Rotterdam will act as host city for a massive week in Croatian sports next month. On June 14, the Croatian football team will face the Netherlands in the UEFA Nations League semi-finals, with the finals taking place on June 18.
In the heart of this, Croatia’s Antonio Plazibat (22-4, 16 KO) will face Tariq ‘Cookie’ Osaro (24-2-1, 12 KO) for the interim-GLORY heavyweight title in the main event of the huge GLORY COLLISION 5 event on June 17, live from the Rotterdam Ahoy arena.
Plazibat has emerged as one of the best heavyweights in the world today and has been chasing a chance of lifting GLORY gold ever since he burst into the promotion in 2019.
The entertaining fan favourite comes into this fight having won his past four fights all via knockout.
Osaro booked his spot opposite Plazibat thanks an incredible heavyweight tournament win at GLORY 85 where he stopped top heavyweights Jahfarr Wilnis and Murat Aygun both in devastating fashion.
The duo will now need to put their friendship aside for one night as they battle it out to see who will become the interim-GLORY heavyweight champion.
On the same night, Donovan Wisse (18-1, 10 KO), the best middleweight on the planet today, will put his GLORY middleweight title on the line against the explosive Serkan Ozcaglayan (45-7, 36 KO).
Wisse has beaten the likes of Jason Wilnis, Yousri Belgaroui, Cesar Almeida, & Juri de Sousa, en route to take his place at the top of the division. However, Ozcaglayan provides his most dangerous test to date having an incredible thirty-six knockout victories to his name.
Also announced for GLORY COLLISION 5, Donegi Abena (26-9, 7 KO) will make the first defense of his recently acquired GLORY light heavyweight title when he welcomes the challenge from number two ranked Tarik ‘The Tank’ Khbabez (48-10-1, 27 KO).
Fans can expect more major fights to be announced very soon for this mega night of kickboxing action as GLORY COLLISION 5 will be an event not to be missed.
