GLORY 44 set for Sears Centre in Chicago on Aug. 25

Returning for the second time this year, the world's premier kickboxing league will once again visit Sears Centre Arena in Hoffman Estates, Ill., for GLORY 44: “Chicago” and GLORY 44: “SuperFight Series” on Fri., Aug. 25, 2017.

Sears Centre Arena has been played home to three historic striking events already, with capacity crowds cheering on the organization's biggest stars at GLORY 11 (Oct. 2013), GLORY 27 (Feb. 2016) and GLORY 38 (Feb. 2017).

"When we announced GLORY 38 late last year, I talked about making the Chicago area a regular stop on our event calendar and the history that's been already been made with our partners at Sears Centre Arena," said GLORY CEO Jon J Franklin. "Well, we're back! GLORY 38 was a massive success thanks to our fans and we're looking to create that same energy and excitement once again with a big-time fight card."

Illinois native and hometown hero Richard "Maximus" Abraham (11-5, 4 KO, fighting out of the United States) will battle a worthy welterweight challenger, while Catalin "The Carpathian Death" Morosanu (44-10, 26 KO, fighting out of Romania), who captured the hearts and minds at GLORY 38 with his passion, prepares for a heavyweight foe.

Match-ups for GLORY 44 Chicago and GLORY 44: “SuperFight Series” will be announced in the coming weeks.

All tickets (including general admission) for GLORY 44: “Chicago” and GLORY 44: “SuperFight Series” will be available for online purchase at and the Sears Centre Arena box office.
