Gokhan Saki to Rico Verhoeven: 'You Don't Have the Balls to Fight Me'

  • Published in Glory

When it rains it pours, and for former GLORY Light Heavyweight Champion Gokhan Saki, he's had enough of watching from the sidelines. The former champion, who has been attempting to make his comeback under the GLORY banner at light heavyweight to no avail, has been calling out the heavyweight champion for months now, with it only intensifying thanks to the announcement of the Lazaar/Verhoeven showdown scheduled for GLORY 41.

Earlier today Saki took to Instagram where he called out Verhoeven and he did not pick and choose his words.

@ricoverhoeven rico rico the immigration service called me, they wanna give you a refugee status because you are always running away from me. Pfff what a fleeing behavior, did you always run away as a kid when there where confrontations? Again you choose another opponent because you think you can stay the "CHAMP" longer that way. But If you think you just can run over Ismael, you are wrong. And deep inside you know you are not the real CHAMP. Even your management knows that you dont have the balls to fight me because a chance of losing should be excluded so you can show your face longer on tv shows acting fake. I'm going to find real men who want a real fight. Real men who never refuse a challenge and when they say that on tv they really mean it, they dont say it just for the show. I dont even wanna fight someone like you no more, there is no pride in you, so there is no Glory in the win. Too bad that getting bigger and more musculair doesnt give you balls. You really need to grow a pair. Rico rico rico ze hebben me net gebeld van de IND immigratiedienst, ze willen jou een vluchtelingstatus geven omdat je van me vlucht. Wat een vluchtgedrag ey, rende je vroeger als klein kind ook weg tijdens confrontaties? Weer kies je een andere tegenstander met de gedachte dat je "CHAMP" kan blijven. Maar als je denkt dat je even over Ismael heen loopt heb je het mis. En diep van binnen weet je dat je niet de echte CHAMP bent. Zelfs je management weet dat je niet de ballen hebt om tegen mij te staan omdat een kans op verliezen uitgesloten moet blijven zodat je langer op tv shows nep kan blijven doen. Ik zal maar echte mannen zoeken om tegen te vechten. Echte mannen die geen uitdaging uit de weg gaan en het ook menen en niet alleen op tv zeggen for the show. Ik wil niet eens tegen mensen als jij meer vechten, er zit geen trots in je en dus is er ook geen glorie in een overwinning. Jammer dat gespierder en groter worden er niet voor zorgt dat je wat ballen krijgt. #realmen #realfighters #fake #champ #ricoverhoeven #glory #kickboxing #boxing #fight #knockouts #noballs #crybaby

Robin van Roosmalen vs. Petchpanomrung Kiatmookao Official For GLORY 41 Den Bosch

  • Published in Glory

While GLORY 41 Den Bosch was already announced, Dutch fans have been wondering when the promotion would release more details and tickets for the event. Now, thankfully, in the wake of GLORY 39's Featherweight Tournament, the promotion has formerly announced the first details for the May 20th event in Den Bosch, the Netherlands. 

The feature attraction will be former Featherweight Champion Robin van Roosmalen looking to regain the title against tough Thai Petchpanomrung Kiatmookao. Petchpanomrung is hot off of his GLORY 39 tournament victory and will be looking to make an almost-immediate impact on GLORY after just two appearances by winning the title in his third. Of course, Robin will be looking to take the title back after it was stripped from him for missing weight in his defense against Matt Embree and to make the Netherlands proud. 

Also announced is yet another heavyweight contender's tournament. That will make a third contender awaiting GLORY Heavyweight Champion Rico Verhoeven and one has to wonder if they'll just do a fourth contender's tournament to have four contenders, then run a final contender's tournament and if they are creating a low-key 16-man tournament and just never announced it. There are no names announced for it just yet. 

The SuperFight Series will be headlined by Michael Duut vs. Mourad Bouzidi and also featuring Mike Lemaire vs. Zhou Wei. More will be announced shortly.

Rico Verhoeven vs. Ismael Lazaar Headlining GLORY 41 SuperFight Series

  • Published in Glory

Hot on the heels of a series of announcements, GLORY has announced that Rico Verhoeven will square off against former Enfusion Heavyweight Champion Ismael Lazaar to headline the GLORY 41 SuperFight Series in Den Bosch, The Netherlands. This makes the SuperFight Series packed full of stars and action, considering Robin van Roosmalen vs. Petchpanomrung Kiatmookao for the Featherweight title is on the same card.

This will be a five-round, non-title super fight between the two big men, with Lazaar coming off of a rather successful run in Enfusion that included holding their world title before losing it to Jahfarr Wilnis. Also announced is Murthel Groenhart vs. Harut Grigorian in a bout that the entire Welterweight division will be watching very carefully.

GLORY Heavyweight Champion Rico Verhoeven Returns at GLORY 41

  • Published in Glory

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.

Hesdy Gerges vs. Chi Lewis-Parry Headlining GLORY 41

  • Published in Glory

GLORY announced the finalized (well, as final as they can be) fight card for GLORY 41 Den Bosch today. The GLORY 41 SuperFight Series has somehow gotten even better with one of the most exciting fighters in the featherweight division, Zakaria Zouggary, making his way to GLORY to fight Anvar Boynazarov. The SFS card, which is capped off by Robin van Roosmalen vs. Petchpanomrung for the Featherweight Championship and Rico Verhoeven against Ismael Lazaar is perhaps one of the best GLORY shows on paper in a very long time.

GLORY 41 proper is a bit more subdued, featuring another heavyweight contender's tournament, this time with some fresh names. Anderson "Braddock" Silva will have another chance at redemption against Giannis Stoforidis while Xavier Vigney returns to fight D'Angelo Marshall. There is a featherweight bout between Chenglong Zhang and Wilson Sanches Mendes and a headliner (well, co-headliner) of the recently-cancelled bout between Hesdy Gerges and Chi Lewis-Parry.
