Zimmerman Takes Break From Kickboxing

Post by TeamJohnPerretti on Wed Apr 22, 2015 1:47 am

It was perhaps a bit anticlimactic how the rematch between GLORY Heavyweight Champion Rico Verhoeven and Errol Zimmerman ended at GLORY 20, but it's hard to ignore the impact that it'll have for the coming years in the Heavyweight division in kickboxing. The fight ended with Zimmerman down on the mat, grasping at his knee in what was a worst case scenario for a warrior like him. Zimmerman is a guy who prides himself as being tough and if he's going to lose a fight he's going to actually lose it, not go down to injury. Yet that is exactly what happened.


We knew that Zimmerman would be out for a while, but it looks like Zimmerman will be taking a year off from kickboxing and much like Tyrone Spong who suffered a horrific leg injury against Gokhan Saki last year, Zimmerman will be returning to the ring as soon as he's healthy but will be doing so in professional boxing instead of kickboxing.


In an interview with Dutch FunX Zimmerman announced that he will need to take at least a year off from kickboxing to heal up his knee, but that he doesn't intend to just sit idly by and wait to return to the ring. Instead he'll focus on professional boxing much like we've seen from the likes of other GLORY stars like Marc de Bonte, Nieky Holzken and Tyrone Spong. Here's hoping that all goes well with his recovery and we get to see him in the ring again soon, even if it is a boxing ring.

really sucks to see the major stars leaving because Glory are fucking cheap and would rather pay for Mike Tyson and Bill fucking Goldberg to promote them. Than actually pay Badr hari, Saki, spong what they're worth
