The fight cards for: GLORY Collision, GLORY 36 and SuperFight Series on, December 10 in Germany, have been announced, in what will be one of the most historic months of kickboxing since the “Golden era.”
Headlining the overall night of 15 potential bangers will be, Badr Hari vs Rico Verhoeven, in a long awaited grudge match between the “old skool and new school” of the sport.
Co-headlining the main Collision fight card will be, Nieky Holzken defending his Welterweight title against Cedric Doumbé. Also, Ismael Londt will have a Heavyweight showdown with Jamal Ben Saddik which, is unlikely to go past the first round, considering the power of both men.
