Kickboxing organization Glory World Series tops up its schedule with the events in Den Bosch, Paris and New York City.

The GLORY promotion has started the season late February. The organization has held its 38th event in Chicago where the current light heavyweight champion Artem Vakhitov defended the belt against Saulo Cavalari. The next show is the welterweight championship in Brussels where Cedric Doumbe faces off Yoann Kongolo on March 25. In addition, Glory 40 is currently in makes. International kickboxing returns to Copenhagen on April 29 with the middleweight title clash Jason Wilnis vs Simon Marcus.

On Friday the organization announced three more events included in the roster. The show No. 41 comes to the southern Netherlands. A former lightweight and featherweight world champion Robin van Roosmalen (37-7, 21 KO) headlines the event in Den Bosch. He is currently the number one contender who will challenge for the vacant featherweight strap once again. His opponent is the winner of the one-night four-man tournament figured at Glory 39 Brussels in less than two weeks.

The next stop is the world’s top fashion capital. AccorHotels Arena accommodates Glory 42 Paris on June 10. The organization advises that the fight card will likely include a lightweight contender tournament as well as the world title bouts in welterweight and lightweight classes.

Lastly, Glory comes back to New York City on July 21. The fight card is promised to showcase the top talent in action.

The press release also advises that the additional location and dates may be added to the schedule. We will have more information as soon as it becomes available.
