Nieky Holzken is going to be competing with ONE Championship for the foreseeable future.
Holzken was teasing on his Instagram a few days back that big news would be coming after the weekend elapsed. The Natural followed through with the announcement on that very same playform.

The ONE Championship combatant since November 2018 has also carved his name out on circuits like Glory Kickboxing and K1 MAX to name a couple.
Holzken has notable professional records in Muay Thai, Boxing, and especially Kickboxing endeavors. He has multiple Dutch, European, and World titles to his credit in that combat discipline.
Nieky Holzken has over one hundred kickboxing bouts with close to sixty knockout victories.
Holzken’s knockout metrics in professional boxing sit at just shy of eighty percent. A percentile he seemingly wants to bolster even further against The Problem Child Jake Paul.

The former Glory Kickboxing welterweight world champion has previously aimed to covet gold in ONE Championship. But has just come up shy in the pursuit.
After a pair of losses to Regian Eersel, Nieky Hozken has put together back-to-back victories across different combat sports.
Nieky Holzken got back to the win column by halting Elliot Compton with his vaunted body shot at ONE: Big Bang II. The devastating hook to the liver forced an end to their December 2020 Kickboxing contest during the first frame of the bout.
Holzken’s last outing was a Muay Thai affair. He defeated John Wayne Parr via second-round head kick during their April clash as part of ONE on TNT III.
