With the absence of any major promotions hosting events this month, fighters want to stay active and will take fights on smaller shows against lesser known opponents.
Nieky Holzken is doing that on Sunday, February 12 in Eindhoven, Netherlands. He'll fight Karapet Karapetyan and Holzken's WFCA -76.2kg World Title will be on the line. Holzken was originally supposed to face Grega Smole.
Golden Glory Helmond, where Holzken frequently trains at usually hosts an annual event. Holzken has fought at the annual Golden Glory Helmond events for the past few years, picking up two wins in two fights. He last fought on December 23 in Suriname, where he stopped Cyrus Washington.
Other notable names are on the card also. The long time veteran Marco Pique fights the younger It's Showtime veteran Mohammed Medhar. Light heavyweight-turned-heavyweight Ali Cenik takes on the experienced journeyman, Rodney Glunder. Full fight card below.
