A quartet of heavy hitters round out the GLORY 66 PARIS Superfight Series card. 

In the heavyweight division, Tomas Mozny (20-8-1, 6 KO’s) enters the ring against France’s Nordine Mahieddine (21-10, 14 KO’s).

And in the light-heavyweight division, Brazil’s Felipe Micheletti (15-7, 5 KO’s) faces Latvia’s Artur Gorlov (23-8, 10 KO’s). 

Mozny, ‘The Slovakian Giant’, carries a 2-2 GLORY record into the fight and is coming off a split-decision loss to Jahfarr Wilnis at GLORY 62.

Mahieddine is making his first GLORY appearance since GLORY 35, where he lost a decision to fellow French heavyweight Nicolas Wamba. 

Since then Mahieddine has competed internationally and most recently was the finalist in an eight-man tournament in the Netherlands.

Michelleti debuted at GLORY 60 with a win over Zinedine Hameur-Lain, thereby immediately entering himself into the light-heavyweight contender conversation. 

Gorlov’s last fight was also against Hameur-Lain, but Gorlov found himself coming out of it with a DQ loss after a clinch on the ropes aggravated a back injury Hameur-Lain carried into the fight and rendered him unable to continue. 

GLORY 66 PARIS takes place Saturday, June 22 at the Zenith Paris in Paris, France.
