Ross ‘Turbo’ Levine was born in Brooklyn, New York to a martial arts family: his father was a former kickboxing and his older brother had a passion for Taekwondo . Levine followed in their footsteps by taking up karate and TKD at the age of seven. By the age of 15 he was a black belt and by 16 he started making a name for himself as a sport karate competitor.
In the years that followed Levine won multiple titles and championships with organizations such as the North American Sport Karate Association (NASKA), World Karate Commission (WKC) World Champion, the World Association of Kickboxing Organization (WAKO) World Championships and the Irish Open. These successes prompted him to turn his passion into a professional career. A win in his pro debut by knockout made Levine certain he had taken the right step and when he subsequently received a call-up from GLORY, the world’s premier stand-up fighting league, he knew for sure.
Levine is no stranger to GLORY talent – his long-time rival Raymond Daniels previously competed for the GLORY World Welterweight Championship. With his sights set high, that is the goal Levine strives to accomplish. He steps into the ring to face Justin Greskiewicz at GLORY 67 Orlando on Friday, July 5.
