GLORY 58 Chicago: Pereira vs. Marcus

GLORY 58 Chicago: Boynazarov vs. Sugden added

Kickboxing event GLORY 58 Chicago is held at the Sears Centre Arena in Hoffman Estates, Ill on September 15 (AWST). Late last week the promotion topped up the roster with six matchups.

On Thursday the headline-bout has been announced, featuring the defending middleweight champion Alex Pereira up against the former titleholder Simon Marcus. The pair squares off in the championship rematch.

Pereira (28-6, 18 KOs) claimed the belt against Marcus last October in China, where he earned a unanimous decision. After that he twice successfully defended the title scoring the stoppage wins against Yousri Belgaroui.

Marcus (48-4-2, 27 KOs) aspires to regain the title for the second time. Riding a two-fight win streak, he is coming off a decision win against Jason Wilnis taken earlier this month in Denver.

In addition, a featherweight bout between Anvar Boynazarov and Bailey Sugden has been added to the programme, as well as a four-fight preliminary card. The current lineup can be found below.
