On Thursday, May 7, GLORY hosted the weigh-ins for its 21st event which takes place Friday, May 8, from the Valley View Casino Center in San Diego.
In the night’s main event, middleweight champion Artem Levin will lock horns with Simon Marcus. The Russian Levin captured GLORY gold by winning the one-night, eight-man Last Man Standing tournament last June. The 28-year-old has reeled off seven straight wins, including four straight in the GLORY ring. Canada’s Marcus, meanwhile, bounced back in a big way at GLORY 20 in Dubai. After dropping his promotional debut to Joe Schilling, Marcus claimed wins over Wayne Barrett and Jason Wilnis in Dubai to earn his shot at Levin.
The co-main event features decorated karate stylist Raymond Daniels, who welcomes Justin Baesman to the GLORY ring.
Also on the main card will be a four-man, one-night heavyweight qualification tournament which pits Chi Lewis-Parry against Demoreo Dennis and Xavier Vigney against Maurice Jackson. The winner will earn a spot in one of the promotion’s future contender tournaments.
The night’s main card airs on Spike TV on Friday at 11 p.m. ET.
