Rico Verhoeven and Remy Bonjasky Agree to Fight

If you thought that it sounded crazy that Rico Verhoeven and Remy Bonjasky would fight in 2017, you weren't the only one. As it turns out, it is perhaps closer to reality than we all thought. After the impossible happened last year and Rico Verhoeven stood toe-to-toe with Badr Hari in a GLORY ring, it looks like Remy Bonjasky will once again fight against the best in the world. 

Bonjasky, a three-time K-1 World Grand Prix Champion, will look to make his return after his retirement bout in 2014 with Mirko Cro Cop. Bonjasky had retired once prior after a recurring eye injury sidelined him in late 2009, only to return in 2013 with mixed results. Bonjasky challenged the winner of Rico/Badr and now it looks like he has his sights set on fighting Verhoeven. The video below if from Fight Stadium, as is the text below.

There has been no official confirmation from GLORY on the bout just yet.

Short translation:

Rico challenged Remy after Rico beat Badr in December. Remy said in december he would fight the winner of this fight (he expected Badr to win).

Remy told the Dutch tv-host Humberto Tan that he accepted Rico's challenge and that he needs 6 months to prepare himself. Despite his age (41) he is convinced he will beat Rico because he is still healthy. Remy also referred to George Foreman who was a boxing world champion at the age of 55.
