New to the kickboxing world is Wayne Barrett as he’s set to challenge Mike Lemaire for GLORY’s debut in NYC. The two will meet in a superfight.
Barrett is a former Georgia State Golden Gloves amateur boxing champion and MMA fighter since the age of 10. He made his pro debut in February with a second round finish. His amateur career saw him go 19-1.
Lemaire took three wins in one day to become the Road To GLORY USA middleweight tournament championship and earn a multi-year contract with GLORY. Two of those wins came by knockout. He’s 9-1 as a professional.
GLORY 9 is June 22 from the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York, NY. A one night light heavyweight tournament is set for majority of the card. Tyrone Spong will be in the tournament and is considered a favorite.
