Kickboxing fans can rejoice because while Rico Verhoeven might seem like an unstoppable force, there will be opposition for him and it will be chosen from a pool of some of the very top heavyweights in the world today. Today GLORY announces that the GLORY 29 Heavyweight Contender tournament will feature Enfusion and Kunlun Heavyweight Champion Jahfarr Wilnis, top contender Anderson "Braddock" Silva and the newly-signed Ismael Londt. The fourth name has yet to be announced.
