Leo Gloss vs Abdul Hassan - EFC 13

With EFC 13 less than a month away, we can expect the fight announcements to start rolling in. 

Today the EFC announced a featherweight clash to strengthen the fight card and pit two of the most experienced featherweights in South Africa against one another. Former featherweight title contender King Leo Gloss (#4 featherweight rankings) will face Abdul "Hollywood" Hassan on 13 April.

Leo Gloss (8-3) has not fought since his loss to Demarte Pena in September last year. Gloss will certainly want to return to his winning ways and build his way up to another title shot. Originally known for his phenomenal boxing skills, Leo Gloss has shown an improved ground game every time he has entered the Hexagon, and as his ground game continues to evolve, Gloss will become a greater threat to the featherweight division.

Abdul Hassan (17-5) is one of the most experienced featherweights in South Africa, but he is still fairly new to the EFC. Carrying an EFC record of 1-1, Hollywood has yet to make his mark in the countries mainstream promotion. A win for Abdul Hassan versus Leo Gloss would certainly get him noticed and propel him up the featherweight rankings.
