Yoann Kongolo Dominates Yohan Lidon in Glory 42 SuperFight Series Main Event

By Mike Sloan Jun 10, 2017
Glory returned to Paris on Saturday for another solid night of kickboxing action as the American promotion took over the Accorhotels Arena with Glory 42. Welterweight contender Yoann Kongolo made a strong push for a crack at the division’s world title by dominating Yohan Lidon in the Glory 42 SuperFight Series undercard main event.

Kongolo was superb from start to finish as he thwarted most of his foe’s attacks, all the while cracking him with crisp punches and kicks to the head, body and legs. Lidon tried constantly to turn the tides and stem the flow of attrition, but Kongolo was on point throughout and won a lopsided unanimous decision. All five ringside judges favored Kongolo via tallies of 30-27.

Nicolas Wamba was equally impressive in his fight with Jhonata Diniz in the SuperFight Series co-feature, as he, too, won a wide unanimous decision. Wamba did virtually whatever he pleased inside the ring as he drilled Diniz with strikes from all angles, controlling the pace from the start. Like the main event, Wamba won via scores of 30-27 across the board.

Zinedine Hameur-Lain electrified the French fans by destroying Freddy Kemayo in the opening round. After sizing Kemayo up, Hameur-Lain unloaded a vicious right hook-right high kick combo that knocked him senseless. The end came officially at the 2:35 mark.

Former featherweight world champion Serhiy Adamchuk was solid in his match against Dylan Salvador and crept ever close to another chance at regaining his title. Adamchuk was as elusive as ever and won a unanimous decision with scores of 30-27 (thrice) and 29-28 (twice).

Also on the card, Marat Grigorian took out Antonio Gomez with a sensational left knee to the body at 2:02 of the second and Remy Vectol defeated Francois Ambang via unanimous nod (30-27 x3, 29-28 x2).
