Marat Grigorian and Sitthichai Sitsongpeenong will fight for the Lightweight title

On may 17th Marat will go head to head with Sitsongpeenong again to fight for the Lightweight belt.

Vengeance is on the mind of lightweight contender Marat ‘The Armenian Devil’ Grigorian (60-11-1, 35 KO’s) as he heads into his third title challenge against defending champion Sitthichai ‘The Killer Kid’ Sitsongpeenong (122-30-5, 32) in the co-headline bout of the evening.

Their first title fight took place at GLORY 36 COLLISION when Sitthichai, fighting out Bangkok, Thailand, retained his title by way of a split-decision win after five rounds. They rematched at GLORY 57 SHENZEN in August last year and Sitthichai again came away with the split-decision win.

Grigorian’s team cried foul at the Shenzen decision, pointing out that the FightMetric stats showed their man outlanding the champion by some margin. 

Their calls for a rematch began immediately and since then Grigorian, fighting out of Armenia by way of Belgium, has stayed in the #1 contender slot by beating former title challenger Chris Baya. The rivals now look for a definitive result in this trilogy title bout.

Broadcast details and additional bouts for GLORY 65 UTRECHT, GLORY 65 SuperFight Series and the GLORY 65 Prelims will be announced shortly.
