They don’t call Tyrone Spong the ‘King of the Ring’ for nothing.

He started his career as a middleweight and has steadily climbed through the weight categories over the years, winning numerous titles along the way. Among the belts that have been strapped around his waist are the WKN European middleweight title, the WPKL European middleweight title, the WFCA Thai Boxing cruiserweight title and the It's Showtime World 95MAX championship.

Born in Suriname and raised in Amsterdam, Spong is one of the most naturally athletic kickboxers in the world and he is known for a fluid and very technical style. He has a devoted following, having knocked out more than forty fellow fighters in the ring. Despite his many achievements he is just 26 years old and is now entering his physical prime.

Spong currently resides in Florida and numbers UFC stars Alistair Overeem and Rashad Evans among his training partners. His 2010 fight with Overeem in the final Grand Prix staged by FEG-owned K-1 was a demonstration of his potential at heavyweight. Now he is committed exclusively to GLORY and is one of the many standout talents that form the organisation’s heaviest weight division.

In the fight that preceded his signing for GLORY, Spong stopped the renowned Peter Aerts to take his biggest win to date. Aerts is one of many eminent names to be found on the GLORY roster and there are also numerous rising stars like Spong. His toughest fights are yet to come.
