The numbered events are back as GLORY announces GLORY 91 and GLORY 92.

Last weekend GLORY started their year big with the return of the Grand Prix format. They are looking to continue their success with the next two announced two cards. The biggest kickboxing promotion in Europe is coming back to Paris on Saturday, 27 April for GLORY 91 and GLORY 92 will take place in Rotterdam on May 18th.


The first event will be headlined with a title fight between GLORY Welterweight champion Endy Semeleer from Curaçao and the promotion's number one ranked contender Chico Kwasi from the Netherlands. Semeleer is coming off a victory over young challenger Anwar Ouled-Chaib – hardly a challenge, since the champion made short work of the House of GLORY winner. Kwasi will be his first ranked challenger since his win over Jay Overmeer. Chico Kwasi too defeated Jay Overmeer in his last duel, whereafter he expressed his desire to fight for the title as soon as possible. When the challenger signed with the promotion, he expressed his desire to become the division's king within a year. The timing couldn't be better since Kwasi made his GLORY debut almost exactly a year ago and to top it off, GLORY 91 coincides with the Dutch national holiday Kingsday. 


GLORY's return to France will have a main event with a title fight in the Middleweight division, where champion Donovan Wisse looks to continue to hunt down every top challenger in the division, this time he takes Swiss fighter Ulric Bokeme. The last time we saw both these fighters was at GLORY Collision 6 in Arnhem, The Netherlands. Champion Wisse had a tough fight against opponent Michael Boapeah, where he made a strong comeback in the championship rounds. Bokeme made sure everyone watching knew his loss against Boapeah was just a slip for him. He defeated former title challenger Serkan Özçağlayan in a unanimous decision and will now face the biggest challenge of his career yet.

Also confirmed for GLORY 91 Rotterdam is a Welterweight match between Jos van Belzen and newly signed Cyril Benzaquen from France.
