Monday, Oct 01 2018
Cor Hemmers, GLORY Kickboxing's Managing Director of Sports, says the weekend's GLORY 59 event was a success not only for GLORY, but for the sport of kickboxing - 1 million live viewers on Dutch television and a sold-out crowd.
The world's premier kickboxing league, GLORY World Series maintains six different weight classes. Fights take place both as single matches between two fighters known as 'superfights') and as part of tournaments.
Four-man tournaments are the standard, with eight-man tournaments also staged on occasion. The tournaments take one of two forms: either they are World Championship Tournaments, with the division's world title on the line, or they are 'Contender' tournaments, with the winner earning a spot in the next upcoming World Championship Tournaments.
All Glory World Series matches and events are organized under the auspices of and with the consent of the Glory Sports International and are subjects to the GLORY World Series regulations.
1.1.2 Match license
To organize matches and events under the auspices of GSI, the written permission of the management og GSI is required, known as the match license.
