κηρύξω is the future tense: κηρύγ + σ + ω (γ + σ => ξ), but when you syllabify you break it down as
κη-ρύγ-σω (I'm pretty sure the consonant cluster γσ cannot be pronounced together which is why the γ goes with the 2nd syllable???)

If you listen to Modern Greeks pronouncing Greek, λέ-ξεις and κη-ρύ-ξω is exactly how they pronounce it. I am not sure where you got "kay reik so" for κηρύξω, unless by 'reik' you mean 'reek'. In Classical and Koiné Greek 'υ' was pronounces as German ü or french 'u' in 'tu', and in Modern Greek as 'ee'.
