ALL FIGHTERS ON WEIGHT FOR GLORY 7 MILAN. WORLD NO. 1 RANKED LIGHTWEIGHT GIORGIO PETROSYAN PROMISES TO MAKE HAFID EL BOUSTATI “EAT HIS WORDS." HEAVYWEIGHT PROSPECTS RICO VERHOEVEN AND JHONATA DINIZ CLASH ON MAIN CARD.

Milan, Italy (April 19, 2013) - Giorgio Petrosyan (77-1-1, 35 KO's) and Hafid El Boustati (67-7-3, 19 KO's) came face to face at today's official GLORY 7 MILAN weigh-ins, which saw all the fighters make weight at the first attempt.
Words have gone back and forth between the two in recent weeks, with the normally unflappable Petrosyan taking great offence at El Boustati describing him as "a rabbit who is scared of the fight."

"I don't know where he got this from," snapped Petrosyan. "We will see on Saturday night who is running like a rabbit. He will eat his words."

The staredown between co-main event fighters Robin van Roosmalen (28-5-0, 19 KO's) and Murthel Groenhart (53-14-3, 29 KO's) was intense, with neither wanting to break away first. GLORY officials separated them today but on Saturday night they will be let off the leash.

The two top lightweights headline Saturday night's event in Milan, Italy with Petrosyan defending his world number one ranking and El Boustati looking to make a huge impact on his official GLORY debut.

Tense silence surrounded the staredown between heavyweight prospects Rico Verhoeven (38-9-0, 10 KO's) and Jhonata Diniz (7-3-0, 4 KO's), who had an outstanding performance against Daniel Ghita in the 2012 Heavyweight Grand Slam. With both being proven knockout artists and hotly tipped for big things in the future, this fight is unlikely to go the distance.
