It's Showtime 59 is live from Tenerife, Spain in just a few moments here with a stacked card featuring fighters like Andy Souwer, Sergei Laschenko, Andy Ristie, Javier Hernandez and more. The event can be purchased from showtimefights.com for just 10 euros (about $12.50 USD). I will be live tweeting results at @liverkickdotcom as well.
Andy Ristie (R1 - KO) David Calvo - A brutal knee by Ristie that came up the middle put Calvo down very early in the first round and he was unable to answer the count. Props to Calvo for stepping in on late notice, but wow.
Amir Zeyada (Decision) Moises Ruibal - I have no clue what happened in this fight. Major technical difficulties.
Sergei Laschenko (R1 - KO) Danny Garcia
They now bring out Moises Ruibal and announce that the judges score cards were not rendered correctly, and that he is the rightful winner of the bout with Amir Zeyada.
Murthel Groenhert (R2 - Cut Stoppage) Maximo Suarez - Murthel looked a bit rough in R1, but was able to pull it together for the second round and open a nasty cut on Suarez for the finish.
61kg Championship: Masahiro Yamamoto (R5 - Decision) Sergio Hernandez - Masahiro Yamamoto was completely on point throughout the fight. His knees were doing a lot of damage and keeping Hernandez off balance while his hands did a bulk of the work.
Andy Souwer (R3 - Decision) Zeben Diaz - Diaz put up a really great fight, almost a dead even fight with Souwer, but the third round was truly a deciding factor for both men. Souwer rocked Diaz with a right hand which more or less sealed the fate of the bout. Diaz is really a legitimately good fighter.
