Pereira-Marcus Signed For GLORY 58
GLORY Kickboxing’s return to Chicago now features a middleweight championship rematch as Alex Pereira will defend against Simon Marcus.
Pereira would take his middleweight title from Marcus in 2017, when the two faced off at GLORY 46: China, as the defending title holder looks to have his third successful title defense on September 14th at Sears Centre.
Pereira has defended the belt twice since gaining the title, both times defeating Yousri Belgaroui, most recently at GLORY 55 New York in July.
Marcus has bounced back in to title contention with a two fight winning streak, with a decision victory over Jason Wilnis being his most recent, taking place in August at GLORY 56 Denver.
