Dirk Kuyt will make his debut at the boxing ring in Rotterdam at the end of October. The former footballer, among others, Feyenoord and the Dutch national team takes on the challenge to take part in it New event Hit It Kickboxer Rico Verhoeven is the driving force behind it.
“As a former footballer, I know what it means to be in the arena,” Kuyt said in a video message to Humberto. It’s been four years since I stopped playing football. And of course I miss that tension and that fight to win the match.”
I did quite a few other sports, such as tennis, swing, and fitness. But to be standing in a loop, as Rico has done so many times in his life, is new to me. So I want to take that fight against another celebrity. From now on I will train hard. And also because it’s all for a good cause.”
It is not yet known who will be the opponent of the 41-year-old, who is currently working as a football analyst. “At least he doesn’t fight me,” Verhoeven laughed, who would be competing that evening against an “adversary of high stature.”
