Patrice Quarteron promised to seriously harm GLORY heavyweight, Daniel Sam, in Paris later tonight. The buildup to this fight has been full of controversy and trash talk dating back as far back as 10 weeks ago. The French heavyweight who, isn’t shy when it comes to pushing his self-promotional antics to the extreme, delivered his latest venomous statements when he threatened the Brit via Instagram:
“What’s up Daniel Sam? For the 24th November, I break your neck, you understand? F-ck you bitch. F-ck Daniel Sam.”
If the above threat wasn’t enough, Quarteron had also taken the war of words further via social media when he posted an insensitive meme (using a picture from Margaret Thatcher’s state funeral), implying he would murder his British opponent. As you can imagine, such crude use of a picture from the late UK prime minster’s funeral, was not received well by the “The Warrior” or fight fans online either.
At an earlier press press conference, when the pair faced off Sam had told the Frenchman that he’s thinks he’s a ‘clown’ and made reference to Quarteron’s past shenanigans with Badr Hari; at a GFC press conference in Dubai – that fight would be cancelled by the promotion and result in all sorts of allegations by Quarteron as to why the fight with the “Golden Boy” never happened.
However, “The Dark Ronin” used Sam’s taunts as motivation to come over to England a few days later, dressed up (and with facial make-up done) as a crazed killer clown; armed with an actively working chainsaw and professional film crew; and visited a gym in London where he had believed Sam would be training one evening to confront him. The British fighter wasn’t there that night, however, you can see for yourself exactly what happened (in the video above).
Quarteron hasn’t lost a fight since June 2009 which, was by second round KO, to Paul Slowinski at the Champions of Champions 2 event in Jamaica and approximately 82.5% of his past wins have been by KO. Sam has been building good momentum with his fighting career ever since and including, a close decision loss to, Xavier Vigney at GLORY 23. As well as a recent decision win over, Cătălin Moroşanu earlier this year. It will be interesting to see how this fight unfolds tonight in a bitter battle between England and France.
