Tyrone Spong's Kickboxing Match With Remy Bonjasky Moved to March
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 11.24.2012



Glory Sports International announced yesterday in an official press release that the fight between Remy Bonjasky and Tyrone Spong is now set for Saturday, March 23 at the Excel Arena in London, England.

The bout was originally set for February 16, but now that Bonjasky is set to participate in GLORY 4: Tokyo Grand Slam and the 16-man mega-tournament on New Year's Eve. It was decided that February would be too soon to get Bonjasky back in the ring. He will now have several more weeks to recover from his tournament bouts to get into peak condition for the fight with Spong.

GLORY Chairman Pierre Anduran stated: "Remy was more than happy to take part in the tournament and then fight again in February. But this is the first time that he and Spong will have fought and there was such huge interest in the match when we announced it that we decided to move the date and give him some time to rest up. It means that he and Spong will be in peak condition when they face each other."

Marcus Luer, Managing Director of GLORY stated: "The worldwide interest in Spong vs. Bonjasky has been absolutely huge. Within literally minutes of it being announced we were inundated with requests for tickets and broadcast details. With this fight being of such magnitude to fans worldwide, we want both fighters to be at their absolute best for this historic first meeting. They now have a few extra weeks to sharpen their weapons for what is expected to be a truly classic encounter."

Tickets for the March 23 event will go on sale soon, and the rest of the card will also be announced.
