The highly-anticipated showdown between Remy Bonjasky (76-14, 40 KO's) and Tyrone Spong (68-6-1 42 KO's) will now take place on Saturday, March 23 at the Excel Arena in London, England, it was announced today by Glory Sports International (GSI), parent company of the Glory World Series.

The bout had previously been set for February 16 but with Bonjasky being set to participate in the GLORY 4 - TOKYO: GRAND SLAM 16-man mega-tournament on New Year's Eve, it was decided that February would potentially be too soon for him to get back in the ring. He will now have several more weeks to recover from his tournament bouts and get in peak condition for his first-time meeting with Spong.

"Remy was more than happy to take part in the tournament and then fight again in February," explains GLORY Chairman Pierre Andurand. "But this is the first time that he and Spong will have fought and there was such huge interest in the match when we announced it that we decided to move the date and give him some time to rest up. It means that he and Spong will be in peak condition when they face each other."

Marcus Luer, Managing Director of GLORY, added, "The worldwide interest in Spong vs. Bonjasky has been absolutely huge. Within literally minutes of it being announced we were inundated with requests for tickets and broadcast details.

"With this fight being of such magnitude to fans worldwide, we want both fighters to be at their absolute best for this historic first meeting. They now have a few extra weeks to sharpen their weapons for what is expected to be a truly classic encounter."

I am looking forward to this fight. The delay sucks but it makes sense to give Remy time to be at his best.

Thanks!! Phone Post

Great fight but bonjasky is pretty big guy, i wish tyrone could get higher profile kickboxing fights below 205, but theirs not alot of big names at his best weight.

Will be pulling for tyrone.

I think Spong will win as his hands are considerably better, but Remy's a bad dood!! Phone Post

Was bonjasky not forces to quit due to eye injury and risk of getting blind?

Oh well.. Prob made it worth it..

Interesting matchup.. Hope he remy is in good shape but afraid spong is just too much and be a walk over... That would be disappointing...

Winner of this vs manhoef :) Phone Post
