Glory confirms the possibility of a third duel between the two best kickboxers Badr Hari and Rico Verhoeven. But before this fight, the current heavyweight world champion will have to face the Belgo-Moroccan, Jamal Ben Saddik.
The sports organization, Glory, intends to give a new chance to the Belgo-Moroccan Jamal Ben Saddik who will face the world champion of the heavyweights, Rico Verhoeven. Glory CEO Marshall Zelaznik says it is time to give Saddik the opportunity to try his hand at the world title again. He promises that his team will work for his organization.
In December 2017, the Belgo-Moroccan was eliminated in the fifth round by Verhoeven in a fight for the title of world kickboxing champion. To date, Ben Saddik, 29, seems to have made progress. Hence a second chance.
It will be the first Glory event of 2020 to take place in February. “It’s going to be a big fight,” hopes Zelaznik. “We want to do it in a big stadium. The hall in Utrecht is not large enough,” he said. Glory’s CEO says the atmosphere that reigned during the last duel between Badr Hari and Rico Verhoeven at GelreDome must be there.
He also said that these two best kickboxers will again cross their gloves. According to him, it is absolutely in Glory’s interest to organize a duel between these two athletes again.
