Rigters vs. Wilnis added to GLORY 92

Following his heroics at the GLORY Heavyweight Grand Prix, Levi Rigters (17-2, 8 KO) has been given his next assignment. The number one ranked heavyweight will face a veteran of the GLORY ring, Jahfarr Wilnis (33-14-1, 8 KO), in the co-main event of GLORY 92 on May 18 at the RTM Stage in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.

Rigters had an incredible breakthrough night at the Grand Prix in March showing great heart and determination to reach the final. The 28-year-old overcame adversity in his opening two bouts, being knocked down twice, before facing the ‘King of Kickboxing’ Rico Verhoeven in the final.

Bruised and battered from his two previous bouts, Rigters almost pulled off the unthinkable, landing a crazy spinning backfist to send Verhoeven to the canvas. The champion got back up and ended winning the bout by TKO after a four-knockdown rule. He may not have won the tournament, but Rigters won the admiration of fans around the world.

Now he aims to rebound against a hardened vet of Dutch kickboxing from a legendary family in Jahfarr Wilnis. The older brother of former middleweight champion Jason, the 38-year-old is focused on disrupting Rigters’ plans in order to write the perfect ending to his lengthy career.

Fighting in GLORY since almost the beginning, Wilnis is the longest active heavyweight competing today and has fought seventeen times in the GLORY ring, took part in five one-night tournaments, has victories over the likes of Jamal Ben Saddik, Hesdy Gerges, Brice Guidon, & Tomas Mozny, but has never fought for the title.

Now, almost twelve years after making his debut, he has a chance to catapult himself to the top of the rankings and throw his name into the hat for title contention with a victory over Levi Rigters.
