GLORY 50 takes place at UIC Pavillion in Chicago on Friday February 16. The event is the fifth kickboxing promotion in the city, following the most recent gala held at Sears Centre Arena in August. The program traditionally comprises two chapters.
Earlier this month the organization announced the main event for GLORY 50 Chicago, featuring Murthel Groenhart up against Harut Grigorian in their third bout. The pair battles out for welterweight belt.
The headline-bout for GLORY 50 Super Fight Series topped up the program on Friday. The match up features the reigning lightweight champion Thai Sitthichai Sitsongpeenong, who defends the belt against Angolan-Dutch challenger Christian Baya.
The fight card also includes the representatives of the country-host Richard Abraham and Daniel Morales. Their respective opponents and other match ups are expected to be announced in the near future.
In addition, earlier this week the promotion announced that “The Golden Boy” Badr Hari returns to action. K-1 kickboxing star headlines GLORY 51 Rotterdam held on March 3. The name of his opponent is yet to be determined. We will have more information as soon as it becomes available.
