Hesdy Gerges is a super heavyweight world champion kickboxer from Amsterdam, fighting for Chakuriki gym. He will fight in the final 8 at the K-1 World Grand Prix final on March 15.

We are proud to be Hesdy’s sponsor and we wish him good luck in his first fight against Ismael Londt. If Gerges wins this fight, he might meet Badr Hari in the 1/2 final to qualify himself for the final fight.

This is the first time in history of K-1 that the finals are held outside of Japan, and the selection of the host city is Zagreb, overpowered previously announced, favored New York.

The spectacle will take place at Arena Zagreb before 17,000 spectators.

TV houses from 110 countries around the world have announced live broadcasts of the event.

How to win a limited edition Fighterheart shirt?
Good news for kickboxing fans. Subscribers to our weekly newsletter can win a limited edition shirt, signed by Hesdy Gerges. The official shirt in the heading photo.

So join the promo, grab that shirt by signing-up to our weekly newsletter. You have till 1 April 2013 to sign-up.

Why is ViralBlog a sponsor at the K-1 WGP?
Mainly because Hesdy is a friend and I do his PR and sponsoring.

Another good reason is that K-1 fits our disruptive and viral DNA. We have been fighting our way up the last 5 years.

Last but not least, the UFC geared-up MMA to the #4 Pay TV sports in the USA. So sponsoring Hesdy at the K-1 WGP will give our blog millions of eyeballs on TV and on web video in the long tail. K-1 is getting mainstream as well.

So we sincerely hope that Hesdy will be the last man standing. But we wish the 7 other gladiators a great tournament as well. We hope you enjoy it.
