GLORY 36: Rico Verhoeven vs. Badr Hari Venue Announced
By Press Release
New York, NY – One of the most anticipated match-ups in combat sports history officially has a home. GLORY, the world’s premier kickboxing league, today announced the location of its year-end show on Saturday, Dec. 10.
König Pilsener Arena in Oberhausen, Germany will serve as the site of GLORY: COLLISION, a special event headlined by the two biggest names in heavyweight kickboxing, as reigning GLORY World Champion Rico “The King of Kickboxing” Verhoeven (48-10, 12 KO) clashes with long-time divisional kingpin Badr “The Golden Boy” Hari (106-12, 93 KO) for a showdown years in the making.
In just four years since joining the organization, 27-year-old Verhoeven has risen from promising contender to undisputed champion, including a 10-fight winning streak inside the GLORY ring and four title defenses. Hari, one of the most consistent fight-finishers of all time and kickboxing’s bad boy, is on a five-fight winning streak of his own (four by way of KO or TKO).
GLORY: COLLISION is scheduled to be a stand-alone four-fight card, preceded by separate five-fight cards for both GLORY 36 and GLORY 36 SuperFight Series featuring world title bouts in multiple weight-classes and a one-night, four-man contender tournament.
