Rico ‘The Prince’ Verhoeven has made an impressive rise through the ranks of the GLORY heavyweight division.
From being a fresh young face in the 16-man GLORY 4 TOKYO tournament he has risen in skill, confidence and character to become an assured young champion of one of the hardest-hitting divisions in all of fight sports.
On Friday, June 5 he will make his second defense of the GLORY World Heavyweight Championship when he faces Romanian contender Benjamin Adegbuyi, who rides a three-fight win streak into this bout.
In this interview Verhoeven talks about bringing a high standard of technicality to the heavyweight division and confidently states, “I am going to be a champion for a very long time”.
