GLORY has signed Lithuanian light-heavyweight prospect Sergej Maslobojev to a long-term, multi-fight deal.
Maslobojev will debut at the upcoming GLORY 68 MIAMI event on Saturday, September 28 against John King (pictured) of Texas, USA.
Nicknamed ‘Kuvalda’ (‘Sledgehammer’), Maslobojev trains and fights out of the Lithuanian capital city of Vilnius, where he is a gym owner.
Among his career credits are multiple national, Baltic-region and European championships as well as world titles with the WKA and WAKO.
His professional victories include wins over GLORY veterans Antonio Plazibat and Stephane Susperregui.
His amateur record includes a 2013 decision win in Brazil over a then-unknown Alex Pereira, who would go on to become GLORY middleweight champion in 2018.
Outside of his training schedule, Maslobojev maintains an active presence in his local community, regularly taking part in charity events for children’s homes and juvenile delinquents. He also undertakes training seminars for members of the Lithuanian Armed Forces.
GLORY 68 MIAMI takes place Saturday, September 28 at the James L Knight Center in downtown Miami, Florida.
