Tyrone Spong, "The Fight Professor" Stephen Quadros, and TV host Kristal Hart.
These interviews were conducted Thursday at the media workout for the Glory 9 kickboxing card, which takes place this Saturday, June 22, at the Hammerstein Ballroom at 311 West 34th Street in Manhattan.
On that card, Tyrone Spong will be fighting in an eight-man, light heavyweight tournament featuring the best light heavyweights in Glory. Stephen Quadros will be a television commentator for this card, which will be televised on tape delay in the U.S. on the CBS Sports Network, and also televised in other countries, and live as an online pay-per-view on the Glory web site at http://gloryworldseries.com/en/events/live.
Even though he is a favorite to win the tournament, Tyrone Spong is taking nothing for granted.
"No fight is easy. A fight is a fight. Anything can happen," he said in this interview.
"I'm not taking this tournament lightly. This is all the top level strikers in the world. I'm just well-prepared and I'm looking forward to it."
Asked which fighter in the tournament he is focusing upon, he replied, "I think the fighter that I have to pay the most attention to is my first opponent, 'cause that's the guy I'm fighting first, so I'm just focused on him."
We also discussed with them the importance of this card being held in New York, the potential for kickboxing as a spectator sport in the U.S., and much more.
