GLORY,  finalized a 13-fight card for the promotion’s visit to Johan Cruijff ArenA in Amsterdam on Saturday, Sept. 29.

Heavyweight world champion Rico "The King of Kickboxing" Verhoeven (54-10, 16 KO, fighting out of the Netherlands) headlines GLORY 59 Amsterdam, seeking a record-setting eighth title defense.

The challenger hoping to halt Verhoeven’s unprecedented championship reign – which began in June of 2014 – will be dangerous striker Guto Inocente (35-8, 17 KO, fighting out of Brazil).

Verhoeven has won an astounding 16 fights in a row inside the GLORY ring, crafting a resume that includes victories over legends such as Badr Hari, Peter Aerts, Daniel Ghita and Gokhan Saki, as well as contemporaries Benjamin Adegbuyi, Jamal Ben Saddik, Errol Zimmerman and Mladen Brestovac.

Brazil’s Inocente has only tasted defeat once since joining GLORY and his wins against top contenders Benjamin Adegbuyi, D’Angelo Marshall and Hesdy Gerges have vaulted him to No. 3 in the heavyweight rankings.

Fans in attendance at GLORY 59 Amsterdam will also witness the crowning of an undisputed featherweight king, as the division’s two-time champion Robin “Poker Face” van Roosmalen (40-7, 21 KO, fighting out of the Netherlands) returns to take on interim champion “The Professor” Petchpanomrung Kiatmookao (160-36-2, 27 KO, fighting out of Thailand) in the night’s co-headline bout.

Van Roosmalen is one of GLORY’s most decorated champions, amassing a 16-3 record within the promotion and having the distinction of being the only GLORY athlete to capture world titles in two weight classes – lightweight (once) and featherweight (twice, including his current reign).

With Van Roosmalen sidelined due to injury, Kiatmookao, better known as “Petch” defeated former interim champion Kevin Vannostrand last month at GLORY 55 New York to earn his own interim featherweight title. The 23-year-old Thai fighter will be looking for revenge against Van Roosmalen, the only man to defeat him in eight appearances under the GLORY banner.
