Heavyweight Contenders:

#2 ranked Turkish heavyweight Gökhan Saki, "The Rebel," is out to continue his rampage through the heavyweight ranks, racking up KO after KO over much larger opponents, and he won't stop until he's got the Heavyweight World Championship belt wrapped around his waist.

Former Romanian Secret Service agent, world #3 ranked heavyweight "The Savage Samurai" Daniel Ghita, has a score to settle with #2 ranked Saki, and this 4-man tournament could easily result in the explosive tournament final match up of Saki vs. Ghita, Part III.

#6 ranked "Prince of Kickboxing" Rico Verhoeven is an absolute tank of a heavyweight, measuring 6 feet 4 inches and weighing in at 260lbs. Rico is the youngest competitor in the tournament at 24 years old, and he's ready to step up and take the crown.

Tournament dark horse, #8 ranked Anderson Braddock Silva comes out of the same camp as his MMA namesake, and years of sparring experience with the great Peter Aerts have taught him a thing or two about what it means to fight with the best.

World Kickboxing Association and GLORY Sports International
Announce Cooperation with A Unified Rules of Kickboxing Template

New York, NY (Sept. 13, 2013) – GLORY Sports International, the world’s premier kickboxing league, announced its cooperation with the World Kickboxing Association resulting in the implementation of a set of standardized rules called “GLORY Rules” (GR) for a new WKA division that will sanction fights utilizing them.

WKA has officially adopted a set of rules developed by Glory Sports International (GSI) that reflects a meeting point of unique elements of both Thaiboxing and Kickboxing. Together these blended styles create a fast and exhilarating pace that GLORY fans have come to know well. This news is serendipitously timed for the league’s major television presence on Spike TV, premiering Saturday, October 12, 2013.

Brian Crenshaw, President of WKA USA, expressed his excitement for GLORY’s success with professional kickboxing in general. “Due to WKA USA’s support, amateur fighters will be given an opportunity to fight with the same regulations as the GLORY fighters do.”

On this subject, Crenshaw stated that he feels that there should be a “farm system” to help fighters gain experience, saying, “We rolled out the ‘GLORY Rules in the US for the recent Combat Sports Challenge 37 held in Richmond, VA in late August to great success.”
