Glory Tournament: Combat at the Capitale March 22, 2013

F

 

ormer World Champion, LOUIS NEGLIA, has done it again-putting together another of the best Kickboxing Shows in the New York area as his Combat at the Capitale returned to the landmark Capitale Event Center in the heart of Chinatown on Friday, 3/22/13.

This EVENT, in addition to featuring his exciting Professional and Amateur Kickboxing, Muay Tai and K-1 Bouts, was the venue for the ROAD TO GLORY 170 pound welterweight division tournament.

The ROAD TO GLORY is the premier Kick Boxing League in Europe and Asia and has now come to the United States looking for our best Kickboxers to compete worldwide in their Superfight Tournament Events.

The entire evening featured great matchmaking, a sellout, standing room only, jammed packed crowd and plenty of action to go around. This is how you put on a Show-action, action and more action.  The media in attendance all agreed that this event was one of the absolute premier kickboxing shows ever.

There were so many highlights, one doesn't know where to begin.

The ROAD TO GLORY Bouts featured lightning fast KO's, killer body shot combo's and crazy slugfests as 8 of the top kickboxers in the nation in the 170 pound division fought in a 1 night elimination tournament until 1 winner was left standing at the end of the night.

In the ROAD TO GLORY Championship Bout, the Main Event and Final Bout of the evening, FRANCOIS AMBANG from Virginia was the upset knockout winner over New York's own and world ranked, Brett Halvichek. The Bout was stopped at 41 seconds of the second round when Francois pinned Bret in the corner and unleashed a barrage of left and right punches resulting in the referee moving in and stopping the fight.

An emotional Francois was presented the winner's purse of $21,000. He was visibly humbled by the win-this being the highest purse he has ever won in his professional career. He will now be moving on to the next round of GLORY Superfight Events in their international tournament. Other purses presented that night were $9,000 for 2nd place to Brett Halvichek and $4,000 each to the 3rd and 4th place finishers.

Lou said that the fighters were truly deserving of the prizes for their ability and the sacrifices that brought them into the Ring that evening.

LOUIS NEGLIA was certainly proud that GLORY selected him to be running these tournaments-to find the best United States kickboxers to move on and compete on their worldwide stage.

The other results that evening were as follows:
