GLORY are returning to Europe for a couple end of year events. Fresh off their collaboration with Bellator for Dynamite 1 where kickboxing and MMA fights took place on one big show in San Jose, the world’s number one kickboxing show are looking to go back to their routes.
In the early days of GLORY they held their first six numbered events in Europe but in the years since they’ve only returned to the continent just three times while hosting thirteen other numbered events across America, Japan, and Dubai.
Last night they announced via press release that GLORY 25 will take place in Milan on November 6th with lightweight champ Robin van Roosmalen defending his title against Sittichai. It will be the third time GLORY have visited Italy after events in Rome in 2012 and Milan in 2013.
Less than a month later they will hold their very first event in the Netherlands with GLORY 26 taking place in Amsterdam on December 4th. With deep routes already in Dutch kickboxing it was only a matter of time before the promotion went to the kickboxing hub of Europe and it is shaping up to be a massive event featuring Rico Verhoeven, Nieky Holzken, Mosab Amrani, and more.
However, before these pair of events GLORY 24 will happen in Denver, Colorado next week with Joe Schilling and a heavyweight tournament on the card to name the number one contender.
