Yousri Belgaroui announced through Instagram that he will not fight next september at GLORY 59 in Amsterdam. ‘Because of health benefits’, according to his Instagram. He received a 90-day suspension from the NY ASC.
A suspension after a knockout is not a strange thing because a fighter needs a certain recovery period. During GLORY New York, Belgaroui crashed through a hard knockout by Alex Pereira. Needless to say that GLORY Amsterdam misses an interesting fight. Belgaroui had prepared thoroughly and was ready to enter the ring for his home crowd.
During GLORY 59 Amsterdam, Rico Verhoeven will make his appearance against an opponent to be determined. Murthel Groenhart will enter the ring against Mohammed Jaraya. Groenhart who also fights for his own audience is trained by Belgaroui, both training at Mike’s Gym.
