When Nieky Holzken makes his return at ONE Fight Night 11 later this week, he will pick up where he left off in his pursuit of 100 career victories.
The Dutchman has 94 professional victories to his credit, and he is getting close to his objective of reaching triple figures. On Friday, June 9, he will compete against the German superstar and former lightweight kickboxing world title challenger Arian Sadikovic. He intends to take the next step toward reaching triple figures in this fight.
His most recent appearance inside the circle came at the organization’s 10-year anniversary event, ONE X, when he was unsuccessful in his match against the Thai phenom Sinsamut Klinmee.
Nevertheless, to his credit, Nieky Holzken was able to exchange opponents in the closing hour of the match.
However, now that everything is in motion, he is ready to resume one last charge up the lightweight kickboxing world of the organization based in Singapore.
In an interview that was conducted exclusively for SCMP MMA, the fighter known as “The Natural” discussed the following topics:
I want to give it my all while I still have the chance. I put in a lot of work in the gym. The conditioning that I have is satisfactory. The sparring went smoothly, and nobody got hurt. Since I’m used to being in Bangkok, I believe that we’ll have a lot of success.”

It is possible that if he puts on a good show inside the illustrious Lumpinee Boxing Stadium, it will be all that is required of him to earn a third opportunity to challenge Regian Eersel for the ONE lightweight kickboxing title.
However, Nieky Holzken does not minimize what his opponent brings to the arena. This is especially true after Nieky Holzken was left in awe by ‘Game Over’s’ performance in his bout against Eersel.
“In my opinion, that was a very good fight. I believe Eersel was too complacent about him, and in my opinion, you should never be complacent with an opponent.
