It's Showtime is nothing short of a juggernaut in 2011. The next It's Showtime event is May 14th in Lyon, France, being headlined by Badr Hari vs. Gregory Tony in Badr's big comeback fight. Then, mere days later on May 21 it is back to Amsterdam in the Sand for another big event headlined by Hesdy Gerges against Chris Knowles. That is it for the month of May, then June happens and they head to Poland on the 11th for Danyo Ilunga's first 95kg title defense.
With a show planned for July in Russia with Hesdy Gerges defending his Heavyweight title, you'd think they'd slow down, but they don't. Today it was announced that It's Showtime will head to Madrid, Spain on June 18 for a big show headlined by the King of the Ring himself, Tyrone Spong.
This is good news for kickboxing fans as It's Showtime is not only picking up the slack left by K-1, but putting on way more shows than we got from K-1 last year with the second half of the year yet to be announced yet. Keep an eye on this space for card updates, as there is still a lot yet to be announced.
