This Friday at GLORY 55 New York Yousri Belgaroui gets a crack at GLORY Middleweight Champion Alex Pereira, in a third fight between the two men. GLORY released a video that takes a look back on the triumphs of Yousri Belgaroui throughout his GLORY career leading up to this big title fight that takes place this Friday, live from New York City’s Hulu Theater at MSG.
At GLORY 55 New York Yousri Belgaroui and Alex Pereira will clash for Pereira’s GLORY Middleweight Championship in a rubber match. At GLORY 40 Yousri Belgaroui scored the upset win in the middleweight tournament over Pereira, only for a rematch at GLORY 49 for Pereira’s championship saw the Brazilian retain the championship. At GLORY 55 they’ll clash for a third time, once again for the title, in one of the featured bouts of the evening. GLORY put together this video package for the upcoming fight and it’s time to get excited.
One of the more anticipated bouts at GLORY 55 would have to be GLORY Featherweight Champion Robin van Roosmalen squaring off against Petchpanomrung for the title in the main event. Sadly, that fight is no longer on the menu as GLORY announced this afternoon that Robin van Roosmalen has been forced to withdraw thanks to a shoulder injury while training. So once again an interim title will be set and once again Kevin Vannostrand will be involved, this time fighting Petchpanomrung for the Interim Featherweight Championship with the winner fighting van Roosmalen when he’s healthy again. This leaves Massaro Glunder [read more]

GLORY will return to New York City and the Theater at MSG — now the Hulu Theater and MSG — with GLORY 55, featuring two big headlining fights for GLORY world titles. The first of which is the much-anticipated, often-booked, hasn’t-been-delivered-yet Alex Pereira vs. Yousri Belgaroui for Pereira’s GLORY Middleweight Championship. The second bout is GLORY Featherweight Champion Robin van Roosmalen defending against Petchpanomrung Kiatmookao once again.
