Bonn, Germany: GLORY, the world’s largest kickboxing organization, announces the complete GLORY 82 fight card, taking place at the Maritim Hotel in Bonn, Germany this Saturday, November 19.
The event will be headlined by an exhilarating heavyweight matchup between No. 1 ranked contender Antonio Plazibat (pictured below) and No. 10 ranked contender Raul Catinas. With three knockout victories in his last three fights, Plazibat has solidified his status as one of the most devastating finishers in the sport. He will look to continue his dominance against Catinas, a veteran of the division known for his durability and power punches.
Co-headlining the event is a Welterweight Title Bout between Alim Nabiyev and Endy Semeleer. The No. 2 ranked welterweight contender in the world, Nabiyev enters the bout coming off a win over Troy Jones in his last GLORY appearance. He will meet Semeleer, the No. 3 ranked welterweight contender and one of the top prospects in the sport, who earned a spot in the division’s top-five with a dominant win over Shkodran Veseli at GLORY Rivals 2.
Also featured on the card, MMA veteran Joilton Lutterbach will make his GLORY debut against fellow debutant Mark Trijsburg in a welterweight bout. Top-five lightweight contender Itay Gershon will make his return to the GLORY ring against promotional newcomer Cihad Akipa.
The card will also mark the return of perennial heavyweight contender Jahfarr Wilnis, who will be making his first appearance on the GLORY stage since 2019. He will meet promotional newcomer Michal Blawdziewicz.
Opening the GLORY 82 main card, No. 2 ranked middleweight contender Serkan Ozcaglayan will make a quick turn around after competing at COLLISION 4 less than two weeks ago. He will look to get back on the winning track against former Middleweight Title Challenger Juri De Sousa.
The GLORY 82 Prelims will be headlined by two featherweight bouts, as Denis Wosik faces El Mesbahi, and Ahmad Chikh Mousa will fight Mohamed el Hammouti.
