GLORY, the world’s premier kickboxing league, begins its 2017 campaign in the beating heart of California as The Novo by Microsoft – part of the L.A. LIVE entertainment complex in Downtown Los Angeles – hosts GLORY 37 Los Angeles and GLORY 37 SuperFight Series.
GLORY 37 Los Angeles, to be broadcast on ESPN Networks, will feature a lightweight world title fight and one-night, four-man welterweight contender tournament. GLORY 37 Super Fight Series, to stream live and exclusively on UFC Fight Pass, will feature a featherweight world title fight.
“L.A. LIVE is exactly where GLORY needs to be and The Novo [by Microsoft] is a perfect host for us. We’re bringing the world’s best strikers to the most entertaining place on the planet,” said Jon Franklin, CEO, GLORY. “The best and brightest in basketball are playing across the street at 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 that culture.”
