Britain’s Christi “Blonde Boom” Brereton will meet Swedish contender Sofia Olofsson at the GLORY 65 gala taking place on 17 May in Utrecht, Netherlands, the promotion announced today. The bout will be contested in the 55 kg weight category (Super Bantamweight).
Brereton made her GLORY debut last June with a points victory over Nicola Kaye. She was announced to appear on the 31 May KOK event taking place at York Hall in London, but apparently she is fighting at the GLORY event instead.
Olofsson made an impressive GLORY debut last year. She gave former champion Tiffany van Soest a battle, but lost a split decision at GLORY 55 in New York. The Swede rebounded with a unanimous decision against French talent Cindy Silvestre at GLORY 60 LAST October. Olofsson is currently the third-ranked super bantamweight behind former titlists van Soest and Jady Menezes.
The Brereton-Olofsson contest will be part of the GLORY 65 Superfight Series, which precedes the GLORY 65 main card.
