Peter Aerts confirmed today to Dutch site Round1Network that as rumored, he will be fighting Tyrone Spong on June 30 for It's Showtime. He also mentioned that the event will be at the Brabant Hallen in Den Bosch, Holland. The fight will be the last of his legendary, illustrious career.

Spong is one of the toughest possible match-ups for "The Dutch Lumberjack," and it's fitting, as Aerts has fought the best of the best for his whole career, from beginning to end. Before the fight happens, Spong will face off with Melvin Manhoef on January 28. The fight card of the event on June 30 will be announced during It's Showtime's show on January 28.

Aerts hasn't fought in Holland since 2007 when he stopped Bob Sapp. It's great that he gets to go out for one last time in front of his home country before he calls it a career.

It's Showtime today announced that Chahid Oulad el Hadj and Danyo Ilunga have both been forced to withdraw from their respective fights on January 28 due to injury. Ilunga was set to face Mourad Bouzidi in a -95kg fight and Chahid was set to face Harut Grigorian in a 70kg fight. Chahid has a dislocated shoulder and Ilunga has an elbow injury.

The It's Showtime 70kg World Champion, Chris Ngimbi will be stepping in for Chahid against Grigorian, making the fight a rematch of their fight from October of 2009 where Grigorian won a decision in an extra round. Ngimbi said a while back that he was planning to fight in January, so this match-up works out perfectly.

It's not really surprising that Danyo Ilunga is out of the event. He's currently in Congo, his home country so it figures that something was up with him. Read the full news release from It's Showtime below, or go to their website and read it here.

January 12, 2012 -

Unfortunately two fighters were forced to withdraw themselves due to injuries from the IT’S SHOWTIME event in Leeuwarden on January 28.

Chahid Oulad el Hadj suffers from a dislocated shoulder, while Danyo Ilunga has a severe elbow injury.

IT’S SHOWTIME 70kg max world champion Chris Ngimbi will replace Chahid Oulad el Hadj. Ngimbi will face Harut Grigorian, who is responsible for a bad spot on Ngimbi’s record. Young prospect Grigorian, who left a longlasting impression against Andy Souwer in the IT’S SHOWTIME ‘Fast & Furious 70 max’ 8 man tournament of last September, defeated ‘The African Warrior’ by decision on September 24, 2009, in Lommel, Belgium. So for Ngimbi, this is his chance for revenge.

We are currently still in negotiation with several fighters to determine who will take the spot of Danyo Ilunga in the fight against Mourad Bouzidi.

We hope to have informed everyone in time. At this moment there are no other injuries or changes on the fight card. For the entire fight card, click here.

There were rumors of a big kickboxing event in Singapore at the end of last year, but the show was postponed to figure things out, as Andy Souwer and Giorgio Petrosyan were featured on the event but didn't even know about it. Now though, the event has acquired Andy Souwer and Albert Kraus among others, two huge names in the world of kickboxing. Antuan Siangboxing (Antoine Pinto) said he was fighting for K-1 at the end of February, and it looks like this was what he was talking about. It might not be K-1, but it has some big names on the card and with Singapore booming, hopefully some money is being put into the sport over there,  like OneFC in MMA.

Andy Souwer takes on Naruepol Fairtex, a stablemate of Yodsanklai who is a veteran of the sport, having fought names such as Giorgio Petrosyan, Yodsanklai and Yohan Lidon. Naruepol is obviously much better suited to fighting in Muay Thai and the favorite is definitely Souwer. He's past his prime days but he can still hang with a lot of fighters and it should be a decent test for Souwer. Naruepol is coming off two straight wins over Marco Pique and Jonay Risco, while Souwer last beat Toby Imada in a rematch at Shoot the Shooto 2011 in shootboxing.

Albert Kraus will take on Ekapop Sor Klinmee and again, Ekapop is probably better suited to Thai rules. Ekapop will be fighting at Yokkao Extreme against Diego Santuccio. Ekapop is pretty old and he just got beaten badly in Cambodia at the end of 2011 so Kraus if of course the favorite. Kraus is coming off a mediocre 2011 year where he went 2-3.

Rounding out the card are three members of the Siangboxing gym and Andy Souwer's teammate, Henri van Opstal and you can see who they're fighting on the full fight card below. 

70KG
- Andy Souwer(Holand) vs Naruepol Fairtex(Thailand)
- Antuan Siangboxing(France) vs Bow Suweilek(Malaysia)
- Albert Kraus(Holand) vs Ekapop Sor Klinmee(Thaiand)
- Henri Van Opstal(Holand) vs Kim Dong Su(Korea)
60KG
- Leo Siangboxing(France) vs Lee Jin Hwan(Korea)
- Mathias Siangboxing(Italy) vs Tum Sityodtong(Thailand)

Jerome Le Banner is a man after our own hearts; he fights and he fights as much as he can. The 39 year old warrior has begun what he calls the "Le Banner World Tour" which consists of exactly what it sounds like -- JLB traveling the world and fighting opponents. The next stop for JLB in 2012 seems to be stepping back into the MMA ring after not competing in MMA since late 2010. JLB has been focused on professional wrestling over the past year but has remained competing in Kickboxing.

According to our friend Wojslaw Rysiewski of MMArocks.pl the main event of KSW 18 in Poland on February 25 against Marcin Rozalski. Rozalski is 2-0 in his MMA career while JLB is 3-2.

The stacked Yokkao Extreme card is getting closer day by day, and just the thought of seeing Buakaw, Giorgio Petrosyan, Saenchai, Sudsakorn and all the other great fighters on the same card makes me giddy. Yokkao's videos are some of the best in the business, highlighting their brand and fighters in excellent quality. Today they released an official promo for Yokkao Extreme, which takes place on January 21st. We've got the video for you, which features the top fighters on the event.
