Giorgio Petrosyan -- among the best pound-for-pound fighters in kickboxing -- retained his GLORY middleweight title when he went toe-to-toe with top 10-ranked contender Hafid El Boustati in the main event of GLORY 7, which took place last Saturday night (April 20, 2013) at the Mediolanum Forum in Milan, Italy.
Petrosyan cruised to a decision win with ease and was never in any kind of real trouble throughout the fight, as evidenced by our live coverage from MMAmania.com kickboxing correspondent Peter Lampasona:
Hafid tries to let his hands go but gets slipped and countered with an uppercut. Hafid runs directly into a knee trying to crowd his man. Hafid trying to turn this into a brawl but he can't get it going. Hafid gets put against the ropes and eats two punches and a knee. Hafid just has no answer. He's getting more frusterated and swinging for the fences and just getting countered more by Petrosyan.
Petrosyan wins, as expected, but who do you want to see him fight next? To skip the full fight video and just catch the highlights, see below.
