This will be an excited card that will truly please any fan of the sport. Gokan ‘the Rebel’ Saki (79-16-0, 56 KOs) will make his light heavyweight debut against Nathan ‘Carnage’ Corbett (57-4-0, 45 KOs) of Australia to form the first half of the 4 man tournament.
The other lightweight heavyweight fight will take place between the #1 ranked kickboxing legend Tyrone ‘King of the Ring’ Spong (90-5-0, 60 KOs) and Saulo ‘Classius Clay’ Cavalari (28-2-0, 18 KOs), who is currently ranked #3 in the division. This is another must see fight that will surely see some sparks flying.
The Glory 15 Istanbul card is also headlined by knockout artist Ben Edwards and the heavy hitter Errol Zimmerman. The co-headline event will feature a lightweight fight between the two talented fighters Robin van Roosmalen and the tough Marat Grigorian of Armenia.

Saki has fought and beaten some of the most talented guys in the heavyweight division, but has the natural build of a light heavyweight. This will be the first time that he fights guys his own size, so it will be extremely interesting to see what happens.
Although Saki is my favorite fighter, I have my money on Tyrone to win the tournament, as he has proving over and over that he has what it takes to be the best. Either way you can’t miss this fight night that will be broadcast free on SPIKE TV.
