Asa Ten Pow Collides With Glory

Posted by Matt Lucas on

A collision is imminent as Asa Ten Pow goes full speed to Amsterdam for Glory Collision 2. Held at Gelredome Arena on Saturday, December 21st, the Muay Thai Addict sponsored athlete will be facing the number four ranked featherweight, Zakaria Zouggary from Morocco.

The American favorite has tremendous momentum since his first steps into the international kickboxing organization. He’s looking to continue his undefeated momentum against Zouggary. 

A wreck is imminent as both fighters have wins over the UK’s Bailey Sugden, with Ten Pow’s points victory coming more recently, in September of this year.
“Personally I thought it was fairly easy,” Ten Pow said about his last fight. “Some people thought it was a lackluster performance. I thought I didn’t really put it together as much I’d like.”

This bout he plans on being more explosive and has been specifically focusing on hammering in his dynamite strength and core. He’s shifting gears to sit more on his punches.

“From fight to fight I like to work on something else to refine,” Ten Pow said.

He’s had a polished record so far for Glory and has had six successful outings since last summer.

Coming out of Florida Kickboxing Academy the lifelong martial artist knows that the stakes are getting higher as the velocity increases.

“This card with Badr versus Rico has a lot of eyes on it and I’m facing a high ranked opponent,” he said. “This guy will give it to me.”

He’s been able to take what the world and the organization have handed out so far. Ten Pow has been a pioneer for combat sports in America. With his outings in the USMF and the success of the fighters out of his gym, he’s a proven figure in the stand up striking sports. His path is allowing more fighters to find success.
“It’s good to see more Americans on the scene,” Ten Pow said. “Now I’m one of the head honchos as an American athlete. I pushed my way into this. I want to be at the top.”
The climb to the top is fraught with dangers, shocks, crashes, and demolition but Ten Pow isn’t afraid of a few fender benders.

Potential success with this bout has Ten Pow hoping to go for the belt holder, Petchpanomrung Kiatmoo 9 or one of the other top three athletes.
“I want the fight with Petch because I believe I can give him the most exciting fight. I think fans will really enjoy it. I think he’s the one that will bring the best in me.”
His steady speed in the ring has had him see increase purses and opportunities. This has given him more support for his camps. He’s able to invest more in his training.
“Now that I have more money coming in I have more money investing in my camp. There’s also more money on the line,” he said.
The engines are revving. The date is set. High level American athlete Asa Ten pow is just getting started though.
“I feel like I’m just getting going with my career. Especially in the European scene. I feel like I’m the lowest man in the totem pole. I feel like my career is just starting,” Ten Pow said. 
There’s no doubt that Ten Pow is accelerating. His pace is quick and his path is sure.

Muay Thai Addict is proud to sponsor him and see his rapid growth. We are sure to expect fireworks for his bout at Glory Collision 2 on December 21st in Amsterdam.
