Hesdy Gerges Officially Removed from May 21st It's Showtime Card

  • Published in Kickboxing

GergesThe hits keep on rolling, as we quickly approach It's Showtime's May 14th card and their May 21st card there have been a few notable changes, as we just reported, Anderson Silva had to pull out of his bout with Daniel Ghita for the 14th. We have more bad news for It's Showtime fans, as many will remember, Hesdy Gerges has found himself in some legal trouble of late, and has now been extradited to Belgium to be interrogated about his possible involvement with cocaine trafficking.

The bad news is that It's Showtime no longer believes that Gerges will be able to participate on their May 21 card. They have removed him from the official card line up on their website, and Simon Rutz confirmed on his Facebook account in response to a fan that Gerges is out for the time being. This leaves It's Showtime without their main event for the card, but Robin Van Roosmalen vs. Mohamed Khamal is a great bout that could easily fill in for the absence of Hesdy Gerges on the card.

We'll keep you updated on any further updates for It's Showtime's May 14th and May 21st cards and who will fill in what spot. Hopefully they find an opponent for Chris Knowles.

Raul Catinas and Hesdy Gerges the Latest Fighters Confirmed for K-1 WGP Final 16

  • Published in K-1

GergesThere has yet to be anything official from K-1 yet when it comes to who is fighting in the K-1 World Grand Prix Final 16, but that is alright as we've already heard from a few fighters' camps already, talking about their inclusion. So far we know that Dzevad Poturak, Paul Slowinski, Mirko Cro Cop, Ben Edwards and probably Daniel Ghita will be fighting in the K-1 tournament. There are other names rumored, like Sergei Laschenko and Catalin Morosanu, but we've yet to see anything official to that effect yet. The latest names added to the list are that of Raul Catinas and Hesdy Gerges, confirmed by their coach, Thom Harinck.

Catinas is a great addition, as a young fighter who has been continually improving over the past few years. Catinas, a Romanian fighter, has primarily been fighting for SuperKombat for the past two years in his home of Romania. His signing hints at the possible SuperKombat partnership we've been hearing about for a while, but regardless, Catinas serves as a great addition to the tournament at age 24 riding on a five fight win streak.

The addition of Gerges helps to legitimize the tournament, as Ghita will serve as the third participant in the tournament, on top of Ghita and Laschenko, who are ranked in LiverKick.com's Top 10. Daniel Ghita is a strong #2, Laschenko is #6 and Gerges is at #10. Gerges has had a tough few years after looking incredibly strong in 2010. This doesn't mean that he can't rebound, as this tournament will be a perfect chance for him to string a few quality wins together and get himself back in the discussion as one of the elite Heavyweights.

Video: Hesdy Gerges vs. Benjamin Adegbuyi from Glory 18

  • Published in Video

Glory has finally released probably the most anticipated superfight from Glory 18 in Oklahoma. We have the talented, young, rising star in Benjamin Adegbuyi against the experienced veteran that is Hesdy Gerges. 

First of all, the pace in this fight for two huge men was incredible. Watching this fight I remember thinking "This is only round 1!?!" Both men were throwing from bell to bell all 3 rounds in what ended as a very close fight. The fight really could have gone either way but I think what may have swayed the judges was the more flashy stuff from Benny. Glory does state during their rules meeting that flashy kicks like back kicks, high kicks, and flying knees will score higher with the judges. Hesdy was quite unhappy with the decision to say the least.

Anyway judge it for yourself tell us what you think.

Liverkick Exclusive: Glory 18 Calm Before The Storm Video

  • Published in Video

So our one man camera crew (Carlo) managed to get all the pre and post fight interviews while taking behind the scenes footage which I like call the calm before the storm. I saw him running around like a maniac trying to get footage of everyone, but after watching this video, man was it worth it. It really captures the feeling of being back stage before these shows, the way everyone warms up differently, some super calm, some screaming and smashing the pads. There is always tension especially when everyone's change rooms were right beside each other and most people could hear their opponent warming up. It's great to see how the fighters that we love to watch fight their hearts out, prepare right before putting on an amazing show for us. 

This is just a sample of the videos that we will be making for the upcoming Glory shows, Enjoy!

Qabala Fight Series #1 Videos

  • Published in Kickboxing

Here are a few of the fight videos from Qabala Fight Series #1 on June 29th, 2014. Starting with Albert "The Hurricane" Kraus getting back to his winning ways by putting massive amounts of pressure, moving forwards and throwing fast, powerful hand combinations. Erkhan Varol is an explosive, tricky fighter but very short for the weight class so Kraus was able to use his size wisely to take the decision. Not taking anything away from Varol, he put up a great fight against a dutch kickboxing legend.

Next we have Mosab Amrani making short work of Lim Chi-Bin. The actual fight starts at 4:50 of the video after what seems like the longest intro ever. About 50 seconds into the first round Amrani lands a perfect switch left knee to the liver of Chi-Bin, once he gets up its just a matter of time before its going to get hit again and it comes by way of left body kick 20 seconds later.

Last of all Hesdy Gerges against Jamal Ben-Saddik just so everyone can watch how ridiculous this was. We can all wonder what could have possibly been going through Saddik's mind during this absolutely uncalled for insane behavior, and poor Hesdy hes been assaulted like this twice in the ring, first time was by Badr Hari back in 2010 on It's Showtime. Saddik's was worse though not only did he throw a kick while he was down, but he paused then proceeded to try and ground and pound Gerges, not to mention this was barely even 20 seconds into the fight.
