Glory 24 is set for Denver, CO on October 9th. The night’s main event will feature the rubber match between Glory Middleweight Champion Artem Levin and challenger Joe Schilling.
The two fighters have split a pair of fights with both fights coming in tournament finals. Schilling won their first encounter in an extra round decision at Glory 10 in 2013. Levin won the second by unanimous decision in the Finals of the Glory 17 Last Man Standing Tournament in 2014.
Schilling has fought in Kickboxing only once since his last fight with Levin. He defeated Robert Thomas in a one sided unanimous decision at Glory 19 in February of this year. After his bout with Thomas, Schilling had two MMA bouts for Bellator. Schilling lost both bouts with his latest against Hisaki Kato ending in a highlight reel knockout that kept him from fighting in a Kickboxing bout at Bellator 142: Dynamite because of the medical suspension handed down to him.
Levin has had one fight since being crowned the Glory Middleweight Champion. He foughtSimon Marcus at Glory 21 this past May. Levin was able to retain his middleweight title after the bout ended in a controversial draw.
Their first two fights have been scheduled for three rounds, with the first going an extra round. The rubber match is scheduled for five rounds since it is for the Glory Middleweight Championship.
