Video: Rico Verhoeven on GLORY 22 heavyweight championship defense

Rico ‘The Prince’ Verhoeven defends the World Heavyweight Championship against Benjamin ‘Mr Gentleman’ Adegbuyi at GLORY 22 FRANCE on Friday, June 5. It will be his second defense of the belt.

The fight headlines what is one of the most stacked cards in recent kickboxing history. Aside from the main event it has a four-man Lightweight Contender Tournament with former champion Davit Kiria, Thai champion Sitthichai and rising star Josh Jauncey among the lineup.

Verhoeven spent part of his camp at The Blackzilians after being brought in at their invitation to work with Anthony ‘Rumble' Johnson ahead of his recent fight with Daniel Cormier. He is now completing his camp in the Netherlands, where Bill Goldberg caught up with him for this pre-fight interview.
