On Friday, Dec. 1, GLORY Kickboxing will host its 48th event from the The Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
In the night’s main card headliner, American Kevin VanNostrand battles Anvar Boynazarov for interim gold in the featherweight division. VanNostrand earned a shot at gold by winning the GLORY 43 one-night tournament. Boynazarov, meanwhile, came up short in his recent tournament bid, but with eventual winner Abdellah Ezbiri unable to compete in New York, Boynazarov will look to deliver another highlight-reel finish.
The night’s SuperFight Series features a super bantamweight title fight between champion Tiffany van Soest and the world’s No. 1 pound-for-pound female kickboxer, Anissa Meksen.
Also on the card, the promotion will hold a one-night, four-man middleweight qualifying tournament, as well as the promotional debuts of UFC veterans Thiago Silva and Chris Camozzi.
