GLORY signs multi-fight television deal with CBS Sports Network

GLORY
GLORY has found a television home in the United States.

The upstart kickboxing organization has signed a multi-fight TV deal with CBS Sports Network, the promotion confirmed with MMAFighting.com Wednesday.

As a result, GLORY 7 from Milan, headlined by Giorgio Petrosyan vs. Hafid El Boustati, will air via tape delay on the network on Sunday, April 21 at 1:00 a.m. ET.

CBS Sports Network will also air GLORY 8 via tape delay from Tokyo on May 5, which will feature a one-night, single-elimination featherweight (143 pounds) tournament.

Promotion officials wouldn't confirm or deny whether future events will air live on CBS Sports Network.

GLORY dabbled in the world of mixed martial arts late last year when they co-promoted a DREAM event in Japan, which was the first GLORY card to air on CBS Sports Network, but officials also wouldn't discuss whether this TV deal would include possible MMA events.

CBS Sports Network is currently in 48 million homes and available to 100 million homes nationwide.
