Weekly Poll Results: Will There Be a K-1 World Grand Prix?

Poor LiverKick.com's Weekly Polls. Fraser Coffeen had to step back from the day-to-day kickboxing grind for the best of his growing family, and sadly I've been playing catch-up with a lot of the things Fraser did on a daily basis. It's safe to say that Fraser did a lot of stuff and we'll miss having him here to help out.

Anyway, onward. In our last poll we asked if there would be a K-1 Heavyweight World Grand Prix this year, and while "Yes" did win, I'm not sure that I believe you guys felt 100% about it.

56.5% of you said yes, there will be a K-1 World Grand Prix.

43.5% believe that no, there will not be.

We are still unsure of exactly what'll happen with K-1, as we were due for a K-1 announcement last week and it never happened, this all just seems par for the course. I love your optimism and I'll do my best to share it.

This week's poll is about controversial Super Heavyweight Badr Hari; Do You Think that Badr Hari is the Best (Current) Super Heavyweight in the World?

Go vote and we'll find out.

It's Showtime Announces New Event, Fast and Furious Five 70MAX Tournament

its showtime

Today, after weeks of speculation for a big announcement, It's Showtime announced their new "Fast and Furious Five 70MAX Tournament" which will take place on September 24 in Brussels, Belgium. Many fans have expressed the desire for a one night tournament much like the K-1 World Grand Prix and now it's finally here.The winner will have to get through three fights in one night to clam a 50 000 Euro prize on top of their fight salary and win bonuses.

The event features some of the top -70kg fighters in the world with names you'll surely be familiar with. The eight participants are as follows:

1)      Giorgio Petrosyan

2)      Andy Souwer

3)      Artur Kyshenko

4)      Gago Drago

5)      Murat Direk├ži

6)      Chris Ngimbi

7)      Harut Grigorian

8)      Pajunsuk Superpro Samui

The quarter finals will be drawn in Belgium by the end of June.

Also on the card will be some of the top fighters from Belgium such as Marat Grigorian who you can catch on It's Showtime Lyon this Saturday vying for the vacant 73MAX title, Marco Vlieger, Sonny Dagraed and Rustemi Kreshnik.

What's also interesting about this tournament is that this is not too far off of the regular schedule for the K-1 MAX World Grand Prix Finals. With the chances looking slim of having a K-1 MAX World Grand Prix this year, this will most likely act as the premier -70kg tournament of the year. Petrosyan, Souwer, Kyshenko and Drago have been mainstays in the K-1 MAX World Grand Prix for a while now and with them set to participate in this tournament, it makes you wonder what they would opt to do if a K-1 MAX World Grand Prix was announced around the same time as this event. Take the guaranteed money you could get for It's Showtime or venture into K-1 where the worldwide glory is, despite numerous fighters having claimed to not have been paid.

The full announcement can be seen on It's Showtime's website here.

Gregory Tony vs. Badr Hari Still on For May 14th

It's Showtime confirmed today that Gregory Tony vs. Badr Hari is still on for the main event of It's Showtime Lyon on this Saturday, May 14th. Simon Rutz confirmed the news to our own Dave Walsh:

"Gregory Tony is oke, no worries! That`s exactly why boxing is going down. To much things are fake!"

So based on this quote, it sounds like Gregory Tony's boxing match against Mike Perez was fixed and that he's not injured. We won't get into that, but it makes you wonder.
