GLORY Kickboxing today announced the preliminary bouts for the GLORY 55 event taking place on July 20 in New York. Six bouts are scheduled for the GLORY 55 prelims, which take place before the GLORY 55 Superfight Series. The top 3 preliminary bouts will be broadcast live and free on the GLORY Kickboxing YouTube channel, Pluto TV (Channel 215), and also the GLORY Facebook page. The prelims are scheduled to begin at 1750 ET/1450 PT.
Headlining the preliminary bouts is Philadelphia’s Ahmad Ibrahim. Ibrahim (4-1) is a Palestinian-American fighter who has won four straight bouts since losing to Mateo Maldonado in his pro debut. Ibrahim avenged the loss with a decision win over Maldonado in a Muay Thai bout in April. Ibrahim faces undefeated Canadian Jonathan Di Bella (6-0).
Uzbek Zarrukh Adashev, who fights out of the New York area, faces Geoffrey Then in a 135lb/61.2kg match up. Unbeaten John “Johnny Love” Pina (4-0) of Brooklyn, New York risks his perfect record against once-beaten Brandon Cuttino (3-1) in a 155lb/70.3kg encounter. For fans attending the event live, there’s also a ladies bout and two other prelims scheduled.
