Paul Daley has been confirmed to be fighting in a Kickboxing bout for Glory at Bellator 142: Dynamite for quite some time now, however, no opponent had been announced. Glory Welterweight Champion Nieky Holzken issued a challenge Daley a few weeks prior to winning his title at Glory 23 this past weekend and it got fans talking about the potential match up. Yesterday the plans for the Holzken vs. Daley match up were squashed when it was announced that Daley would be facing Fernando Gonzalez.
Daley is no stranger to the Kickboxing ring as he spent most of 2014 competing in the sport. Daley has amassed a 20-3 record in Kickboxing with 14 of those wins coming by knockout.Like Daley, Gonzalez is no stranger to striking only, he has competed in Muay Thai for WCK Muay Thai and has also done his fair share of boxing.
This is the fourth Kickboxing bout confirmed for the event and joins the two title fights already scheduled for the event of Saulo Cavalari vs. Zack Mwekassa and Gabriel Varga vs. Serhiy Adamchuck.
Bellator 142: Dynamite will take place on September 19 at the SAP Center in San Jose, CA. The event will feature both MMA and Kickboxing bouts with a cage and a ring set up at the venue.
