GLORY: COLLISION 6 will see the heavyweight title kickboxing battle with the long-reigning division king Rico Verhoeven against the interim champion Tariq “Cookie” Osaro. This kickboxing fight card will also feature the light heavyweight and middleweight titles on the line on Nov. 4.
Rico Verhoeven has been at the center of GLORY and the face of kickboxing for the past decade. The Dutch-born striker is looking to add an eleventh title defense to his name.
His opponent Osaro has had an incredible 2023. First, he won a one-night grand prix all by way of a first-round knockout. The Dutch-Nigerian fighter then defeated Antonio Plazibat by TKO to capture the interim crown.
The Nov. 4 fight card will also feature a light heavyweight title match as Donegi Abena is looking to add a first title defense to his name against late-replacement Mohamed Touchassie. Morocco’s Tarik Khbabez was forced to pull out of the fight due to a hand injury.
Middleweight king Donovan Wisse will look to out-point the thunderous striker Michael Boapeah in their middleweight title tilt. The middleweight division will also see knockout strikers Serkan Ozcaglayan and Ulric Bokeme fight to get back into title contention.
Also, Hamicha makes his long-awaited return to the competitive welterweight division against streaking Diaguely Camara. Welterweight will also feature a long-awaited rematch between title contender Jay Overmeer and King of Kings welterweight champion Chico Kwasi. Plus, fans will want to keep their eye on the light heavyweight showdown between the young knockout striker Stefan Latescu as he faces the highly-skilled Ibrahim El Bouni.
Soufian Abdelkhalek was in a car accident the evening before the weigh-ins and was pulled from his match. He suffered no injuries but was not cleared to fight.
The kickboxing fight card will broadcast live from the GelreDome on Nov. 4. For weigh-in results see below.
