Glory Kickboxing announced last week that Chicago will serve as the host City for Glory 38. The Sears Centre Arena in Hoffman Estates, just outside of Chicago, will house the event on Feb. 24.
Headlining the card will be the rubber match between light heavyweight champion Artem Vakhitov and Saulo Cavalari. Vakhitov (17-5, 7 KOs) has racked up a 6-1 record in Glory and captured the promotion’s belt by edging Cavalari (60-4, 49 KOs) via decision at Glory 28: Paris in March. The Brazilian had previously beaten Vakhitov by split decision at Glory 20 last April. Vakhitov last fought on Nov. 5, when he knocked out Zack Mwekassa at Glory 35: Nice to retain his title.
Another match has been added to the card is “Chopper” Chi Lewis-Parry (8-, 4 KOs) and Catalin “The Carpathian Death” Morosanu (42-10, 25 KOs). The matchup will anchor the Glory 38 SuperFight Series undercard.
Glory 38: Chicago will be aired live on ESPN3 beginning 10:30 p.m. ET/7:30 p.m. PT immediately following the Glory 38 SuperFight Series undercard, which streams live on UFC Fight Pass at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT.
