GLORY 13 might still be a ways off, but that doesn't mean that we can't want to know more about it, right? We already know that it will feature the GLORY Welterweight tournament, featuring Nieky Holzken, Joseph Valtellini, Marc DeBonte and Karapet Karapetyan, but still nothing about Super Fights just yet. There have been names flying around for a while now; Peter Aerts, Jerome Le Banner, you know, the ones that you'd expect for a show in Japan. It turns out that Peter Aerts will indeed be fighting on the GLORY 13 card, if this rumor turns out to be true.
What is that rumor? That Peter Aerts will be squaring off against newly-crowned GLORY 11 Heavyweight Champion Rico Verhoeven. That is a huge fight, as Aerts is reaching the twilight of his career and is looking to retire soon while Rico's career is on a serious uptick thanks to his victories over Saki and Ghita at GLORY 11.
