Posted On 11-04-2018 22:03 GMT

Former NGW Tag Team Champion Joe Hendry is in action at the Commonwealth Games this Friday.

The Prestigious One will face Australia's Nicolaas Verreynne in his first match in the 97kg Freestyle Wrestling class at the Gold Coast event on Friday.

Joe's bout is due to take place at 10.30am which is 1.30am UK time.

Joe has competed in Freestyle Wrestling for two years, making huge strides in the sport to be selected for Team Scotland at Gold Coast 2018. His impressive list of Freestyle results include gold at the 2017 British Open and silver at the British Closed Championships, also taking the title at the 2017 Tryst Open Championships. 

In NGW he is known for his brash behaviour as one third of Insane Fight Club, the former NGW Tag Team Champions.

The Prestigious One will be back in NGW on Sunday, May 6 at our 10th Anniversary Show at Hull City Hall. Will he be sporting a Commonwealth Games medal, maybe even gold? We will see!

NGW would like to wish Joe all the best in his quest to win Freestyle Wrestling gold at the Games.
