Glory's Asa Ten Pow is inches away from title fight
Regarding a title shot, he feels he is inches away.
“I believe there will be one more fight until we get there. For my sake, its best I get one more fight. I’d like to get on the–Rico Verhoeven and Badr Hari Glory Collision 2 fight card on December 21–but if not, I look forward to the rest of the year and enjoy some time off and getting back to the drawing board. I’ll see what they have next for me.”
The six-ranked featherweight said that he felt a challenge from his foe.
“He was, I felt tested, but I can feel his punching power. But it wasn’t there. It was like he was hitting me a lot with the glove not with the knuckles. There were a couple of shots he hit me with the knuckles that were clean but that was only a few times.”
For Ten Pow, it was the second time this year he fought in his home state.
“This is my home crowd here,” he said. “I was born in Portland, Oregon in the west coast but I’ve been living here since I was five-years old. I feel like a native so this is my state.”
