GLORY Kickboxing returns to Chicago this coming weekend with two back to back events held at Wintrust Arena on November 22-23. The fight cards, billed as GLORY 71 and GLORY 72, are headlined by championship bouts, following a series of rating matchups.

The lineup of the upcoming show has now been finalised. The roster suffered several changes, including the headline-bout of GLORY 72. Previously announced Alexei Ulianov was replaced by former interim featherweight champion Kevin Vannostrand, who takes on the division’s king Petchpanomrung Kiatmookao in the rematch.

“Non-injury related changes were due to a handful of fighters being moved from their slots due to visa or licensing issues. Though if you consider the fact that it’s a huge double-header event, involving twice the usual amount of fighters, the changes aren’t especially numerous,” said a GLORY spokesman.

Petchpanomrung (163-36-2, 27 KO) and VanNostrand (19-3, 12 KO) first met in July 2018 in New York, where the Thai fighter took the interim belt by split decision. In his following bout “The Professor” claimed the undisputed title by unanimous decision against former champion Robin van Roosmalen. The American competitor has rebounded with a pair of wins by unanimous decision against Massaro Glunder and Serhii Adamchuk.

The headline of GLORY 71 features the defending women’s super bantamweight champion Anissa Meksen up against former titleholder Tiffany van Soest. The pair meets for the third time.

The finalised GLORY 71 and GLORY 72 fight cards can be found below.
