Former GLORY heavyweight challenger Hesdy Gerges has accused the current champion Rico Verhoeven of hiding and ducking a fight with him.
Gerges, 36, and Verhoeven are not the best of friends since the champ had some critics for Hesdy in 2019.
The two exchanged words at the post-fight press conference following Rico’s TKO win against Badr Hari at GLORY Collision 2 last December.
Hesdy said that Badr Hari deserved the win in the rematch, but Verhoeven was having none of this and replied to him “shut the f**k up or otherwise put on your gloves.”
Here’s what Gerges had to say yesterday about the champion:

Rico, don’t hide behind your organization. You had a big mouth and now you must come motherf*ucker. Glory is back and now they have to come with real bad blood! They cannot solve a problem with the mindset it caused. They have to come with something tough… Fans and Haters want to see this. So @ricoverhoeven tell your boss not to protect you anymore! Be a man of word and not only a b*tch with a big mouth… Osu! #FIGHTERHEART
Currently, Gerges doesn’t have a contract with any major kickboxing organization, but that could change in the upcoming months.
