Dumpy Cos Gruenhart! The agonizing fall appears to be playing tricks on Groenhart. Dombe hits the Dutchman hard again and although Gruenhart woke up at nine, the referee decided that was enough.
Dumpy with the first knockout party! He knocked on the ground, but he could get up at the right time. Moments later, Gruenhart tried to hit the other one again, but crossed the rope and then painfully struck the billboards with his back.

Start! They both won once over the other, so who is stronger this time in five rounds?

Who will compete against Verhoeven in the final? This could be 25-year-old Levi Riggers or 28-year-old Tariq Khabbeez. Rigters debuted at GLORY last month and is considered one of kickboxing’s greatest talents. The 28-year-old Khabeez is also a newcomer to GLORY. Khabbeez, who lives in The Hague, came from the ONE Championship Federation at the end of last year, which is basically a big association in Asia.
The two often argued with each other, but right after the fight, respect for each other is shown. “I always thought you were a great man and you were the best,” Gerges says. Verhoeven replies: “Respect is mutual, you stand there today and I think that’s really cool.”
In fact, the jury also decided that Rico Verhoeven was the winner in the fight.

2/3 Verhoeven takes a good low kick and stuns his opponent. Gerges falls, but wakes up almost instantly to respond.
End of round 1/3 Gentlemen show respect for each other at the end of the first round of boxing. During the fight, it wasn’t really loose yet, because it’s a lot like chess in the ring.
