According to a report from Liver Kick, it appears GLORY has officially postponed its nineteenth event from December to February.
“Obviously I’m disappointed that we had to move off the December 19th date,” GLORY CEO Jon J. Franklin said. “But I’d have been even more disappointed if we continued with the hard work it takes to put on an event like GLORY does and it didn’t live up to the standard our fans have come to expect and demand.”
While Franklin did not offer a specific reason for the postponement, he did ensure eager fans that their coming event will feature a heavyweight title fight between Rico Verhoeven and Errol Zimmerman.
No specific date or venue has been selected for the event.
“As planned for 2015, we will take January off and then return on SPIKE with GLORY 19 in February. Our Heavyweight World Champion Rico Verhoeven is facing a tough task in Errol Zimmerman and we’ve also got the buzzsaw that is Nieky Holzken and human highlight reel Raymond Daniels. Once we’re able to announce the full card for GLORY 19, it will be worth the wait.”
The promotion hosted its most recent event, GLORY 18, earlier this month in Shawnee, Oklahoma. It featured a lightweight title fight between Davit Kiria and Robin van Roosmalen, as well as a 4-man light heavyweight contender tournament.
