Have 10 Euro Handy? Catch It's Showtime on Sunday

If you've been reading LiverKick.com, you know that we fully support It's Showtime the "number two" kickboxing promotion, right up there with K-1. Everything K-1 right now is uncertain, so for It's Showtime to put on such a huge event like this, it makes us all aflutter. Now, I've been seeing a lot of questions about how to view the event, if it will be streamed and if so, how much it will cost. We've heard from It's Showtime for a while now that it will be streamed on showtimefights.nl and will cost 10 euro (about $14), and now it has officially been announced.

As someone who has purchased numerous It's Showtime events, I can assure you that it is worth the 14 bucks to purchase the event and that their streams are top notch. Sure, it isn't free, but supporting a promotion like It's Showtime is important to do as a kickboxing fan. If you've never seen an It's Showtime event before, it is well worth the price of admission for this event, as it'll feature a few big names in the kickboxing world. The headline fight is Hesdy Gerges vs. Daniel Ghita, both men who were involved in the K-1 Heavyweight Grand Prix in 2010, as well as two-time K-1 MAX Champion, Andy Souwer and one of last year's standouts, Chahid.

Jean-Claude Van Damme Has Chosen a Promoter and Country for His Fight

JCVDIt was bound to happen sooner or later, and it did. We've been talking about this mythical fight Jean-Claude Van Damme has been preparing for now for just about two years, and it never felt any closer. There were talks of having Golden Boy promote the fight in Vegas, but after contacting the NSAC it was clear that they had never heard from anyone about a JCVD fight, ever, and that it would be a big risk for Oscar De la Hoya and his crew.

There were talks about China, Thailand, Japan, getting K-1 to promote the fight. There were dates, it was pushed back due to JCVD's schedule, trouble finding a suitable promoter. The list goes on and on and on and sadly, on. But it seems like JCVD has finally found suitable business partners and an arena to host such an event as a kickboxing fight against Somluck Kamsing.

Apparently the legendary Fairtex gym will be hosting JCVD's fight in November or December of this year in Thailand. Banjong Bussarakamwong of Fairtex will be promoting the fight and is currently looking for a suitable 30,000 seat arena, possibly the Impact Arena or the Hua Mak Indoor Stadium. There are talks about the fight being broadcast live across the world as well and Kamsing was given a 200,000 baht down payment (about $6,500).

We'll have to see how this shapes up, but for now this is the most concrete news we've heard on this fight, ever. [source]

Souwer vs. Aussie: AFAV Bombards Us With Awesome

You go on vacation for just a few measly days, then some Delta pilot thinks he is pulling fancy moves, which delays you half an hour and makes you miss your connecting flight. He then jokes about it with you in the Salt Lake City airport before giving you a voucher for 6 dollars worth of food and a crappy hotel room, you forget that Andy Souwer vs. L'houchine "Aussie" Ouzgni is literally days away. Thankfully for me, and thankfully for you, AFAV, a pretty great video production team, brings you close to the action as both men prepare for their bout.

We've posted the first video in the series, which was Andy Souwer discussing the upcoming bout and then getting an inside look at his training. In the second episode, we catch up with Aussie.

We aren't done yet. In the third episode, they move back to Andy Souwer's camp, where he discusses cutting weight, his fallout with K-1 and a possible move to MMA. After the break the next two episodes.
