Four massive title fights were made official at the weigh-ins this morning in Amsterdam ahead of GLORY COLLISION 5 this Saturday, June 17, at the Rotterdam Ahoy in the Netherlands.
The main event will see one of the most important heavyweight contests in recent years go down as Antonio Plazibat (22-4, 16 KO) and Tariq Osaro (24-2-1, 12 KO) put their friendship aside to battle it out for the interim heavyweight title and the opportunity to face the returning Rico Verhoeven later this year.
Despite a whirlwind week that saw champion Donegi Abena withdraw through illness, both Tarik Khbabez (48-10-1, 27 KO) and late replacement Mohamed Amine (29-4, 16 KO) made weight for their heated interim light heavyweight title bout in the co-main event.
Middleweight champion Donovan Wisse (18-1, 10 KO) welcomes the challenge from dangerous KO artist Serkan Ozcaglayan (45-7, 36 KO) and, lastly, welterweight king Endy Semeleer (34-1, 17 KO) puts his title on the line against Dutch star Jay Overmeer (29-4, 15 KO) to round out the four title bouts.
Elsewhere on the main card, GLORY veteran Felipe Micheletti (17-10, 5 KO) meets the in-form Ibrahim El Bouni (62-7-1, 38 KO) and Michael Boapeah (14-3-1, 6 KO) welcomes back the returning Ulric Bokeme (31-3, 17 KO) in the opening bout of the main card.
The free GLORY prelims will feature three exciting contests. Local fan favourite big Nabil Khachab (25-4-1, 4 KO) meets German vet Vladimir Tok (51-18, 28 KO), debutants Diaguely Camara (22-4-1, 9 KO) and Eduard Gafencu (17-3, 12 KO) clash, and top prospects Andrej Kedves (18-4, 7 KO) & Mareks Pelcis (10-2, 5 KO) kick-off the whole card.
