Giorgio Petrosyan vs. Jiao Fukai has been confirmed for the January 23rd WLF event in China.
Petrosyan (@petrosyandoctor) will get a start to his year early as he looks to expand his current four fight win streak to five. He was last in action at Glory 25 this past November when he defeated Josh Jauncey by unanimous decision. Fans are waiting for Petrosyan to fight for the Glory lightweight championship, so there is always risk when he takes a fight outside of Glory. He has to be considered the favorite against Fukai, but in a fight anything can happen.
Fukai has experience against some top fighters, although he has not collected the big win that would put his name on everyone’s radar. He has been in the ring with the likes of Andy Souwer, Victor Nagbe, and Chris Ngimbi.
