Glory is live today with a triple-header of big action. The three shows all take place live from Rotterdam and include some of Glory’s major names in action. Headlining the evening is a world title fight pitting Heavyweight champion Rico Verhoeven against one of the relatively few men who hold a win over him, the big Jamal Ben Saddik.
Other highlights of the cards include a rematch of Glory’s 2016 fight of the year between Danyo Ilunga and Michael Duut, a Middleweight title fight with champion Alex Pereira defending against Yousri Belgaroui, the latest from one of Glory’s all-time biggest stars Nieky Holzken, and a potential Heavyweight barn-burner between Ismael Londt and D’Angelo Marshall.
