GLORY 88 Fight Card is set for September 9

GLORY kickboxing makes its triumphant return to France this Saturday, September 9, with GLORY 88 taking place from the sold-out Dome De Paris. The event will begin at 8 pm CEST | 7 pm BST | 2 pm ET | 11 am PT.

Kickboxing icon Badr Hari (106-16, 92 KO) takes on combat sports veteran James McSweeney (46-6, 28 KO) in the main event. The winner will qualify for the historic end-of-year GLORY Grand Prix where eight men compete in a one-night tournament for a chance to win $500,000.

In the co-main event, America’s Tiffany van Soest (24-6-2, 9 KO) will defend her GLORY super bantamweight title against rival Sarah Moussaddak (8-3, 1 KO) in a rematch of their fight from last year. Known as the P4P best female kickboxer on the planet, this will be van Soest’s retirement fight as the 34-year-old will hang up the gloves on her storied career.

French heavyweights Nordine Mahieddine (27-15, 12 KO) and Abderahmane Coulibaly (58-20-1, 25 KO) clash in what should be a barnburner fight between two heavy hitters and top ten featherweights Denis Wosik (37-8-1, 9 KO) and Berjan Peposhi (27-3, 16 KO) square-off.

Elsewhere at GLORY 88, top light heavyweights Pascal Touré (18-5, 6 KO) and Stefan Latescu (11-2, 5 KO) make their GLORY debuts, veteran Karim Ghajji (103-17-1, 53 KO) returns to the promotion and will face Serbia’s Nikola Todorovic (26-3, 14 KO), the popular Iliass Hammouche (32-6, 7 KO) faces Germany’s Florian Kroger (19-9, 6 KO), and Ilyass Chakir (16-3-1, 6 KO) makes his GLORY debut and takes on France’s Diaguely Camara (23-4-1, 10 KO) in the first fight of the night.
