GLORY, the world’s premier kickboxing league, proudly announces its final event of the calendar year, Glory 13, featuring a televised one-night, Welterweight World Championship Tournament, taking place at the Ariake Colosseum in Tokyo, Japan on Saturday, December 21st.

GLORY’s Welterweight World Championship Tournament will feature the top-ranked kickboxers at 77kg/170lb, including GLORY’s #1 Ranked Welterweight fighter, Nieky Holzken (82-11-0, 43 KOs) of the Netherlands.

To emerge as the GLORY Welterweight World Champion, given the 4-man tournament structure, a combatant will need to fight and win two bouts in the same night.

While the Welterweight World Championship Tournament will be a focal point of the night, other headline fights will be featured alongside a taping of the GLORY SuperFights Series. Local undercard fights are still to be announced. GLORY has conducted two other events in Japan in its two-year history and crowned a Heavyweight World Champion, Semmy Schilt at Glory 4, and Featherweight World Champion Yuta Kubo at Glory 8.
