One of the biggest kickboxing events of the decade, GLORY COLLISION 5, will take place on June 17 live from the Rotterdam Ahoy in the Netherlands. Four incredible title bouts top the bill along with a stacked card featuring some of the most exciting fighters in the world.
The interim-GLORY Heavyweight Title will be up for grabs as top ranked heavyweight contender Antonio Plazibat (22-4, 16 KO) collides with the number two ranked Tariq ‘Cookie’ Osaro (24-2-1, 12 KO) in the main event. These teammates will have to put their friendship aside for one night and go head-to-head for GLORY gold.
In the co-main event, Donegi Abena (26-9, 7 KO) will make the first defence of his GLORY Light Heavyweight Title as he takes on Tarik Khbabez (48-10-1, 27 KO). After coming up short in two previous title opportunities, Abena finally the belt in February, and he will do whatever it takes to hold onto it as he faces the always dangerous Khbabez.
Middleweight champion Donovan Wisse (18-1, 10 KO) will face arguably his most dangerous test to date as he welcomes the challenge of the number one ranked middleweight Serkan Ozcaglayan (45-7, 36 KO). Wisse has dispatched the likes of Jason Wilnis, Yousri Belgaroui, Cesar Almeida, & Juri De Sousa en route to the top of the division but with thirty-six knockout victories to his name, Ozcaglayan has proven dynamite in his hands and can win at any moment.
Rounding out the title fights, the best welterweight on the planet, Endy Semeleer (34-1, 17 KO), puts his title on the line against Jay Overmeer (29-4, 15 KO). Semeleer firmly established his position as the king of the division with an incredible shutout victory over Murthel Groenhart at GLORY 85 while Overmeer has taken GLORY by storm with four emphatic victories to earn his spot as number one contender.
Also on the main card, fresh of the biggest win of his career, Michael Boapeah (14-3-1, 6 KO) meets the returning Ulric Bokeme (31-3, 17 KO) in a potential show stealer, and Felipe Micheletti (17-10, 5 KO) faces Ibrahim El Bouni (40-8-1, 22 KO) with both light heavyweights having momentum on their sides.
The COLLISION 5 prelims will feature three exciting fights and will be streamed live for free on GLORY’s YouTube channel.
The always entertaining big Nabil Khachab (25-4-1, 4 KO) clashes with German veteran Vladimir Tok (51-18, 28 KO), Croatia’s Andrej Kedves (18-4, 7 KO) will look to impress on his GLORY debut against top rising UK talent Mareks Pelcis (10-2, 5 KO), and debutants Diaguely Camara (22-4-1, 9 KO) & Eduard Gafencu (17-3, 11 KO) will aim to kick-off the card in style.
