If you are a fan of world class striking, then you will want to tune in to Spike TV on Saturday night when kickboxing promotion GLORY invades our televisions once again for GLORY 15: Istanbul.
This weekend’s event, which takes place at the lker Arena in Turkey, features a light heavyweight tournament that will lead to the crowning of the inaugural GLORY light heavyweight champion. This will be the fifth GLORY event to air on Spike TV, and it will begin at 8 p.m. ET via tape delay.
GLORY’s light heavyweight tournament field includes four impressive competitors — Gokhan Saki, Nathan Corbett, Tyrone Spong and Saulo Cavalari — with Saki and Spong considered to be the favorites by many.
We should expect some heavy-hitting action throughout the event, as GLORY looks to continue their streak of impressive showcases that has led to an increase in kickboxing in the United States. With Spong, who is a rising MMA star, on the fight card, there could be more eyes on the event than ever.
