. . . from his Glory title defenses?
I remember someone mentioned "six figures" counting sponsors but don't know anything more specific.
Probably 100k or more.
Non title fight: 75k
Title fight: 100k+
Badr fight 200k+ (guaranteed basic fee)
In the last 2 years Rico had approximately 150 appearances on Dutch tv-shows. Average fee to show up: €2500,-
Plus he has a couple of sponsors (no info about those figures)
Check out his villa (worth €700k):
No swimming pool? And a small TV in the bedroom?
Can't be that rich
Im surprised that villa isn't worth more in a country as densely populated as the Netherlands.
700K is pretty cheapgpr
Yeah 700k seems cheap for a house like that. I'd expect at least the double. Unless it's on the country side or a small town
Halsteren is indeed a small town. Still looks like a nice home.
I think Rico makes more money then most ever did in the k1 time. No big prices but a steady income. Also "wrote" a bestseller and is more on tv shows then he is in the gym.
He is an absolutely excellent kickboxer. I don't care for the glamour or private side of any fighter but he seems to have balanced his success with that outside of the ring.
Handsome dude. Great physique. It was inevitable.
My sadness is that he is a few years too late to mix it up with the active pool of top HWs from the 90s/early 2000s, so we'll never know how good he truely is but hype and media, looks and lifestyle often convince fans that somebody is greather than they are.
I'm just glad that he looks after himself and keeps fighting.
You can also judge him by his technical abilities in the ring, which are at a very high level. Whether he would be able to consistently put on these performances against a deeper talent pool like in the past is a fair question. He's not all smoke and mirrors however.
