Dutch kickboxing superstar Peter Aerts has announced that he will retire, win or lose, after his upcoming fight with Rico Verhoeven. Aerts is forty-three years old and has one-hundred and thirty-seven professional kickboxing fights under his belt. He is widely considered one of the greatest kickboxers of all time, and is a three-time K-1 World Grand Prix Champion.
His final fight will be one of his most difficult tests. “The Dutch Lumberjack” will certainly have his hands full against fellow Dutchman and current Glory Heavyweight Champion Rico Verhoeven.
Verhoeven is on a four-fight winning streak, having most recently defeated Gokhan Saki and Daniel Ghita in the same night to claim the Glory Heavyweight Championship.
Glory 13 will be held on Saturday, December 21st at the Ariake Colosseum in Tokyo, Japan.
