Among the card at GLORY 71 on Friday, which is topped by the trilogy between Anissa Meksen and Tiffany Van Soest, we have British kickboxing stars Ammari Diedrick and Luke Whelan also making the next appearances inside the GLORY ring.

Ammari, who is 1-1 in GLORY since a loss in his last fight against Troy Jones in Miami last month, will be taking no prisoners on his quest to get back to winning ways when he faces American Omari Boyd, who is 6-1 in GLORY.

Fellow-Brit, Luke Whelan, returns for his second GLORY bout since winning his debut against Itay Gershon at GLORY 65 Utrecht back in May. He faces ‘Golden Boy’ Nick Chasteen, who has gone on to win his last three GLORY bouts since a debut loss to unbeaten Elvis Gashi last year.

Both British fighters will be heading to the States looking to silence the home crowd when they both face American opponents at GLORY 71, on a huge weekend for GLORY Kickboxing in just over four-weeks time.
