Despite Win Over Hinata, Giorgio Petrosyan Broke His Hand Again


Last weekend on July 18, Giorgio Petrosyan picked up another win against Hinata Watanabe in the first It's Showtime Japan Countdown event. Petrosyan took a unanimous decision.

What we didn't know until now though, is that Petrosyan walked away with a broken hand. This isn't the first time he's broken his hand. It's happened atleast 4 times in the past 3 years. It's a re-occurring injury for Giorgio. The main problem seems to be that his hand has never gotten enough time to fully heal and thus breaks again. With the it's Showtime Fast & Furious 70MAX tournament exactly two months away, Giorgio will need to make a crucial decision. Let the hand heal properly and drop out of the tournament, or go into the tournament with the risk of making the hand worse and potentially lowering his chances to win. With Giorgio's hand currently in a cast, it's difficult to tell if he'll be able to compete in It's Showtime's tournament as he won't be able to punch anything with it for a while.

Here's an Italian news source, translated:

New win and a new injury to his left hand for Giorgio Petrosyan. In Japan, the two-time world champion K-1 World Max Japan beat the points Watanabe Hinata confirming once again the best fighter in the -70 kg category.

The athletes of Team Satori won all three rounds. The opponent has tried to win groped for all.Heedless of the arbitrator and admonitions, in all of the filming took punches upside prohibitedby the regulation. To embarrass Petrosyan were, however, the 8 oz gloves: too light for the strength of his fists. As had already occurred in the past editions of the K-1 World Max, have not been able to absorb shock and a fracture to the hand that seemed to be resolved is reopened.

It seems that he has the "Fedoreque Hand" - always breaks, never heals and always is an issue. The guys shouldn't hit that hard ;-)

That's really bad considering that there is that IS tournament on it's way, and from a medical point of view and in terms of longtime kickboxing on a high level he should take a break.

Maybe fighting with a cast still on, would improve things?:P

Really sorry for Petro, he is such a force...

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.
