PEREIRA COMES IN AS THE UNDERDOGAND THE DARK HORSE

IN THIS TOURNAMENT,BUT THIS GUY IS ALL ABOUT POWER.

HE HAS A BOXING-STYLE DEFENSE

THAT KIND OF CONFUSESHIS OPPONENTS,

AGGRESSIVE BOXER, AND HE HASONE OF THE LONGEST REACHES

IN THE DIVISION, BUT, DUKE,

HE'S GOT THE POWERTO GO WITH IT.

AS YOU CAN SEE, HE'S TRYING TOTAKE ADVANTAGE OF IT THERE.

- LEVIN TRAINS WITH A LOT OFTHE TOP BOXERS IN RUSSIA

AND NOW PROFESSIONALS,AMATEURS,

SO HE'S GOT A GOOD PEDIGREEOF BOXING.

I'VE SEEN HIM CHANGEHIS GUARD ALREADY.

I KNOW THAT HE'S COGNIZANTOF PEREIRA'S RIGHT HAND,

BECAUSE HE'S GOING WITHA LITTLE TIGHTER GUARD

THAN HE NORMALLY FIGHTS WITH,

AND HE'S SMOTHERING TO NOT GIVEROOM FOR THE STRAIGHT RIGHT.

- NOW, REMEMBER,IN THE GLORY QUARTERFINALS,

TWO KNOCKDOWNS IN A ROUND,THREE KNOCKDOWNS IN A BOUT.

THAT WILL TERMINATE THE BOUTAND RESULT IN EITHER

A KO OR A TKO.

ARTEM LEVIN HAS SOMETHINGTO PROVE TONIGHT.

HIS LAST TOURNAMENT,WE REMEMBER,

A UNANIMOUS DECISION LOSTTO JOE SCHILLING AT GLORY 10

IN A FINALSSUDDEN VICTORY ROUND.

HE SAYS HE ONLY SLIPPED,BUT IT WAS RULED A KNOCKDOWN.

HE'S LOOKING FOR REVENGE TONIGHT

AND PROVE HIMSELF THAT HE IS

THE NUMBER ONE RANKEDMIDDLEWEIGHT IN GLORY.

- FIGHT!

- THERE'S THAT RIGHT HAND.

HE BROUGHT HIS BACK, LEVIN.

- JUST MISSING WITH THE STRAIGHTIS PEREIRA.

COMBINATION FOLLOWED BY KNEESTO THE BODY.

AGAIN, FIGHTERS CAN ONLY CLINCHIF YOU ATTACK IMMEDIATELY

WITH A KNEE.

- ARTEM LEVIN SHOWINGJUST HOW QUICK HE IS.

- THAT WAS A TASTY SLIP.

HE SLIPPED THE JAB,PUT HIS HEAD--

NORMALLY,YOU GO TO THE RIGHT.

HE WENT TO THE LEFT AND CAMEOVER WITH HIS OWN RIGHT HAND.

HE CAME BACK WITH A HOOK.

- UNDER A MINUTE TO GO,ROUND NUMBER ONE,

LEVIN AND PEREIRA.

LOW KICK FROM LEVIN.

INTERESTING HOW LEVINWILL PUSH PEREIRA BACK

AND THEN GO FOR THAT UPPERCUT.

JUST MISSED.

- WELL, LEVIN IS PUSHINGAND SMOTHERING THE RIGHT HAND.

AGAIN, LEVIN IS PLAYING CHESS,

LIKE THE RUSSIANS ARE KNOWNTO DO ON THE CHESSBOARD,

AND HE'S DOING IT WITH HIS BODYAND A METHODICAL FIGHTING STYLE

THAT SMOTHERING THE STYLEOF PEREIRA.

YOU MAY REMEMBER PEREIRA,

HE WON THE GLORY 14 MIDDLEWEIGHTCONTENDER TOURNAMENT

WITH A WICKED KNOCKDOWNOF DUSTIN JACOBY

AND THAT DECISION OVERSAHAK PARPARYAN IN THE FINAL.

THAT WAS HIS GLORY DEBUT,DUKE.

- AND IT WASA GREAT PERFORMANCE.

AGAIN, WHAT HE NEEDS TO DOIS GO FORWARD.

HE CAN'T GO AWAY AGAINST LEVIN.

LEVIN HAS TOO MANY WEAPONS.

HE NEEDS TO BACK LEVIN UPAND MAKE DEFENSIVE.

- LEVIN GOES HIGH AND THENFOLLOWS IT UP WITH A KNEE

AND THE SPINNING BACK FIST.

PEREIRA SHAKES IT OFFAS NOTHING.

STRAIGHT FROM PEREIRA,MISSING WITH THE HOOK,

MISSES AGAIN.

LEVIN MAKES HIM PAYWITH THE BODY SHOT.

- I ENJOY THE WAY LEVIN FIGHTS.

HE COMES FROM A TRADITIONALMUAY THAI BACKGROUND,

BUT YOU CAN SEEHE STARTED BOXING.

HE'S PUT IN HIS SPIN MOVES.

HE'S REALLY EVOLVEDINTO GLORY KICKBOXING.

- AND LEVIN STYLE IS JUST BASEDON REALLY IMPECCABLE TIMING,

SHOTS FROM ODD ANGLES.

SOME SAY HIS BASIC DEFENSE WORKIS LIKE FLOYD MAYWEATHER JR.

- WELL, I LIKE TO TALK ABOUTALL THE TIME

IF YOU'RE NOT GETTING HIT,YOU'RE NOT LOSING, YOU KNOW,

SO DEFENSE IS KEY,ESPECIALLY IN STRIKING.

- AND NOW PEREIRA MOVING FORWARDPUSHING THE PACE.

- AH!LET HIM GO.

- FIGHTERS CLINCH, AND REFEREEAL WICHGERS BREAKS THEM UP.

- THAT'S A CAUTION.

ONE MORE TIME YOU HOLD HIM,IT'S GONNA COST YOU A POINT.

UNDER ONE MINUTE TO GOIN ROUND NUMBER TWO.

PEREIRA HAS BEEN FIRING WILDLY.

HE'S JUST MISSED WITHA LOT OF HOOKS.

IS,MAKE YOU MISS ON THOSE PUNCHES.

IT TIRES YOUR OPPONENT OUT,AND BY BLOCKING THE PUNCHES,

IT'S GIVING PEREIRA A HARD TIMETO FIRE BACK,

IF THAT MAKES SENSE.

HE CAUGHT HIM WITH THAT KNEE,ACTUALLY, TOO.

LOOKS LIKE THE CUTIS RIGHT BELOW THE LEFT EYE

OF ALEX PEREIRA.

LEVIN HAS GOT SOME POWERIN THOSE PUNCHES.

- LEVIN USES A STYLE OF BOXING,IT'S CALLED RUSSIAN BOXING.

THEY RULED THE WORLDIN THE AMATEURS,

AS HE HAS ALREADY BEENKNOCKED DOWN ONCE.

- WELL, AGAIN,WITH THE TOURNAMENT,

IT'S THREE ROUNDS.

HE GOT A 10-8 ROUND MANDATORYWITH THE KNOCKDOWN,

SO THE ONLY WAY THAT MANHOEFCAN WIN IS BY KO

OR DROPPING HIM ONCE,SO HE'S GOT TO PICK IT UP.

- GREAT POINT, DUKE ROUFUS.

FILIP VERLINDEN LOOKINGVERY COMFORTABLE SO FAR.

HE'S--REALLY, HIS KICKSARE A KEY TO HIS FIGHT GAME.

- I GAVE IT TO LEVIN.

THAT '70s SHOW IS A GREAT PLACE,

'CAUSE IT'S BASED IN WISCONSIN,MY HOME STATE.

- [laughs]

LOOK AT THE CUT ON THE BACKOF FILIP VERLINDEN.

- YEAH,HE'S GOT A ROPE BURN.

THAT'S FROM THE FIRST FIGHT.

MANHOEF WAS FORCING HIMON THE ROPES SO HARD

THAT HE GOT ROPE BURNS.

- THAT'S THE POWEROF MELVIN MANHOEF,

KEPT PUSHING HIM UPAGAINST THE ROPES.

- LIKE I SAID,THE LAST MAN STANDING.

WHO IS GONNA BE ABLETO WITHSTAND EVERYTHING,

THE SHIN BUMPS,THE SORE HANDS,

THE KNEES, THE RIBS,THE HEAD, THE CUTS,

THE BUMPS,THE BRUISES?

- COMBINATION FROM ARTEM LEVIN.

- STEP BACK. STEP BACK.STEP BACK.

- AND SOME GOOD DEFENSE THEREFROM VERLINDEN.

THOSE SHOTS DIDN'T DOTOO MUCH DAMAGE.

- STOP!STEP BACK.

- KNEE SHOT GETTING PUSHED OFF.

THE SPEED OF ARTEM LEVINIS REALLY INCREDIBLE,

WHEN YOU SEE HIM MOVEOUT OF THE CLINCH

AND RIGHT INTO EITHER KNEEOR A HOOK,

LIGHTNING QUICK.

- HE FIGHTS LIKE AN ACCORDION.

THE CLOSER HE GETS,HE FITS IN THE RIGHT NOTES,

AND THEN THE FARTHER HE EXPANDS,

HE DOES THE RIGHT TECHNIQUESFROM FARTHER RANGE.

HE HAS GREAT UNDERSTANDINGOF DISTANCE AND RANGE

IN THE KICKBOXING RING.

- STOP.STEP BACK.

STEP.

FIGHT!

- 72% KNOCKDOWN RATIOFOR ARTEM LEVIN.

1 MINUTE TO GOIN ROUND NUMBER TWO.

HIGH KICK AND SPINNING BACK FISTFROM ARTEM LEVIN.

- THAT WAS JUSTAN INCREDIBLE SLIP HE DID THERE,

THEN HE BOBBED AND WEAVEDTHAT SPINNING BACK FIST.

HIS DEFENSE IS AWESOME.

LEVIN,THAT IS.

FILIP VERLINDEN WAS USINGA LOT OF MOVEMENT EARLIER.

HE'S SLOWING DOWN,AS TO BE EXPECTED.

UNDER 30 TO GOIN ROUND NUMBER TWO.

- STOP.STEP BACK.

- ARTEM LEVINWAS ONE OF THOSE FIGHTERS

THAT SAID HE PREPARED FOR ALLTHE FIGHTERS HERE TONIGHT,

JUST NOTHIS FIRST ROUND OPPONENT,

ALEX PEREIRA,WHERE VERLINDEN,

HE SAID HE ONLY PREPAREDFOR MANHOEF,

AND THAT WAS IT.

[bell dings]

- ♪ I GET KNOCKED DOWN,BUT I GET UP AGAIN ♪

- SO WHEN YOU DO THAT, DUKE,

YOU REALLY RELYON YOUR CORNERMEN

IN THE LOCKER ROOMTO GET YOU READY

FOR THAT SEMIFINAL FIGHT,CORRECT?

- OH, FOR SURE.

I MEAN, THAT'S WHY WE BRINGTEAMS OUT WITH THE ATHLETES.

YOU KNOW, REMY BONJASKYTALKED ABOUT ONE OF HIS GUYS

WHEN HE WAS WINNING GRAND PRIXS.

ONE WOULD GO WATCH RINGSIDETHE SCENE

WHICH THE IMAGINE WAS GOING,HOW--THEY'D SEE IT CLOSE.

THEY'D BE WATCHINGON THE TV SCREEN IN THE BACK,

AND THAT'S WHY HE WASA MULTI-TIME CHAMPION.

HE REALLY TOOK A CEREBRAL,SOPHISTICATED APPROACH TO THIS.

JUST NOT GETTING IN THE RINGPUNCHING, KICKING, AND KNEEING.

- THAT'S ONE OF THE BESTIN HIS CORNER,

AS YOU CHECK OUT NICKIE HEMMERS,AND, OF COURSE,

VERLINDEN'S DAD THERE A WELL.

WELL, THAT WASA BACK-AND-FORTH SECOND ROUND,

BUT WHO DID YOU GIVE IT TO?

- I JUST THINK THAT ARTEM LEVINWAS THE BUSIER,

A LITTLE BITMORE AGGRESSIVE FIGHTER,

LANDED THE MORE TELLING BLOWS.

- AGREED.

[bell dings]

THIRD AND FINAL ROUNDIN THIS SEMIFINAL MATCH,

THE GLORY LAST MAN STANDINGMIDDLEWEIGHT TOURNAMENT.

LEVIN IN THE WHITE GLOVES,VERLINDEN IN THE BLACK.

QUICK HOOK JUST MISSESFROM ARTEM LEVIN.

- AND I THINK THAT FILIPSENSES SOME URGENCY.

THAT'S WHY HE'S HEADHUNTINGWITH THE KICKS,

AND I THINK WE'RE GONNA SEE HIMGO FOR IT A LITTLE MORE HERE.

- WE'LL SEE IF LEVINTAKES THE FOOT OFF THE GAS PEDAL

A LITTLE BIT,BUT, YOU KNOW,

AS WE JUST SAW WITH THE JUDGINGIN THAT LAST FIGHT,

YOU NEVER WANT TO LEAVE IT UPTO THE JUDGES.

JUST NEVER KNOW.

- THEY'LL BREAK YOUR HEARTEVERY TIME.

- YES, THEY WILL.

PACE SLOWING DOWN HEREIN THE THIRD ROUND.

LEFT FROM LEVIN.

LEVIN'S STYLE IS JUST--IT'S ALL BASED ON TIMING...

ODD ANGLES.

- YOU CAN TELL HE DOESA LOT OF LIGHT SPARRING,

BECAUSE THAT GIVES HIMTHE ABILITY TO TRY NEW THINGS.

IF YOU'RE DOING A LOTOF HARD SPARRING,

IT MAKES YOU LOOK CONSERVATIVESOMETIMES.

- THOSE HOOKS GETTING CLOSE,

AND THE UPPERCUTFINDING THEIR RANGE.

MIDWAY THROUGHROUND NUMBER THREE.

VERLINDEN CAME IN AS THENUMBER FOUR RANKED MIDDLEWEIGHT,

NUMBER ONE RANKED ARTEM LEVIN.

- LEVIN DOES A GOOD JOB.

HE'S ALWAYS HITTINGAND THINKING ABOUT--

HE KEEPS HIS EYES VERY FOCUSEDON VERLINDEN EYES,

HIS PUNCHES.

HE'S REALLY WATCHINGHIS OPPONENT.

THAT'S WHY HIS DEFENSEIS SO GOOD.

- UNDER A MINUTE TO GO.

FILIP VERLINDEN NEEDS TO DOSOMETHING SPECTACULAR

AND QUICKLY.

BODY SHOT,THEN UPSTAIRS FOR LEVIN.

RELENTLESS PRESSUREFROM ARTEM LEVIN.

- HE DOES A GOOD JOB.HE'LL PUNCH, PUNCH, PUNCH.

HE'LL KNEE,AND HE SMOTHERS YOU,

ESPECIALLY IF YOU'RE TALLER,LIKE HIM.

HE DOES A GOOD JOB OF NEGATINGOTHER GUYS' REACHES REAL WELL.

JOE SCHILLING ADVANCEDTO THE SEMIS

WITH A STUNNING KNOCKOUTIN THE SUDDEN VICTORY ROUND

OVER SIMON MARCUS,

WHILE WAYNE BARRETT KNOCKED OUTBOGDAN STOICA

IN THE THIRD ROUNDOF THEIR QUARTERFINAL BOUT.

- AGAIN, THIS IS GONNA BEA REPLAY OF THE LAST FIGHT.

THE STATS ARE ALMOST THE SAME.

WHAT IT COMES DOWN TO,WHO'S THE FRESHEST GUY?

JOE WON BY KNOCKOUT,BUT IT WENT FOUR ROUNDS.

WAYNE'S GOT THE HUGE BUMPON HIS HEAD,

AND THAT'S GONNA SEEWHAT'S GONNA GET THIS GUY

INTO THE FINALS.

- SEMIFINAL BETWEEN JOESCHILLING IN THE WHITE GLOVES

AND WAYNE BARRETT IN THE BLACK.

AS MENTIONED, SCHILLING HAD TOGO TO THAT SUDDEN VICTORY ROUND.

HE'S LOGGED MORE MINUTESTHAN WAYNE BARRETT.

WE'LL SEE IF BARRETTIS THE FRESHER FIGHTER.

- THEY'VE DONE A NICE JOBIN THE BACK,

HIS CORNER CREW,GETTING THAT SWELLING DOWN.

AND THAT'S A BIG THING.

YOU'VE GOT TO HAVE GOOD COACHINGAND GOOD PEOPLE AROUND YOU,

WHO KNOW THE CRAFTOF WORKING CORNERS,

AND PART OF IT IS WORKINGON THE BUMPS AND BRUISES

TO GET THAT SWELLING DOWN.

THAT'S AN ART FORM IN ITSELF.

- AS MENTIONED, WE--JOE SCHILLING LOGGING MORE TIME

IN THE RINGIN THAT QUARTERFINAL,

14:41 COMPARED TOWAYNE BARRETT'S,

ONLY TOOK 8:58 FOR HIM...

TO MOVE ON, ALWAYS A FACTORIN THESE TOURNAMENTS.

BUT IF YOU'RE JOE SCHILLING,DUKE,

DO YOU TARGET WHERETHAT BIG HEMATOMA WAS

ON HIS FOREHEAD,

TRY TO OPEN UP A CUT?

- IT'S IN A WEIRD SPOT.

I MEAN, YOU HOPE YOU HIT IT,OBVIOUSLY,

BUT YOU'D RATHER GO AFTERTHE CHIN,

IN MY HUMBLE OPINION.

YOU CAN TELL BOTH GUYSARE A LITTLE TENTATIVE.

THEY'RE KIND OF GETTINGTHEIR DIESEL ENGINES GOING.

THEY'RE HAVING A HARD TIMEGETTING THEIR BODY GOING,

BECAUSE THEIR ADRENALINE HAS GOTTO GET FIRED BACK UP AGAIN.

- YOU KNOW, FROM THAT FIRST WIN,YOU GO BACK TO THE LOCKER ROOM,

AND THE ADRENALINE DUMP HAPPENS,

AND YOU'VE GOT TO GETPICKED UP AGAIN

AND PUMPED UP AGAIN FORTHE SECOND FIGHT OF THE NIGHT.

- YEAH,IT'S A VERY STRANGE EXPERIENCE.

YOU KNOW, MOST OF THE TIME,YOU FIGHT, AND IT'S,

"HEY,LET'S GO TO THE VICTORY PARTY."

THIS ONE, IT'S LIKE,"AH, OH, WAIT A MINUTE.

LET'S GET THE GLOVES BACK ON,AND LET'S HAVE A REDO."

- IT'S ALMOST AS EMOTIONAL--

EMOTIONALLY DRAININGAS IT IS PHYSICALLY,

AS WE'RE UNDER 1 MINUTE TO GOIN THIS ROUND.

AND IT'S GOT TO BE TOUGHTO WARM UP AGAIN TOO.

- WELL,ESPECIALLY IF YOU'RE SHINS,

YOU'VE DINGED THEM.

PEOPLE DON'T REALIZE, LIKE,YOUR ADRENALINE'S GOING,

AND THE SHINS DON'T HURTAS MUCH,

BUT ONCE THE ADRENALINECOOLS DOWN--

NICE TRICKY FRONT KICK THEREBY WAYNE.

- THAT FRONT KICKDID GET THROUGH

AND CAUGHT SCHILLINGON THE CHIN.

- NICE KICK.

- 30 SECONDS TO GOIN ROUND NUMBER ONE

SCHEDULED FOR THREE.

REMEMBER,TWO KNOCKDOWNS PER ROUND

AND THREE IN A BOUTIN THIS SEMIFINAL

WILL END THE FIGHT.

SPINNING BACK FISTFROM SCHILLING JUST MISSES.

- THERE'S THAT HOOKHE CAUGHT HIM WITH IN NEW YORK.

[bell dings]

WAYNE HAS A REALLY UNIQUE SKILL,WHERE HE CAN PULL HIS HEAD AWAY,

MOVE HIS FEET AWAYAT THE SAME TIME,

AND COUNTERHOOK.

I MEAN,IT'S NOT AN ORTHODOX MOVE.

IT'S VERY MUHAMMAD ALI-LIKE,BUT IT WORKS FOR WAYNE BARRETT,

AND IT DEFINITELY WORKEDWITH THE G-O-A-T OF ALL TIME,

MUHAMMAD ALI.

- TOOK BOTH FIGHTERSA LITTLE TIME TO GET GOING.

HOW DID YOU SCORETHAT FIRST ROUND?

- THAT WAS A CLOSE ONE,BUT I THINK

THAT LAST COUNTERPUNCH BY WAYNEMIGHT HAVE GOTTEN HIM

THE SLIGHT EDGE.

THEN AGAIN,WE ARE IN LOS ANGELES.

YOU KNOW, NOW THEY'RE--I WAS JUST IN ALBUQUERQUE

FOR THE DIEGO SANCHEZ FIGHT,

SO HOME COOKING CAN PLAYA BIG ROLE IN FIGHTS

IN THE SPORTS INDUSTRY.

- WE'LL BE BACK WITH ROUND TWOUP NEXT.

HE JUST KNOWS HOW TO BITE ONTHAT MOUTHGUARD AND GO FOR IT,

AND THAT'S WHAT I LOVEABOUT THAT KID.

A LOT OF TIMES, YOU THINKTHAT HE IS DOWN AND OUT,

AND THEN HE'LL STAGEA HUGE COMEBACK,

NEVER QUIT,AS YOU SAW IN THAT FIRST FIGHT,

WHEN HE TOOK OUT SIMON MARCUS.

- THAT'S WHAT I ENJOYABOUT THE FIGHT GAME.

SOMETIMES SKILL, ATHLETICISM,THEY HELP,

BUT WHAT HELPS THE MOST IS TOHAVE THAT GLADIATORIAL SPIRIT

TO NEVER GIVE UP AND BE ABLE TOJUST GO FOR IT.

- ANOTHER COUPLE SHOTS LANDFROM BARRETT.

NOT DOING A LOT OF DAMAGETO SCHILLING

BUT POSSIBLY SCORING.

UNDER A MINUTE TO GOIN ROUND NUMBER TWO.

JOE TRIED HIS KNEE STRIKE.

THERE'S THE HOOKTHAT WAYNE LIKES.

TRYING TO MAKE SOMETHING HAPPEN.

- JOE SLIPS.

- YOU ALL RIGHT?YOU OKAY?

- WELL, HE'S ALL RIGHT.

BUT WAYNE WASN'T ABLETO GET OFF THAT PUNCH

OF HIS LEFT HOOK.

- WELL,HE KEEPS GOING OVER THE TOP,

BUT SCHILLING NOT--UNABLE TO LAND ANYTHING

AND DO MUCH DAMAGE.

BARRETT BOUNCES OFF THE ROPES.

- I THINK THATBOTH OF THESE GUYS

NEED TO UTILIZE THEIR JAB MORE.

- SCHILLING WITHTHE SUPERMAN PUNCH,

PAID FOR IT AS HE CAME IN,AND BARRETT CAUGHT HIM.

- THEY NEED TO BOX WITH THE JABAND STRIKE JAB,

WHERE THEY PUMP THE JAB.

THAT OPENS EVERYTHING UP.

IT MAY BE SOMETHING SPECTACULARDONE HERE IN THE THIRD ROUND

THAT THE JUDGES REMEMBER.
