As announced earlier, the main event will feature a Light Heavyweight title fight between current champion Sergej Maslobojev and number one-ranked contender Donegi Abena.
The co-main event will feature a title fight in the Middleweight division, with champion Donovan Wisse defending his belt against top contender Cesar Almeida.
Also featured on the card will be the return of fan-favorite Mohammed Jaraya. The event will mark Jaraya’s first appearance inside the GLORY since December of 2019, when he beat Masaro Glunder at COLLISION 2. The Morrocan fighter signed a new multi-fight contract with the promotion earlier this year, and fans were wondering when he will step back into the ring. He will meet Chris Wunn in a catchweight bout.
Two top-five Middleweights clash, as Serkan Ozcaglayan and Sergej Braun will meet in a bout with potential title implications on the line. Ozcaglayan has rebounded with a TKO victory over Juri De Sousa at GLORY 82, while Braun put together a nearly flawless promotional debut at COLLISION 4, where he defeated Michael Boapeah. The German fighter is a former Kyokushin Karate fighter, where he won numerous titles at the European Championship and placed highly in the World Championship.
Additionally, No. 2 Lightweight contender Guerric Billet will fight the division’s No. 5 contender Cihad Akipa, and promotional newcomers Uku Jürjendal and Nabil Khachab will clash in a Heavyweight match.
Plus, Jos Van Belzen will square off against Robin Ciric in a Welterweight contest.
GLORY 83 will be streamed live on Videoland in the Netherlands. For viewing information outside of the Netherlands, visit GLORYKickboxing.com.
