Badr Hari (James Law/GLORY Kickboxing)

GLORY 78 Features Badr Hari Plus Three Title Fights

GLORY Kickboxing has announced the full fight card for GLORY 78, which takes place Saturday, July 17 in Rotterdam, Netherlands.

In addition to the main event of the evening, where heavyweight Badr Hari will face Poland’s Arkadiusz Wrzosek, there will be three title fights on the card.

Light heavyweight champion Alex Pereira will rematch former champion Artem Vakhitov, whom he defeated by controversial decision at GLORY 77.


The promotion’s middleweight belt — which was previously held by Pereira before he became light heavyweight champion — is up for grabs between top-ranked Donovan Wisse and Yousri Belgaroui.

Finally, Tyjani Beztati will fight Elvis Gashi for the vacant lightweight title. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, the belt was held by Marat Grigorian, but it was vacated when he and former champion Sitthichai Sitsongpeenong signed with ONE Championship.
