In the GLORY 60 SuperFight Series headliner, Frenchman Zinedine Hameur-Lain (60-15, 38 KO’s) welcomed Brazilian Felipe Micheletti (14-7, 4 KO’s) to the GLORY ring in a light heavyweight affair.
Micheletti scored with a push kick to the midsection of Hameur-Lain to open the contest. The Brazilian then delivered a right hand that Hameur-Lain wore well.
Micheletti applied pressure, but Hameur-Lain was able to split the guard with a right hand. The pace of Hameur-Lain was tempered and he slipped on a kick attempt along the ropes, before taking time to get back to his feet.
Micheletti backed Hameur-Lain into the corner late in the round, unleashing multiple left hands that appeared to hurt the Frenchman.
Between rounds, Hameur-Lain complained of an injury and the fight was halted, much to the dismay of the French crowd.
Hameur-Lain was in obvious pain, holding his right hip area. The loss snapped Hameur-Lain’s winning streak and catapults Micheletti into the contention in the light heavyweight division.
“It’s a dream. I’m very happy. Today was my day,” said the victorious Micheletti.
