Wendell Roache a former sparring partner of Dillian Whyte and has trained with Team Redragonz gets a chance of a lifetime
Wendell Roche and Danyo Ilunga will meet for the vacant It’s Showtime 95kg. title. You may remember that title was recently vacated by Tyrone Spong, who it seems will no longer be fighting below the 95kg. weight limit. It looks as though the Dutch-Curacao Roche will certainly have a busy March, as he is also set to face off against Gokhan Saki in the semifinals of the United Glory heavyweight kickboxing tournament.
Chahid Oulad el Hadj will also appear on the card, against Robin van Roosmalen. El Hadj’s reputation is well known at this point and van Roosmalen is willing to dish out hard, looping punches in rapid succession. Van Roosmalen certainly becomes more cautious against highly skilled opponents, but this should be a real action bout.
Other bouts will feature Mike’s Gym product Murthel Groenhart against Belgian Marc de Bonte, Romano Morjoner seeing action against Mo Ben Nasser, and young Dutch prospect Rico Verhoeven taking on Jamal Benz.
Ricardo van den Bos is also set to appear on the card, although an opponent has not been named for him as of yet.
