Tafa: “I don’t just KO people, I put them to sleep"
Thursday, Oct 12 2017 by John O'Regan
Young heavyweight Junior Tafa has been described as one of the best prospects in kickboxing at present.
A protege of legendary warrior Mark Hunt, the 21-year-old sports an impressive 17-0 record with no less than 13 wins by knockout on it.
Tafa was scouted by Hunt as a 17-year-old and for the last four years has travelled extensively with his fellow Samoan-heritage fighter as part of his entourage.
On Saturday, Tafa will make his debut for GLORY in the co-main event of GLORY 46 CHINA in Guangzhou, China. He says he brings the kind of knockouts that “don’t just knock people out, they put people to sleep.”
The world's premier kickboxing league, GLORY World Series maintains six different weight classes. Fights take place both as single matches between two fighters known as 'superfights') and as part of tournaments.
Four-man tournaments are the standard, with eight-man tournaments also staged on occasion. The tournaments take one of two forms: either they are World Championship Tournaments, with the division's world title on the line, or they are 'Contender' tournaments, with the winner earning a spot in the next upcoming World Championship Tournaments.
All Glory World Series matches and events are organized under the auspices of and with the consent of the Glory Sports International and are subjects to the GLORY World Series regulations.
