Nieky Holzken vs. Yoann Kongolo set for Glory 29

Nieky Holzken vs. Yoann Kongolo

Glory 29 will take place in Copenhagen, Denmark on Saturday, April 16th. The main event will feature the Glory Welterweight Champion Nieky Holzken vs. Yoann Kongolo.

Holzken has long been considered the best fighter in his weight class. His last title defense came at Glory 26 where he kept his title after a controversial split decision win. Holzken has not lost since 2012 and is undefeated in the Glory ring.

Kongolo is a Swiss striker that has recently caught fans attention with wins over Cedric Doumbe and Karapet Karapetyan for Glory. His last victory was a unanimous decision over Karapetyan at Glory 26. The bout with Holzken will be a step up in competition for Kongolo as this is clearly the stiffest test of his career.

A 4-man heavyweight contender tournament is also expected to take place at Glory 29, although the competitors have not been confirmed. Glory 29 will air live on ESPN 3 and via tape delay on ESPN 2.
