Manhoef out of retirement to face Slowinski, Kreshnik

Quote:
Following his disappointing semifinal loss to eventual winner Gegard Mousasi at the Dream middleweight grand prix last September, Dutch knockout machine Melvin Manhoef announced his retirement from active competition in a panic reaction to spend more time with his wife and children. Overworked with seventeen bouts in seventeen months leading up to the Mousasi fight, “Marvelous Melvin” just needed a break to recharge his batteries.

Apparently he used a rapid charger, as the 32-year-old kickboxer has ditched his retirement just two months after announcing it, which beats even Paul Daley’s four-month resignation this spring.

Manhoef will take on Polish-Australian Paul Slowinski in an alternate bout at the K-1 World Grand Prix Final in Yokohama, Japan on Dec. 6. The powerful slugger also has another kickboxing bout scheduled next year against Belgian top talent Rustemi Kreshnik on Feb. 8 at It’s Showtime in Antwerpen, Belgium.

Whether the popular former Cage Rage light heavyweight champion will stay with kickboxing for the moment or make a full comeback to MMA competition as well is undecided at this time.

Had a feeling his retirement wouldn't last. Good to see he is still doing MMA.

That has to be a record for the shortest retirement.

Im happy to see him back, I love watching the guy.

He isn't, necessarily. That's what the article says anyway.

This is kickboxing, no news on him doing MMA yet.

Screw MMA, I'd much rather see this guy show what he's best at in K-1.

He's a very small guy for the HW division, but I still see him getting past alot of guys. Slowinski however, is a solid dude.
