Tafa vs. McDonald moved to GLORY 55 New York
Kickboxing event GLORY 55 is held at The Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York on July 21 (July 20 in the US). Earlier this month the fight card suffered a change. On Wednesday the lineup has been finalized.
Featherweight Massaro Glunder was originally scheduled to face Kevin Vannostrand, who has replaced the current champion in the division Robin van Roosmalen. The latter was forced to withdraw from his bout against Petchpanomrung Kiatmookao due to shoulder injury.
The Vannostrand vs. Petchpanomrung bout has been announced as a co-main event with the interim featherweight title on the line. Glunder is no longer featured on the card “and will be reassigned to another event in the near future,” stated in the announcement.
A heavyweight battle between Junior Tafa and Anthony McDonald was moved to the main card. The GLORY 55 Super Fight Series programme proceeds with six bouts. The current lineup can be found below.
