One of the top prospects in all of kickboxing, Donovan Wisse is quickly making a name for himself. The 23-year-old has 15 wins and one loss since turning pro in 2016. 5-1 in GLORY, his first win against Kevin Van Heeckeren at GLORY 59 is one to remember.
Less than 20 seconds into the fight Wisse hit a left shot to the jaw that knocked down Van Heeckeren. From that point on he applied a lot of pressure. High kicks, knees and head shots were key here, with Wisse playing the aggressor.
Van Heeckeren was trying to avoid Wisse in the second, as he wasn’t planted or hitting as hard as he could. Meanwhile, Wisse continued to bring forward, tiring Van Heeckeren out. Van Heeckeren showed some life in the third, and while Wisse was still learning, he showed signs of brilliance.
Wisse ended up winning via decision. You can check out the full fight, via GLORY, in the video above.
