je K1 Max voor, dus maar twee gewichtsklasse.
    Nu is er veel meer competitie voor meer kickboksers voor verschillende gewichten en dat is goed voor de sport.
    Wat je nu helaas hebt is dat er wat minder zwaargewicht toppers zijn en daar door lijkt het als of deze sport minder interessant is bij het grote publiek.
    Maar het weltergewicht (Holkzen, Doumbe, Groenhart, Kongolo etc) is voor mij wel interessant om naar te kijken en dat geldt ook voor de andere gewichtsklasse. Ze moeten gewoon wat meer goede kickboksers contracteren bij Glory die buiten Glory vechten.
