Nieky Holzken, sporting Yokkao trunks, made his successful return to the boxing ring yesterday after about a year away. Holzken stepped into the ring in the Netherlands at Golden Glory Helmond against Ismael Altintas, whom he made short work of in round two. Holzken was proudly sporting his Yokkao trunks in the ring as he moved on to 5-0 as a professional with Yokkao promoter Stefania Picelli and BeNeLux Yokkao distributor Peter Wetzer at ringside to provide support.
It looks like Holzken is over that injury from the car accident and might be back in kickboxing action in the very near future as well, with us knowing that he has his eyes on Joseph Valtellini and that GLORY Welterweight Championship. Yokkao's next event is a double-header, Yokkao 10 and 11 on October 11th. Expect to see Liam Harrison, Kongsak, Pakorm, Jordan Watson, Piscitello, Crice and more in action on October 11th.
