The last time the world saw Armenian kickboxing technician Giorgio Petrosyan in a Glory ring, he was knocked out by a wicked Andy Ristie uppercut. The shocking loss ended the brilliant striker’s 42-fight winning streak. Meanwhile, Ristie would go on to win the Glory lightweight title.
Petrosyan spent the last two years fighting in the Hero Legends promotion, where he quickly won three straight and captured a title. In August, he flattened Xu Yan in the third with a murderous knee to the body to capture said belt.
Petrosyan (79-2-2, 36 KOs) will headline Glory 25: Milan, which will be held at the Palaper in Monza, Italy on Friday, Nov. 6. His opponent has not been revealed but an announcement is expected soon.
The card will also feature a four-man same-day welterweight tournament, with the winner getting a crack at champion Nieky Holzken. The four combatants were not revealed.
