This summer GLORY has something special in store for the world as they unveiled their “Summer of GLORY” campaign at GLORY 54 Birmingham. The “Summer of GLORY” will consist of five numbered events: GLORY 55 New York, GLORY 56 Denver, GLORY 57 Shenzen, GLORY 58 Chicago and GLORY 59 Amsterdam. The idea behind it is GLORY putting forth their best foot for the summer with their biggest fights.
Below GLORY gives some insight as to what is planned for each show, with, of course, the later events still in their skeletal stage right now. Here’s to hoping that GLORY puts on a blistering series of summer events and that it doesn’t turn out like the Summer of George did. That didn’t go well.
