Le Banner Fighting at Tatneft Cup Finals

French kickboxing legend Jerome “Geronimo” Le Banner is in action at the Tatneft Cup Finals taking place on 15 December in Kazan, Russia.

Le Banner will face Russian fighter Vyacheslav Datsik in a super fight at the event, which will crown this year’s tournament champions in three weight categories. TNA Fights announced the match today.

The 46-year-old Lebanner is still active in the sport, recently picking up a couple of wins in Japan for the HEAT promotion.

The French legend is best known for his time with the K-1 organization in Japan. Le Banner debuted for K-1 in 1995 and fought for the promotion for over a decade, battling many of the sport’s biggest names. He never won the World GP title but was twice the runner-up.

Datsik, 42, has fought in both kickboxing and MMA.
