Glendy Hernandez Training Through The Holidays

By Reynaldo Sanchez

The “Guantanamo Giant” - Cuban heavyweight Glendy Hernandez 9-0-0 (5 KO’s) - doen’t sleep much and in spite of the holiday season he is working hard at the Caicedo’s Sports GYM in Miami and focused to come back to the ring early in 2013.

In his last fight on September 15th, at The Plush Entertainment Complex in Jacksonville, Florida. Hernandez beat Andrae Carthorn within fourth rounds. Before, in July 21th he won by KO in the second rounds against Tobias Rice at The Seminole Hard Hotel & Casino in Hollywood. Fla.

“Is important to us to be in shape and not lose our strength and physical conditions. And we need to be ready to fight at any time. We are focused on reaching our goals in 2013,” stated Hernandez.

German Caicedo, the head trainer, and assistants Claudio Lamont and Micky Ward, work every day with Hernandez. They have sacrificed several weeks to get a big result, that’s the cost to place him at the top of the heavyweight rankings. Meanwhile, the "Guantanamo Giant" doesn’t leave the gym because he wants to reach his goals very soon.

Acquinity Sports promoter Henry Rivalta told us - “Glendy is a great fighter and a better person. He has the skills and conditions to do great things inside his division in 2013. We are very proud for everything that he's done this year, and we expect a lot of great victories in the future.”
