Big Names Confirmed for It's Showtime Event on Jan. 28

from Liverkick.com


Hari, Saki, Ghita, Spong, Gerges confirmed for It's Showtime on January 28th.

It's Showtime owner Simon Rutz took to Facebook today to announce a plethora of big names for It's Showtime's January 28 mega event. Among the fighters confirmed for the event are Badr Hari, Gokhan Saki, Daniel Ghita, Hesdy Gerges, Tyrone Spong, Rico Verhoeven and Ben Edwards. Quite the lineup right there. More fighters and match-ups will be confirmed soon.

 

So far, it's already evident that It's Showtime is stacking the card big time with all their stars. It's Showtime hasn't had any meaningful heavyweight fights this year in terms of rankings besides when Daniel Ghita fought Hesdy Gerges back in March.  Rutz has said that the card will feature all super fights. With all these big names on deck, I'd hope that they would be fighting each other. Based on rumblings within the kickboxing community, it sounds like it may just happen, which would really make these "super" fights.

With tickets going on sale starting October 15th, a safe assumption could be made that actual match-ups could be announced in the coming weeks.

cool
@ronaldo Whyyyyyyy focus on the negative things?
I agree with you: Schilt should be there and Verhoeven has proven nothing up till now.

But man, this event can be awesome.

We must humbly be thankfull to this IS organization. After FEG's death (do they really prepare F16 for october and WGP in Dec ?), IS is last to promote big events for HW and others.
FightCode and Thai fight Extrem are original but are a notch down in the quality. Also,
It is true that we can console from time to time with many events of l UFC or the HW tournament of SForce
Soon for Silva, Barnett and Kharitonov
But it will be difficult to replace the FEG's GP of last years

wink
@ronaldo probably Rico is the famous fighter for many men who will pay a loooot of money for the VIP seats :) I m sorry that Schilt is not fighting for the Dutch public i guess he has his private reasons for not doing so i wonder out of what he lives though.. but i guess he has his job which is not fighting but its only my guess. Well thats the only bigger thing we can expect nowadays... so there is nothing much to do.. but to expect it.

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.
