Everything is set for a stacked card at the RTM Stage.

Divisional champion Donovan Wisse (20-1, 10 KO) will look to make his fourth title defense against No. 1 contender Ulric Bokeme (32-4, 17 KO), No. 2 ranked Michael Boapeah (16-4-1, 7 KO) will take on No. 3 ranked Serkan Ozcaglayan. GLORY returns to Rotterdam and the RTM stage on Saturday evening and will turn the spotlight to the Middleweight division.

The winner of this fight will be crowned the unofficial title of "King of The Hague" since both fighters have origins in that city. With #7 Mohammed Touchassie (16-1, 12 KO) there is yet another "Hagenees" active in the Middleweight division. The young superstar will be looking to continue his impressive rise to the top of the rankings this Saturday evening. To get there he will have to deal with #4 ranked Sergej Braun (43-13, 27 KO) first.

In the co-main event, Levi Rigters (17-2, 8 KO) will return after his impressive performance at the Heavyweight Grand Prix earlier this year. Originally scheduled to fight veteran Jahfarr Wilnis who had to pull out because of an injury. Rigters will be facing debutant Nico "Big Sexy" Horta (22-8, 3 KO) who comes in at a staggering 136.7kg. The 28-year-old  Dutchman holds the #1 contender position at the moment and would thus be in line to challenge "The King of Kickboxing" Rico Verhoeven next.

Originally two other Middleweights were supposed to come into action, but after the weigh-ins, news started to spread, that the bout between Imad Hadar (32-4, 17 KO) and #6 Juri De Sousa (32-4, 17 KO) had been canceled. Hadar's team made a statement on Instagram saying the 27-year-old Rotterdam native was “strongly advised” against fighting, after a particularly difficult weight cut. GLORY matchmaker Robbie Timmers told Beyond Kickboxing that he is hoping to reschedule the fight to a later date.
