More details have arisen about It's Showtime's venture into Japan. As you may or may not know, It's Showtime announced that they would be going into Japan, starting off with countdown events until It's Showtime Japan debuts next year. This will be the first countdown event and It's Showtime is co-promoting with Stand up JAPAN! to bring REBELS X It's Showtime on July 18. Giorgio Petrosyan vs. HINATA was previously announced for the main event of the show.
Nightmare of Battle is reporting that now Mosab Amrani vs. Chi Bin Lim has been added to the card and will serve as an It's Showtime 65MAX World Title number one contender fight. This fight will also serve as the co-main event. Amrani is coming off of a loss to Houcine Bennoui last month for It's Showtime while Chi Bin Lim has won 4 fights in a row, although he hasn't been that active. The current It's Showtime 65MAX World Champion is Orono Wor Petchpun. Orono hasn't fought in a year, since he last defended his title. It's a good move by It's Showtime, as they've been trying to move towards keeping their champions and divisions active.
More fight card announcements should be on their way, as the event is just under a month and a half away. Be on the lookout here on Liverkick.com and also on Nightmare of Battle.
