By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

Glory — the premier kickboxing organization — will host its first 2017 event in Los Angeles. They’re hosting the event at The Novo by Microsoft, which is part of the L.A. Live complex on Jan. 20th, 2017.

It’ll host Glory 37 Los Angeles and its Glory 37 SuperFight Series. This fight will be hosted on the ESPN networks with it being live on ESPN3 and ESPN2 at a later date.

“L.A. Live is exactly where GLORY needs to be and The Novo (By Microsoft) is a perfect host for us,” Jon Franklin, Glory CEO said. “We’re bringing the world’s best strikers to the most entertaining place on the planet. The best and brightest in basketball are playing across the street at (the) STAPLES Center; our broadcast partner ESPN has their west coast studio at L.A. LIVE.

“It’s all happening at this major hub for sports and we’re happy to be a part of that culture.”

The fight card will be made at a later date. Ticketing information should be announced shortly.

Before this event, there will be GLORY: Collision — which is a special event that will take place at the König Pilsener Arena in Oberhausen, Germany — on Saturday, Dec. 10. The GLORY World Champion Rico Verhoeven will face Badr Hari.

Verhoeven last fought on Sept. 9 at GLORY 33 New Jersey at the Sun National Bank Center in Trenton, NJ. He defeated Anderson “Braddock” Silva in the second round.
