GLORY

GLORY continues its world tour with a return to Istanbul this spring.

He's back!

Top heavyweight kickboxer Gokhan Saki will return to the ring later this spring for GLORY 15, which was recently made official for the Ulker Sports Arena in Istanbul, Turkey, on April 12, 2014. The event is expected to air on SPIKE TV.

No opponent has been named at this time; however, an announcement is expected in the coming weeks.

Saki (97-17) is 5-2 under the GLORY banner. After stopping Daniel Ghita at GLORY 6 in Istanbul, "The Rebel" dropped a disappointing unanimous decision to evential tournament winner Rico Verhoeven at GLORY 11 in the outskirts of Chicago, Illinois.

But it's hard to keep a good man down.

GLORY 15 will also feature the finals of the light heavyweight tournament, which kicks off this March in Zagreb, Croatia, on a card headlined by Mirko "Cro Cop" vs. Remy Bonjasky (details).
