If I’ll summarize his fighting style in one sentence, I say “He knows how to win”, he doesn’t throw a lot of hits, but he’s very accurate in timing. He makes a good use of the counter-attack, as well as he keeps pressing on his contenders and makes use of their mistakes.
His main competitive advantages are the low kicks, Knee kicks, left hook, and the accurate punches to the body.
As many of kickboxers, Holzken is not just a kickboxing champion, he’s 2 times European Mai Thai champion, and a professional boxer as well.
