This Saturday, June 10, Glory returns to France for Glory 42 Paris. As always, the show is split into the Superfight Series live on Fight Pass, and the Glory 42 card live on the ESPN Networks. Exciting news for this card – Glory 42 will air live on ESPN2 this time, not ESPN3. Bloody Elbow will have live fight coverage.
Headlining the show is a big world title rematch from December, when Cedric Doumbe faces Nieky Holzken. Doumbe took the belt from Holzken in December, toppling the man considered by some to be kickboxing’s pound for pound king at the time. He’s since defended it once, and will look to cement his status as champion with another victory over the Natural in front of a Doumbe home country crowd. The show also features a Lightweight tournament, plus a terrific match in Murthel Groenhart vs. Harut Grigorian.
There is some excellent action to be found on the Superfight Series card as well – highlights include Yoann Kongolo vs. Yohan Lidon and Dylan Salvador vs. Serhiy Adamchuk.
Glory 42 airs this Saturday, June 10. The Superfight Series starts at 12:30 p.m. ET on Fight Pass, and is followed by the Glory 42 Paris card on ESPN2 at 3:00 p.m. ET. Check out the full fight card below, and join us Saturday.
