Igor Jurković delighted many spectators at the Zagreb Arena when he defeated Michael Duut at “Glory 14”. It seems he also quite impressed the management of the world's best kickboxing organization.

Therefore, unsurprisingly, Glory management decided to schedule Igor's next match at Glory’s 16th event that will take place in Denver.

This is means more great news for the Istrian fighter this week after the publication of Glory's ranking lists where Igor is No. 9 in -95kg category. If he wants to climb higher he will have to defeat Russian fighter Artem Vakhitov who is to be his next opponent.

Artem Vakhitov is not very experienced fighter when it comes to professional fighting. In his career he scored ten victories and four defeats. So far he fought twice at Glory's events where he defeated Pagonis and Tavares. However, this Russian fighter had a lot of success in amateur league.

The main match at Glory 16 will be the one for the welterweight title between Nieky Holzken and Marc de Bont.
