Hesdy Gerges (42-12-1) faces Errol Zimmerman at Glory 11 Chicago in a reserve match for the Glory Heavyweight Championship Tournament.
Gerges was the former It’s Showtime heavyweight champion. He actually defended his title succuessfully against Daniel Ghita. However when the two faced each other again last year, Ghita cleaned Gerges clock with a sweet left hook.
Gerges has been in and around the top 10 heavyweights in kickboxing for the last couple of years, but he hasn’t quite found consistency of form against the very best. However Gerges has recently changed gyms, from legendary Chakuriki Gym to Vos Gym, so perhaps we may see a more improved Gerges.
