Nieky Holzken has an opponent for his ONE Super Series debut in Jakarta, Indonesia on 17 November.
The former Glory champion and Dutch kickboxing star will face decorated Muay Thai fighter Cosmo Alexandre of Brazil, it was announced. The bout will be held under kickboxing rules at a “catch weight” of 78 kg.
It will be the second time Holzken and Alexandre meet in the ring. Holzken defeated Alexandre by split decision back in May 2010 at an It’s Showtime event in Amsterdam.
The bout will be Holzken’s first kickboxing bout since his loss to Glory contender Alim Nabiyev last December. Alexandre competed in ONE back in April. Cosmo defeated Elliot Compton of Australia by stoppage in the second round.
In other ONE Super Series bouts on the card, Yohann Drai of France faces Brown Pinas in a Muay Thai bout, and Lerdsila Phuket Top Team meets Sok Thy. The Lerdsila-Thy bout will also be under Muay Thai rules.
The event, titled One: Warrior’s Dream, also has eleven MMA bouts scheduled, and is headlined by an MMA title fight.
