Glory is returning to action on Friday, February 6 with Glory 19. The show is live from Virginia and features a stacked line-up including a Rico Verhoeven vs. Errol Zimmerman Heavyweight title fight, the return of Joe Schilling after his wild Bellator KO of Melvin Manhoef, and a Welterweight tournament featuring the always exciting Raymond Daniels and the uncrowned Welterweight king Nieky Holzken.
Also taking place in Virginia is the Superfight Series, a separate set of fights that takes place before the main Glory card. While Glory has staged this Superfight Series for some time, it’s also been a source of frustration for many American fans, as this portion of the show has never been available for US fans to watch live. Until now.
Glory CEO Jon Franklin confirmed to Bloody Elbow that, starting with Glory 19, the Superfight Series will air live on US TV:
We’re still working on the final details of the contract, but you WILL be able to see the Glory Superfight Series on American television.
Franklin confirmed that the company is finalizing details, but fans can expect an announcement within the next few days and that the Superfights from Virginia will be televised “for sure.”
This is incredibly exciting news for fans of Glory. After a dark period the past 6 months, the company not only has two shows coming up and announced, but they are also expanding with the Superfights. Fans have been clamoring to get these aired for quite some time, and this is a great step for the company.
It also comes at the perfect time, as the Superfight Series at Glory 19 features some major names, with fights from former #1 Lightweight Andy Ristie and red hot rising prospect Josh Jauncey. Here’s the full card for the Superfight Series on February 6:
Andy Ristie vs. Steve Moxon
Josh Jauncey vs. Max Baumert
Francois Ambang vs. Stephen Richards
Brian Collette vs. Myron Dennis
Xavier Vigney vs. Everett Sims
Bloody Elbow will have the official details as soon as they are announced.
