The main bout of the televised card suffers the last minute change. The heavyweight encounter between Hesdy Gerges and Chi Lewis-Parry fell through. According to the press release the latter tore three ligaments in his hand and wrist during final preparations, consequently was forced to pull out. Tomas “Rattle Snake” Hron (84-17-3, 30 KOs) of Czech is a replacement who takes the challenge against Herges on short notice.

This is the second time when Gerges vs. Lewis-Parry is off. They were originally scheduled for Glory 39 Brussels. The fight was cancelled while both fighters were backstage, with illness cited as the cause.

Czech fighter Hron is a known name in kickboxing circuits. Fighting for over a decade, a former partner of Mirco “CroCop” recorded victories against such competitors as Errol Zimmerman, Andrei Stoica, Catalin Morosanu and Jahfar Wilnis.
