Friday, Dec 08 2017
Michael Duut and Danyo Ilunga staged GLORY’s ‘Fight of the Year’ 2016, as voted for by GLORY fans. Now they are set to run it back this Saturday night at GLORY REDEMPTION in Rotterdam, Netherlands.
“GLORY called me and they wanted to have this fight again. I was like oh, you guys are f—ked up man!” laughs Ilunga. “But I was like OK, I liked it, it was a good fight, so let’s do it.”
Duut says that the fight was “one of my favorite fights, my best fight I think”. He won the encounter to put himself 1-1 against Ilunga and now they are about to settle their trilogy.
