Giorgio Petrosyan is set to make his return to Glory on November 6, 2015 in Monza, Italy atGlory 25. The man welcoming “The Doctor” back to the Glory ring is young gun Josh Jauncey.
Petrosyan has not fought for Glory since Glory 12 on November of 2013 where he lost for only the second time in his career. Fighting in the Glory Lightweight Tournament, Petrosyan was knocked out by Andy Ristie in stunning fashion. Since the loss Petrosyan has fought only three times with all of them ending in victories. He defeated Erkan Varol, Enriko Kehl, and most recently Xu Yan.
Jauncey has taken the Kickboxing world by storm since debuting in 2014. He has gone 4-1 with three of his wins coming by knockout. He last competed at Glory 22 this past June in the lightweight tournament where he won his semi-final bout against Djime Coulibaly by (T)KO, but came up short in a decision to Sittichai Sitsongpeenong in the tournament finals.
Giorgio Petrosyan vs. Josh Jauncey should be an intriguing to fans. Petrosyan has proven to be a difficult puzzle to solve for many of the world’s elite fighters. Jauncey will be looking to show that he has arrived on the elite level and can not only hang with them but beat them.
