(In hindsight, this probably wasn’t the smartest name for Hesdy’s supplement brand.)
According Parool.nl, Dutch SWAT team members kicked in the door of the It’s Showtime heavyweight champ’s apartment in Amsterdam today and arrested Gerges, who was sleeping at the time, as part of a cocaine trafficking ring in Belgium. Besides the K-1 standout, four other suspects were also detained as authorities searched 10 properties belonging to Gerges, confiscating several weapons, ammunition and computers.
Police,who indicated that Gerges will likely be extradited to Belgium to face charges said that the group is accused of dealing, or attempting to deal more than 128 kilos of coke.
Gerges is scheduled to face Daniel Ghita at It’s Showtime’s March 6 event in Amsterdam, but there’s a pretty good chance that he may be busy that night.
