The Glory Kickboxing Promotion has been in “Full Force” throwing these mega events around the world. Another show was announced today by Glory this time featuring American Nak Muay Kevin Ross. “Glory 8” will feature a one night, eight man tournament taking place on May 3rd, 2013 at Ariake Coliseum in Tokyo, Japan. This tournament will be in the 143 lbs. weight division with $100,000 going to the winner.
This will be Kevin Ross’s first fight under the multi fight contract he signed with Glory. Other featured fighters in this tournament besides Kevin Ross are Abdellah Ezbiri, Marcos Vinicius, and Mosab Amrani.
This is going to be an active year for Kevin Ross having signed with Glory and Lion Fight Promotions. His last fight was at “Lion Fight 8” where he defeated Chris Kwiatkowski of New York by unanimous decision. Judging from his last fight he seems to be in tip top shape after the long lay off recovering from ACL Surgery. He is arguably the most well known American Muay Thai Fighter throughout the world.
Kevin Ross’s next scheduled fight is March 15th, 2013 for Lion Fight Promotion’s “Lion Fight 9” at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, NV. Kevin Ross will be facing Bernie Mendieta from the UK on the undercard. The main event for “Lion Fight 9” will be the long anticipated bout between Artem Levin and Simon Marcus being broadcasted live on AXS TV.
