GLORY announced this afternoon that kickboxing royalty will once again be seen within the GLORY ring at GLORY 41. Heavyweight Champion Rico Verhoeven will make his return to the ring at GLORY 41 on May 20th against an unnamed opponent. There are a wealth of contenders thanks to the continual GLORY heavyweight contender's tournaments, which means it could be just about any of the top heavyweights in the promotion come May 20th.
Verhoeven was last seen in the ring in December when he squared off with Badr Hari in a bout that left many wanting, with both looking forward to a rematch. The only problem is that Badr Hari returned to prison on Monday and will serve seven months, making a return this year unlikely.
