SuperKombat on Thursday Features Heavyweight Tournament + Hesdy Gerges vs. Rico Verhoeven

  • Written by Rian Scalia

SuperKombat is set to hold two events this week, one on Thursday in Oradea, Romania and one on Saturday in Darmstadt, Germany. Both cards look really good and feature some many familiar names. The card on Thursday is a SuperKombat Fight Club card. It features a one night, eight man heavyweight tournament and two super fights.

Among the participants in the heavyweight tournament are K-1 veterans Errol Zimmerman, Ben Edwards and Stefan Leko. What I find interesting about this tournament is that along with a few K-1 veterans that everyone knows, there are some fighters in it that are rather under the radar. It should be interesting to see if any of these fighters such as Daniel Sam, Christian Colombo and Slavo Puglic can have some success. It's always great to hear of new talent in the heavyweight division, which has a rather shallow talent pool.It's unclear right now as to which fight is the reserve match. I'd speculate that Stefan Leko vs. Tsotne Rogava is.

It's Showtime World Heavyweight Champion and one of the top heavyweights in the world, Hesdy Gerges returns to action in a pretty decent fight against Rico Verhoeven. Hesdy and Rico are on this card due to the cancellation of the K-1 Final 16 and things turned out perfectly for them to fight. Hesdy is no doubt the favorite here, but it'll say a lot how he does against Verhoeven.

Full card below. The event will be broadcast live on Eurosport.
