We at LiverKick.com have been working with the top Dutch kickboxing promotion, It's Showtime to find a way to hook up their American fans who read LiverKick.com religiously, and after receiving the massive package from It's Showtime today, I can tell you that you will not be disappointed with what we have to offer you.
In a world of uncertainty with K-1, It's Showtime has gone above and beyond to pick up the slack and has a ton of shows scheduled for 2011, with more to come! The first show is on March 6th and is shaping up to be incredible. How good is it? The main event is Hesdy Gerges vs. Daniel Ghita, with Andy Souwer vs. L'houcine Ouzgni, Artur Kyshenko vs. Gago Drago and a lot more.
If you somehow aren't familiar with It's Showtime, read around our site or visit ItsShowtime.nl, and you'll see what all the hype is about. It's Showtime actually manages some of the greatest fighters in the game today, from Badr Hari, Hesdy Gerges, Giorgio Petrosyan, Gago Drago, Anderson "Braddock" Silva, Tyrone Spong to Mosab Amrani and more. All of these fighters, plus the likes of Melvin Manhoef, Sem Schilt, Peter Aerts, Yoshihiro Sato and more have competed for them and will continue to compete for them. To say It's Showtime is the real deal isn't even being fair, they are the future of kickboxing.
So we decided to work with It's Showtime to help celebrate the opening of their new webshop, http://itsshowtimeshop.com/en/. Yes, it is in English and yes, they'll probably ship to you without a second thought (as long as you pay them). So if somehow you don't walk away from this contest with some sweet It's Showtime stuff, it'll be alright, you can always help support their new web store and purchase some awesome stuff.

The shirts all come in an adult male XL, but remember that these are European sizes and that it is cotton. Because it is a European size, it runs smaller than a shirt from the United States will. I comfortably fit into US XL and have a decent-sized collection of European death metal shirts (so sue me), and they tend to run a little small, but still fit. As always, you can stretch clothing out and only wash it cold and air dry it so it won't shrink. If you are smaller than XL, don't worry, you can shrink it. Due to how long it takes to ship from the Netherlands to the US (around two weeks), we decided to simply take a "one size fits all" shirt.
