Artem Vakhitov vs. Danyo Ilunga to Headline GLORY 56 Denver

The summer is just starting to heat up and GLORY will look to keep their “Summer of GLORY” campaign rolling with a bang during the dog days in Denver on August 10th. The event, already announced, will now feature a GLORY Light Heavyweight Championship bout between long-reigning champion Artem Vakhitov and former It’s Showtime Light Heavyweight Champion Danyo Ilunga.

It’s Showtime ran the Amsterdam Arena a number of times over the years — mostly in conjunction with K-1 — where they always claimed 20,000 in attendance.

Rico Verhoeven Remains Untouchable at GLORY 54

It’s usually hyperbole when you talk about a combat sports champion being unrivaled. Yet, in the case of Rico Verhoeven in kickboxing, that’s exactly what he is. GLORY has thrown virtually everyone that there is at Verhoeven throughout his world title reign and there have been very few moments where Rico looked human. At GLORY 54 Rico was tasked with a rematch against Mladen Brestovac, who is known for his deadly left high kick. The two met prior in a match that very much went Rico’s way, but Rico refused to underestimate Brestovac for a second fight. While the odds [read more]
