Wayne Barrett
Queens, NY

Fighter of the Month, Wayne Barrett, recently signed to the co-main event in GLORY 12 New York, versus GLORY Middleweight Champion, Joe Schilling, who recently defeated Artem Levin to take the GLORY Middleweight Tournament Championship.

Originally from Georgia, Wayne now lives and trains in Queens, NY under Kru Rob Rogan at Square Circle New York for his Muay Thai. Wayne’s additional coaches are Jason Strout (Boxing) and TJ Lopez (Strength and Conditioning). He started training martial arts when he was 5 years old after watching karate movies as a kid and dreamed about becoming a kung fu master or samurai.

With an amateur record of 19-1 and 15 KO’s and a professional record 3-0, with all 3 wins by KO, the former amateur WKA US Champion and Georgia Golden Gloves State Champion, has been making a big name for himself on the GLORY Sport’s International (GSI) circuit. As an amateur fighter, Wayne has been ever present competing at WKA sanctioned events, including Take-On Promotions, Friday Night Fights, & Bangkok Fight Night.

With big wins at both Glory 9 over Road to Glory winner Mike Lemaire and Glory 10’s KO over Robby Plotkin has moved his ranking to #6 in the Glory Middleweight division. Wayne is looking to move up in those ranks to become #1 in his weight division while retaining his undefeated record.

“I am here to show that as long as you believe in yourself and surround yourself with the right people you can make anything happen. Once you start a journey and you’re serious, things fall into place with GOD's grace. That’s why I can take these fights and know I’m going to win.”
