Tyrone Spong vs Remy Bonjasky Glory 5 weighHeadline heavyweights Tyrone Spong (68-6-1 42 KO’s) and Remy Bonjasky (77-15, 40 KO’s) got nose-to-nose at Friday’s official weigh-ins for GLORY 5 LONDON.

Their face-off had an extra level of intensity added to it as Spong arrived late for the weigh-in and kept Bonjasky standing around waiting. The decorated veteran felt he had not been afforded the respect he deserved and Spong received a good dose of evil eye as he finally strolled in to take the scales.

Also on the scales were top British talents Liam Harrison (67-13-2, 38 KO’s) and Jordan Watson (29-5-1, 14 KO’s), who were bang on weight for their main card clashes tomorrow night. Harrison’s Dutch-Moroccan opponent Mosab ‘Jaguar’ Amrani (48-7-4, 14 KO’s) made weight with no issues but Australian KO artist ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Moxon (29-4-1, 16 KO’s) was 100 grams over and had to go for a short jog around the block to get rid of the excess. “I should have cut my hair,” he quipped.

Bonjasky wasn’t the only fighter initially left solo beside the scales. Top lightweight (70 kilos/155lbs) contender Albert ‘The Hurricane’ Kraus (72-15-3, 43 KO’s) weighed in but had nobody to stare down with because scheduled opponent Andy Ristie (36-2-1, 20 KO’s), a Suriname national based in the Netherlands, hit last-minute visa problems and had to withdraw.

Kraus now faces Warren Stevelmans (64-16-4, 20 KO’s), who had been set to face French prodigy Johann Fauveau (26-2-1, 16 KO’s) on the undercard. Fauveau will now make his GLORY debut against London-based Romanian import Pasniciuc Constantin.

GLORY 5 LONDON takes place at the ExCel Arena, London, England on Saturday March 23.
