If you don't know by now, Simon Rutz, the owner of It's Showtime is quite active on Facebook and replies to many fan questions. Recently, Rutz has been hinting at a big announcement that he'll release at the beginning of September. As we posted on here before, Rutz said that It's Showtime might plan a huge event if K-1 does not live up to their promises.
Rutz, in the past few days has said quite a few interesting things relating to a huge It's Showtime event, a big fight for Badr Hari and It's Showtime in Spain. Here's some recent quotes from Simon Rutz:
"the level of the Spanish fighters are realy high! Soon more information about IT`S SHOWTIME Spain!"
|"Tik tok, tik tok...... Time is running, almost september the first!|
|"Soon i announce a big fight from badr!"|
|Beginning september i tell everything!|
|Big IT'S SHOWTIME event soon to be announced!|
It'll be very interesting to hear what news Rutz has to announce. I think by now it's safe to speculate that It's Showtime will hold another event in Spain, this time in Tenerife. As for Badr's next fight, everything is up in the air right now. With rumors of moving to pro boxing and fighting in the K-1 Final 16 swirling, it's surprising that Rutz would be announcing a new fight for him. As for the big event, it could be the Spain event or a big show in Amsterdam that Rutz has been talking about.
We've got about a week until September starts, so now all we can do for now is sit and wait.
