Due to visa issues, Anvar Boynazarov’s slot in the GLORY 39 Brussels one-night, four-man featherweight contender tournament will now be filled by Nafi Bilalovski. Belgian-born Bilalovski takes on former GLORY featherweight champion Serhiy Adamchuk (33-7, 16 KO), ranked No. 2 in the division, in the first of two semifinal match-ups. Later in the evening, the winner of their bout will go on to face the winner of another semifinal bout between Petchpanomrung Kiatmookao and Alexei Ulyanov.
