On Friday, Aug. 10, 1STBANK Center in Broomfield, Colo. plays host to GLORY 56 Denver and light heavyweight champion Artem Vakhitov (19-5, 8 KO, fighting out of Russia), who returns to defend his title against No. 4-ranked challenger Danyo "Dibuba" Ilunga (60-13, 45 KO, fighting out of Germany) in the night's headline bout.

Vakhitov enters the championship tilt seeking his fourth consecutive title defense, while the reinvigorated Ilunga looks to collect his third straight victory and his first GLORY belt. In their 2015 meeting at GLORY 25 Milan, Vakhitov earned a unanimous decision and began his current six-fight winning streak

Also, GLORY super bantamweight champion Anissa Meksen (96-3, 30 KO, fighting out of France) looks to make her second title defense and pick up her third victory of the year when she faces Brazil's Jady Menezes (12-2, 5 KO, fighting out of Brazil) at GLORY 56 Denver.

The world title bout is a rematch from GLORY 43 New York, which took place in July of last year. Their first bout – the GLORY debut for both fighters – was won by Meksen, who went on to capture the super bantamweight title and extend her GLORY record to a perfect 5-0. Menezes is out for revenge, stepping back into the GLORY ring for the first time since facing the French fighter.
