One of the best heavyweights – strikers in the post-Soviet space. Under his most powerful blows, many strong fighters fell, and star rivals experienced considerable difficulties in battles with the Latvian puncher.
For his aggressive and spectacular style, Kostya Glukhov was invited to their tournaments by leading European organizations. Including the French PFC, Pancrace Fighting Championship. Konstantin took part in the tournament-four, where the belt of the organization’s heavyweight champion was played. In his debut fight, Konstantin met with the Lithuanian striker Arnold Oborotov, who had many champion titles in Thai boxing and kickboxing.
After a short fight in the stance, to the surprise of many, Kostya made a powerful throw and unscrewed his opponent’s foot.
In the final of the tournament, his rival was a powerful Dutchman, three-time European karate champion Jesse Gibbs, who is well known to our viewers from the fight with Alexander Emelianenko and performances for the Netherlands national team at the M-1 Challenge world team championship. Kostya knocked him down with his signature blow to the liver and won the PFC championship belt.
The next fight in this organization for Glukhov took place two years later, she held tournaments extremely rarely. And this time Konstantin had to defend his championship belt. And his rival was the famous fighter of the old school, the older brother of Alistair Overeem Valentine, nicknamed Python. By that time, Overeem Sr. had 59 professional fights at the highest level, including fights in Pride FC, M-1 and K-1.
So, Kostya managed to defend his champion belt.
So, Kostya managed to defend his champion belt. But a year later, the rivals will meet in revenge and again Glukhov will knock out his venerable opponent in the first round. Unfortunately, I could not find the video of this fight on the Internet. If you succeed, our dear viewers, we will be grateful for the link in the comments. All the best to you and stay healthy!
