The French contingent continues to grow at GLORY following the addition of four new and exciting names to the roster.

Cyril Benzaquen (57-12-3), Bobo Sacko (75-6-1, 29 KO), Mehdi Ait El Hadj (31-4-2, 8 KO) and Ramy Deghir (5-1-1, 5 KO) have all put pen to paper to sign multi-fight agreements with GLORY, the world’s number one kickboxing organisation.

Known as one of the biggest names in French kickboxing, Cyril Benzaquen is a high-profile acquisition as he joins the GLORY welterweight division. The 34-year-old has held six world kickboxing titles, including holding the ISKA championship for almost a decade, and will have his sights set on adding a GLORY title to his already impressive resume.

Also joining him in GLORY is the experienced Bobo Sacko. Having competed all over the world and registering career wins over Liam Harrison, Chad Collins, & Jimmy Vienot, the 35-year-old brings his hard hitting Muay Thai style to GLORY for the very first time.

In addition, rising French-Moroccan star Mehdi Ait El Hadj (31-4-2, 8 KO) enters the welterweight division while the explosive prospect Ramy Deghir (5-1-1, 5 KO) comes into the middleweight division ready to put on a show.

GLORY already boasts a roster filled with several French stars including Diaguely Camara, Sarah Moussaddak, Pascal Toure, and Sofian Laïdouni, who will compete against Rico Verhoeven in the opening round of the GLORY Heavyweight Grand Prix on March 9.
