Five years after his last defeat against Rico Verhoeven, the Moroccan Jamal Ben Seddik has a new opportunity to take his revenge on the Dutch kick-boxer, who lost Badr Hari in 2019, and in the process win the belt of world champion in weight heavy, during the fight which must oppose the two men on January 30, 2021.
Considered to be the bête noire of Moroccan fighters, Rico Verhoeven could well fall against Jamal Ben Seddik next January. Indeed, the Moroccan who has been preparing for this meeting for years could take his revenge and regain the belt of world champion in Verhoeven.
Moreover, the two men had already faced each other in 2011 and 2017. Ben Seddik had won the first fight by TKO in the 2e round, while the Dutchman won the second fight also by TKO in the 5e round.
Note that before this fight, the Moroccan champion of the discipline, Badr Hari, will return to the ring on December 19 to face Benjamin Adegbuyi.
The winner of this fight will meet that of the shock Ben Seddik-Verhoeven.
