The organisation of It's Showtime is doing something very good for K-1. These events are really awesome. The showtime of 29/11 was great, and it looks like this one in May could be even greater.

BTW @Chrzan_ko : don´t you think that by May 16, the fightcard will have changed several times? ...=)

Good to see they got Leko back in action... and against Manhoef! Two explosive technical fighters. Too bad they couldn't get Holzken to fight Khysenko.
Spong vs Saki, Souwer vs Drago... My compliments to It's Showtime. They live up to their name ;)

great card! Saki over spong, Souwer over Drago, Kyshenko over Petrosyan
the last time I saw Leko fight he did not look so good. So I will wait for that prediction, I want to see how manhoef does during the GP

Spong looks like he is making some noise and wants to fight with the big boys, I guess saki is a good place to start since he is no that big, but I expect Saki to beat him none the less

Hope the fights doesnt change. Kyshenko vs Petrosyan will probably last to a points decision but what a dream fight if these supertecnuical fighters go for a war.

Wow awesome fightcard!! Really looking forward to spong-saki, hard to decide who is going to win that but i think saki on points. Kyshenko - Petrosyan = awesome lol I think that Petroysan will win this comfortably, maybe even by KO. And of course looking forward to the legend that is Andyyyy Souwwwer haha. I predict another KO victory for him. :)

Let's hope the judges are replaced this time. Would be a shame to have another outrage like the previous event.
Nevertheless, looking really forward to these great match-ups!

Who would for example write a better fight report than a fan who actually was at the fight? Or who could write a more interesting fighter profile than the fan who loves and really knows about a fighter? We believe that this approach will lead to that fansofk1.com has the most interesting K-1 information.
