Amsterdam is a city synonymous with the sport of kickboxing and in December GLORY becomes part of that rich history. GLORY 26 AMSTERDAM was today confirmed for Friday, December 4 at the RAI Arena.

To mark the occasion, and to end 2015 on a high note, the card will feature two World Championship Title fights plus a Featherweight Contender Tournament to determine who will be the next challenger for the World Featherweight Championship.

The double-headlined card will see Rico ‘The Prince’ Verhoeven (46-10, 11 KO’s) defending his World Heavyweight Championship and Nieky ‘The Natural’ Holzken (87-11, 46 KO’s) defending his World Welterweight Championship.

Verhoeven’s opponent will be determined by the four-man Heavyweight Contender Tournament taking place next week, Friday October 9 at GLORY 24 DENVER.

Benjamin "Mister Gentleman" Adegbuyi of Romania faces off with Croatian southpaw Mladen "The Scorpion Sting" Brestovac and explosive Australian brawler Ben "The Guvner" Edwards faces Dutch kickboxing specialist Jahfarr Wilnis in the semi-finals. The tournament winner will face Verhoeven in December.

A four-man Welterweight Contender Tournament is also planned for GLORY 2
5 MILAN, which takes place on Friday, November 6 at the PalaIpa in Monza, Milan. The tournament line-up will be confirmed in the near future.

One participant is already confirmed for the GLORY 26 AMSTERDAM Featherweight Contendeer Tournament. Mosab ‘The Jaguar’ Amrani is #1 in the contender listings already and has challenged for the title once before. He will get a second shot, if he can win the tournament in Amsterdam.

What a great night of fights! I was there live, damn Rico really is starting to prove peope who doubted him wrong.

There were no problems during or around the event, which is great for Kickboxing in the Netherlands.
