Knockout! Tyrone Spong vs Remy Bonjasky full fight video highlights from GLORY 5 in London

The heavyweight kickboxing torch was passed this weekend in London, England, when Tyrone "King of the Ring" Spong stopped all-time great Remy Bonjasky in the second round of the GLORY 5: "London" main event. Now you can watch the full fight video of Tyrone Spong vs Remy Bonjasky above.

World Series of Fighting (WSOF) was not the only combat sports show in action this weekend (Sat., March 23, 2013) with Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) on momentary mixed martial arts (MMA) hiatus.

GLORY World Series held its fifth installment, which it dubbed "London," at ExCel Arena in London, England, featuring a main event that pit the old school versus the new when three-time K-1 World Grand Prix kickboxing champion Remy Bonjasky attempted to thwart the abusive rise of hard-hitting Tyrone Spong.

Spong, who moonlights as an MMA fighter on the WSOF roster -- he stopped Travis Bartlett with a knockout in his Nov. 2012 debut -- needed just 1.5 rounds to dispatch of the all-time great. "King of the Ring," who was stepping up in weight, stalked the "The Flying Gentleman" for most of the bout, trading heavy kicks with the legend and pounding away with body shots.

Bonjasky often found himself pinned up against the ropes or in the corners, countering, circling out and attempting to keep Spong at bay with leg kicks. However, midway through the second frame, Spong found a home for a crushing overhand right that crumpled Bonjasky to his knees (watch the slo-mo .gif here).

Before the referee even finished counting him out, Spong was already celebrating, knowing that Bonjasky would not be able to continue after getting completely throttle. He had this to say about his decisive victory after the fight:

"Remy Bonjasky is a legend in the sport. It was a hard fight and I know now why he was such a dominant champion. Now I am looking forward to my next challenge, I want to build my legacy in this sport and I am ready to take on anyone in the heavyweight division. In two weeks there's a fight between Gokhan Saki and Daniel Ghita at GLORY 6 in Istanbul. I want to fight both of those guys and I'm also ready to go straight in to a heavyweight title shot against Semmy Schilt. Whatever GLORY wants, I'm ready."

So are we, Tyrone, so are we.
