June 18 in Rotterdam Update: Zimmerman vs. Slowinski, Tournament Participants

  • Written by Rian Scalia

We reported last week about the fight card going down in Rotterdam on June 18. Since then, the card has taken another turn. The main event will now feature Errol Zimmerman vs. Paul Slowinski, in place of Sergei Lascenko. Originally, Gokhan Saki was supposed to fight Lascenko but Saki pulled out due to injury and Zimmerman stepped in. Now Lascenko is out and Paul Slowinski is in.

Another addition to the card is Hafid el Boustati taking on Kenneth van Eesvelde. el Boustati is coming off a win over Mohammed Medhar on the May 21st It's Showtime event in Amsterdam.

The heavyweight tournament has also had a bit of a shake up. Mourad Bouzidi, Filip Verlinden and Abderahman Coulibaly are in. To win the tournament, a fighter will have to win 3 times to claim the crown. The full 8 man tournament line up is as follows:

Abderahman Coulibaly
Wendell Roche
Nicolai Falin
Mourad Bouzidi
Filip Verlinden
Utley Mariana
Tommy van Wijngaarden
Dennis Stolzenbach

Overall, a good tournament line up. It features some already well established names such as Mourad Bouzidi and Wendell Roche while there's some good fighters you may not know about in Filip Verlinden and Abderahman Coulibaly.

Thanks to FightStarTV for the updates.
