One of the top kickboxing organizations in combat sports has been going through its own issues financially.
Aaron Bronsteter of TSN reported that GLORY Kickboxing has filed for bankruptcy.
Fighters haven’t been paid for GLORY Collision 2 from this past December.
This comes after a report by Giovanni Tjin, who also stated that GLORY has closed down its Amsterdam offices.
Middleweight Yousri Belgaroui ended up posting the following on his Instagram story:
“Sad news for all GLORY fans, fighters and staff. Every end is the start of something new.”
Commentator and kickboxer Joseph Valtellini also hinted that something was going on with a few cryptic tweets, reports fightsports.tv.
GLORY became the home to stars like Israel Adesanya, Badr Hari, Semmy Schilt, Alex Pereira, Tiffany van Soest, Sitthichai Sitsongpeenong, and Petchpanomrung Kiatmookao.
The promotion was founded in 2012 and has often collaborated with those willing to put on events.
The coronavirus pandemi had very hard hit, which sadly could be lethal for the kickboxing giant.
