Hesdy Gerges has a lot of attention surrounding him after Badr Hari DQ’d himself against Gerges at It’s Showtime’s Amsterdam ArenA event. That being said, the news and fallout have surrounded Badr Hari, with Gerges staying relatively quiet. FightNewz.net caught up with Gerges who discussed the disqualification and how he feels about fighting Badr Hari again.
“Of course I will give him a rematch, because we are fighters.
“I don’t even have to say I will give him a rematch, because the rematch will come anyway.
“We are both at the top so the rematch will happen – maybe for this title (It’s Showtime).
“For me it’s not a problem, bring it on. I do this sport every day, I love it and I like to fight everybody because I’m a real sportsman.”
Gerges said he would have preferred to have won the title by knockout or decision rather than on an infringement, but explained that Hari’s illegal shot scrambled his senses temporarily after taking him by surprise.
