AMSTERDAM - GLORY, the world’s leading kickboxing organization, returns to Germany on Saturday, October 12 for GLORY 69 DÜSSELDORF in Düsseldorf, Germany.
The world lightweight championship is on the line in the main event as reigning champion Marat Grigorian (61-11-1, 35 KO’s) makes his first defense of the title he took from former champion Sitthichai earlier this year.
Challenging Grigorian is young contender Tyjani ‘The Wonderboy’ Beztati (19-3, 6 KO’s), who is taking a shot at the world title for the second time.
Beztati, 21, who debuted at GLORY 36 as the youngest fighter ever to sign a GLORY contract, rides a three-fight win streak into this title shot and brings a 9-2 GLORY record to the ring with him.
This five-round main event will be the first time that Grigorian and Beztati have met in the ring, making this a highly-anticipated encounter for fans across the planet.
