Meksen To Defend Her Title At GLORY 56
As GLORY gets closer to its return to Denver, they’ve announced two fights for GLORY 56 on August 10th from the 1STBANK Center in Broomfield, Colorado.
Anissa Meksen looks for her second successful title defense and her third win of 2018, as she faves off against Brazilian fighter Jady Menezes.
The two face off in a rematch from GLORY 43 in July 2017, where Meksen would take the win in their GLORY debuts. Since that night Meksen has been undefeated in a GLORY ring and gone non to win the super bantamweight title at GLORY’s return to New York in December.
Also added to GLORY’s return to Denver is a featherweight showdown between Serhii Adamchuck taking on Anvar Boynazarov. A former GLORY featherweight champion, Adamchuck looks to repeat his success against Boynazarov, when he took a unanimous decision win in September, 2015.
