The penultimate bout of the GLORY 56 SuperFight Series featured a heavyweight match-up between D’Angelo Marshall (17-3, 9 KO’s) and newcomer Antonio Dvorak (6-2, 3 KO’s).
After trading jabs, Dvorak closed the distance and landed a short right hand. Marshall responded with a knee to the midsection of the larger fighter.
Dvorak fired off a knee of his own to pin Marshall against the ropes, but only briefly. Marshall flurried, landing an uppercut that prompted Dvorak to fall to his knees.
It was ruled a slip by the referee, but the sequence would soon repeat itself when Marshall scored with another right hand. This time, however, the referee began a count and quickly waved off the contest as Dvorak could not continue.
“He came in hard, came to fight. I had to be careful, but I caught him,” said Marshall of his stoppage win.
Asked about a potential match-up with Jamal Ben Saddik, Marshall stated he’s ready for anything GLORY has to offer.
“I want that fight, the people want that fight, so come on Jamal - let’s do it,” he said.
