Rico Verhoeven was born in Bergen op Zoom, Netherlands. He began learning martial arts at age five, starting with Kyokushin. After transitioning into kickboxing, Verhoeven began training at the age of seven and started competing against adults when he was only 16 years old, due to his large size. He has trained mainly in Zevenbergen under Dennis Krauweel at Superpro Sportcenter, with fellow kickboxers Benjamin Adegbuyi, Albert Kraus and Alviar Lima.
Combat Approach
Verhoeven is tall and very athletic for a fighter his size. He has a wide arsenal of attacks, most notably his powerful low kicks, and a tight defense. He also worked closely with WBC and Lineal heavyweight world champion Tyson Fury, whom he credits with turning his jab into the highly effective weapon it is now.
Fighter Trivia
Verhoeven and his ex-wife, Jacky Duchenne, have together two daughters and a son . Verhoeven made his film debut in a small role opposite Alain Moussi in the sequel Kickboxer: Retaliation.
