Glory heavyweight champion Rico Verhoeven confirmed the rumors on a match with Badr Hari. He explained that the bout is not far from happening.

“The rumors are true!”

“In a fight like this, so many things need to be discussed. We can not say yes or no in one month or two months. There’s so many things to come in balance on, but let’s see what it brings,” Verhoeven told “We’re both willing to fight, we both want to fight each other. But in the end, that’s not the most important thing.”

“If the fight Badr vs. Rico comes to a conclusion, then that’s the first fight we’ll do. And then after probably Ismael,” said Verhoeven, who “definitely wasn’t impressed” by Londt’s performance against Gerges.

According to the Glory heavyweight champion, it is now “75 to 80 percent” a done deal.
