GLORY 19 booked for Hampton Coliseum on Feb. 6 in Virginia

GLORY Sports International

Better late than never!

After postponing its original date of Dec. 19, 2014, GLORY will return to the Spike TV airwaves on Feb. 6, 2015 at 9 p.m. ET from inside the Hampton Coliseum in Hampton, Virginia. That's where world heavyweight champion Rico Verhoeven (44-9-0, 10 KOs) will defend his title against Errol "Bonecrusher" Zimmerman (103-11-1, 44 KOs) in their highly-anticipated rubber match dating back to January of 2012.

Verhoeven -- who was stopped by Zimmerman in their first go-round before winning a decision in their rematch -- will be making his first title defense since winning the vacant heavyweight championship last June by defeating top contender Daniel Ghita.

Additional bouts for GLORY 19, which is expected to play host to GLORY's one-night, four-man welterweight contender tournament, will be announced in the coming weeks. Tickets for GLORY 19, meanwhile, will be available for purchase online at as early as this Wednesday (Dec. 24).
