For fans waiting in anticipation for news from Glory, the wait is over. Today, Glory announced an official partnership with ESPN that will see Glory’s shows airing on the ESPN network of channels starting immediately.
The most timely piece here is for Glory 25, scheduled for this Friday, November 6. That show will air LIVE on ESPN3 at 4:00 p.m. ET / 1:00 p.m. PT, and will then be rebroadcast on ESPN2 later that night at 1:30 a.m. ET / 10:30 p.m. PT. ESPN3 is available through most cable providers, and also through numerous online streaming services – check watchESPN.com for more info.
This is big news for kickboxing fans, as until now, Glory 25 had been without a broadcast home in the US. Last month, Glory and Spike announced that they had parted ways, ending a relationship that began in 2013 with the broadcast of Glory 11. Glory has been working on a deal since then, with the official announcement coming today.
Glory 25 is a stacked card, headlined by a world title fight between Robin van Rossmalen and Sittichai Sitsongpeenong, plus the return of the former #1 pound for pound fighter in the world Giorgio Petrosyan, as he takes on Josh Jauncey. Prior to the ESPN3 broadcast, Glory will also air the Superfight Series, which is available in a live stream here at Bloody Elbow.
Join us Friday afternoon for live coverage of Glory 25 Milan, live on ESPN3.
