Heavyweight kickboxing tournament headlines GLORY 62 on December 8 at Rotterdam Ahoy in the Netherlands. Mid last month the promotion announced all eight participants of $150,000 eliminator.

The tournament’s first four seeds have been established in November. The roster includes three-time heavyweight contender tournament winner Romanian Benjamin Adegbuyi (31-5, 18 KO) as the No. 1 seed, Moroccan-Belgian behemoth Jamal Ben Saddik (32-7 1 NC, 26 KO) as the No. 2 seed, perennial contender Dutch Jahfarr Wilnis (31-10-1, 8 KO) as the No. 3 seed, and recent title challenger Brazilian Guto Inocente (35-9, 17 KO) as the No 4 seed.

The remaining tournament seeding and first-round match-ups have now also been determined.

During the draw held in Amsterdam, Australian Junior Tafa (20-3, 16 KO), Slovakian Tomas Mozny (20-6-1, 6 KO), German Mohamed Abdallah (18-2, 6 KO), and Polish Arkadiusz Wrzosek (7-4 1 NC, 4 KO) were randomly assigned a seed between five and eight. Seed No. 5 was able to pick their quarterfinal foe out of the top four seeds, followed by Seed No. 6 selecting from the three competitors not yet chosen, and finally Seed No. 7 choosing between the two remaining options. Seed No. 8 was automatically matched with the last remaining fighter.

The results of tournament draw look as the following:

Mohamed Abdallah (No. 5) vs. Guto Inocente (No. 4)
Tomas Mozny (No. 6) vs. Jahfarr Wilnis (No. 3)
Junior Tafa (No. 7) vs. Jamal Ben Saddik (No. 2)
Arkadiusz Wrzosek (No. 8) vs. Benjamin Adegbuyi (No. 1)

The tournament reserve bout features a pair of heavyweights Roel Mannaart and Kirill Kornilov. A light heavyweight kickboxing battle between Luis Tavares and Artur Gorlov serves as GLORY 62 co-headline bout.
