FOK1 Exclusive PART 4: Murat Direkçi @ It's Showtime Barneveld

Part 4 of our backstage videoreport of It's Showtime Barneveld. In this part we focus on Murat Direkçi and his fight with William Diender. After the fight we sat down for an interview.

Be sure to tell us what you think of our reports so we can use the feedback for future projects.

Murat was a really cool, funny and down-to-earth guy. We have so much more footage of him joking around, but unfortunately youtube only lets you add videos of 10minutes max.
I really had to do some serious cutting and leave out cool shots of him getting ready backstage and talking with his teammembers. But I hope you enjoy it anyway :)

If you want to see the fight it self, I suggest you follow these links. They have a cool introduction.

Congrats Janine and Rob, you did an excellent job again.
Very interesting interview.

I hope Direkçi will compete in K-1 Max. He's top 5 in Max

You guys are pretty good at this interviewing. Actually better than some professional reporters. Maybe it's because you really care about what you are doing. I hope there will be much more of these videos in the future

Great interview.
I like what he said about liking Showtime over K-1.
Murat is one of the greatest and apparently one of the coolest.

K-1 has strange changes the last time.
Bringing up Goodridge again, strange stoppages, not many new fighters.
Showtime is a dangerous opponent.

Thnx for the feed everyone. We enjoyed making it and it's nice to read you appreciate it. So we'll keep making reports in the future. I'm still waiting for presscards for their upcoming event in Prague. So start thinking about questions for the fighters on that card ;-)

I always liked Murat as a fighter and in person he's just as cool. Too bad he doesn't like Japan. He would make a great MAX addition. Nevertheless It's Showtime makes sure he gets to fight those guys anyway. Can't wait for his bout against Kyshenko!!!

The best K-1 community online!

The focus is on building a community that offers more to the users than any other K-1 website. The focus is also on that the community should be totally user driven, with the users as main writers of content. 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.
