Well shortly after it got out that Robin van Roosmalen had signed with It's Showtime and would be fighting in the K-1 Final 16, Glory fired back with a press release. In the press release, it states that Robin had a contract with Knock Out Investments/Golden Glory that is still valid. According to Glory, Robin's contract says that KOI/Golden Glory have the exclusive right to represent him and that he authorized KOI/GG to sign contracts for him.
According to Glory, Robin van Roosmalen accepted the offer to fight Dzhabar Askerov on May 26 earlier this week. The offer also included a multiple fight deal and Glory just had to add that it "was overall a much better offer then the offer of It’s Showtime/K-1." Both KOI/GG supposedly accepted the offer and Robin was bound by contract.
KOI/GG tried to reach van Roosmalen but were unable to get in contact with him. They say they warned him multiple times not to sign elsewhere and now will be pursuing legal actions not only at van Roosmalen but also at It's Showtime and K-1. According to Glory, It's Showtime were aware that KOI/GG represented van Roosmalen and even pointed out to them that he was bound by contract, saying that It's Showtime/K-1 wrongfully acted in entering into an agreement with Robin van Roosmalen.
