New York has long been one of the hotbeds for Muay Thai and Kickboxing in the United States and GLORY Sports International has taken a keen focus on New York as one of its home bases for the coming years -- for a good reason. GLORY has held a number of events in New York already, including GLORY 9 and smaller Road 2 Glory events with local promoter Lou Neglia at at the helm, but it looks like now that GLORY has an abundance of options, tapping into some of the other top promoters in the area.
GLORY announced today that they have forged new partnerships with popular promotions Friday Night Fights and TaKe-On Promotions based out of New York. For those who regularly read the site or follow NYC's scene these names will be very familiar for you, as they are two of the biggest and most popular promotions in New York. This means that their roster of promoters in New York is now up to three, which could mean more events in the area in the upcoming months.
GLORY's next event in New York is GLORY 12 NYC, which goes down at the Theater at Madison Square Garden on November 23rd.
