Francois 'Bang Bang' Ambang's Impressive KO at Glory 19

Check out the highlights from this action-packed fight.

Francois Ambang Glory 19 KO

Kickboxer Francois Ambang got back to winning ways on February 6 at Glory 19 when he knocked out Stephen Richards in the second round of their fight at the Hampton Coliseum. Check out the footage below and move to about 2:30 to catch the beginning of the end of Richards' night. Ambang sets up the big KO with a 1-2 combination followed by a right hand counter punch. It's clear that Richards is stunned, and his legs begin to betray him. Ambang senses the shift in momentum and pounces to end the fight  with a right low kick followed by another huge right hand, which temporarily separates his opponent from his senses.

As commentator Mauro Ranallo notes, Ambang is one fight removed from being on the receiving end of a vicious knockout. The rebound win is all the more impressive given that the fighter suffered this brutal loss to Raymond Daniels (who also fought on the same Glory 19 card and lost by first round knockout to Nieky Holzken) at Glory 16.
