The Kickboxing world was once again in the spotlight this weekend with GLORY 12 New York, where Andy Ristie shocked the world in knocking out Giorgio Petrosyan and Robin van Roosmalen in one night, just like Wayne Barrett shocked the world with a win over Joe Schilling. The big news coming out of the event is that the long-rumored bout in Croatia between Mirko Cro Cop and Remy Bonjasky is indeed confirmed as official. [link]
On March 8th in Croatia GLORY will hold an event featuring Mirko Cro Cop vs. Remy Bonjasky, promoted in conjunction with Orsat Zovko, Mirko Cro Cop’s manger. The rumor is that this will serve as Remy Bonjasky’s retirement bout, as Bonjasky has been plagued with eye problems for the past few years, which forced him to retire once before. He has been unable to see properly and risks permanent eye damage or loss of sight every time he fights.
